Step-Outs to Naida

  I love my new tangle pattern, and I couldn't wait to post the step-outs to it even though I haven't used it in too many of my tiles just yet...

  I saw the tangle in a video I was watching on YouTube... It was on a curtain. Oh, the places we find tangle patterns....

  I worked on the step-outs and decided that I wanted to name it to have some links to water. I had narrowed the list of possible names down to three. I showed the tangle to a friend and asked him which name suited it the best. He said he liked "Naida" a lot because, to him, the pattern looked like the ripples that would appear in the water if a nymph was standing in it. I love that visual image so much!

  Here are its step-outs:


  And a video showing how I draw it, in case you're more of a hands-on learner:

Here's a tile I did with Joni Toh.

And here's one I did with Danielle DeRome. This one was done for the Travelling Tangles project.

  Here are some pages from my sketchbook:
Some variations of it.

And combining it with other tangles.

  I hope you have fun with this new tangle. I'd also love to see what you do with it, so feel free to leave direct links in the comments section of how you have used it in your art works.

  Another tangle? Ever thought that it's annoying how "Mooka" doesn't 'close' properly? Here's how I fixed it. It's my version of Mooka.
