Tile X2

Margaret Bremner, a fellow CZT, brings us this week's Diva Challenge (number 35!). She invited participants to first create a string that included a small square with a large border, then add a string to that. It creates a very orderly tile, with wild things happening in the space between the strings. I thought, since things have been busy round these parts, I would only do one this week. And I felt like I was cheating a bit by using two colors to define the difference between the tile and the border. But I kept reminding myself that the challenge and its "rules" are really just suggestions, just like the string itself is a suggestion; rather than something that binds my decisions, the challenge gives me the groundwork to jump into realms not yet discovered! So, while letting myself have so much fun, two tiles came about.
   Thanks Margaret! Thanks, Laura!
