all's well that ends well

This week the Diva challenged us to a Duotangle - and it took a fair while for me to find a way for Punzel and Well to work happily together.  They don't easily create harmony.  I tried with a pile of Well-decorated cubes, with the Punzel spilling out of lifted sections - like a strange Jack-in-the-Box but my cubes were way too wonky.

And then, away from the tile, something came to me.  And it was the recollection of those tangles where they wrap round a tube and you get that great sense of perspective, and suddenly I could see what might work.  And I think it did.

Out of the darkness and into the light

Now I'm picturing a rewriting of the fairy tale - Rapunzel is up in her tall tower with nothing to do as she waits for her prince, and so she plays the strange pipe organ she finds there, and her plaits pass through the pipes and grow longer with each song she plays.

  1. LOL, I like your backstory with the organ. What I also like is the very original approach of shading a grid pattern so that it looks like a stack of tubes. Must try this for myself.

  2. Yep, you definitely got it working :)
    The "tubes" effect using the grid shading and fine lines is beautiful, and indeed there is harmony

  9. Great idea. I will have to remember that trick because it would work with a lot of grid-style tangles when you want them to be more than a background. Thanks!
