More Paradox

Margaret Bremner, CZT, has shared notes of many of her paradox explorations in the form of "tips and then some." If you enjoy creating with this tangle we invite you to read her blog entry.

Reading through her blog, I thought about using paradox for a two sided shape. I chose a vesica piscis which is formed by the overlap of two equal circles when the edge of one is on the center of the other.


Here's one result:



Thank you, Margaret, for that inspiration.

Maria and I just took a couple wonderful days off to relax and draw and write. That's why there weren't any blogs these past few days.

It looks like we may take a few more days off as we receive another guest, Irene. Her logo is eerily similar to the tangle above.


Please be patient if our responses and shipping are slower than normal during the next few days.

Our thoughts and best wishes to everyone, particularly to anyone whom Irene might visit.

Hope you all are enjoying some "down-time" with family, friends, loved ones and art!

I have to look at this Paradox some more, Rick. I'm having trouble "Seeing" it ; )

Blessings!

I hope all of you are safe and sound after your visit with Irene.

Know that we are with you ~ as we Whisper Aloha ~ a lullaby ~ to calm Irene ~ may she quickly go to sleep ~ as we refocus with further explorations of Paradox.
love you,
Lois (and Earl)

Yes, the similarity of the weather icon and your Paradox pattern made me do a "double-take/look"!

Did you incorporate the vesica piscis string with your two-sided Paradox pattern? Or was your tangle influenced more by that weather icon? (....inquiring minds......)

Wonderful!!!
(Even just the idea of a two-sided shape is really cool.)
Here's hoping Irene blows through town without creating too much of a fuss. Thoughts are with all those on the east coast.

Neat and clear work you done. I have its plastic measurements or machine which helps to draw any shapes very easily. But never used that. I will use that and share that art in my blog soon.

Great fun you did here, anyway I always thanks for the whole spread, you are a star, your tangling work is totally unique and new to start on this weekend.

That's great! I'd love to see some instructions on how to recreate it ;-)
