On Monday 4/23, the offered up this weeks challenge.  We were to do a tangle that represented Earth Day. A round tile was suggested or themes concerning Earth Day.  I had a black circle tile to use and inked it with a white Micron pen.  My tangles from top left are the pattern "Black Eyed Peas" representing amoeba,"Afterglow" representing palm fronds,"Bales" representing wheat, middle left side pattern "Fern" for ferns, of course, "Feather" representing birds of all types,the center is a variation of "Paradox" representing diamonds,"Betweed" representing waves.  Lower left starts with "Barber Pole" for snakes, along with "Ahh" for snowflakes, then finally a "Bulb Lantern" variation that looks like rolly poly bugs to me, so represents all bugs! This was really fun to do, thanks, Laura the "Diva"!
