Diva Challenge #229- '+ and -'

I am guilty of not using strings to help guide me as much as I should use them. So this was enjoyable for me to fill a space but also leave room for the tangles to 'breathe'. That's what I took from the experience at least!  Had fun, thanks!

  1. Great interpretation, I like the Rixty flowing through the space.

    1. I tried hard to keep in mind the idea of open space and try not to jam a million things inside the string.
      I liked your challenge very much. Thanks. Sarah

  4. Does this mean the Rixty is a "space invader"? Do you have to be of a certain age to understand the reference in my comment?

    1. Love that game!! I was under the age of 10 when it was big but still remember it. Rixty indeed was allowed to invade a wee bit of space. :)

  10. Nice job. I am also guilty of not using strings as much as when I started out. I find I use them when I am stumped!

  12. Such a great tile! I really love the balance of the tight pattern (I can't recall the name of that one), white space and the wandering "Rixty". Well done!

  13. I love your breathing Rixties! You have a good contrast between them and the other really beautiful new tangle whose name, like Michele, I cannot recall. I find that Rixty often does unpredictable things!
