Shelly Beauch and Brayd

Last week's Diva Challenge featured the tangle, Brayd, by Shelly Beauch (aka Michele Beauchamp CZT). I love Shelly's delicate and joyful way of tangling! Looking at her work instantly brings me to smile:)
  Even though I had the challenge completed last Wednesday, I'm just now getting to the posting part. Better late than not at all...

In my first tile, I had made a string of thick borders that converged in the middle. I filled each border with Brayd, and saw that the 'ends' of each  stroke could connect to the new ones I was making. I ended up with one big weave, which was fun, but the 'braydness' wasn't there anymore. I started the second one with a  more 'Shelly-like' spiral string, but I still couldn't stop myself (and why would I?) from extending the little double lines into spaces all around it.
    Thanks, Shelly, for some joyful tangle time!

  1. Wow! Both are beautiful tiles, I see brayd in the second one, the first one doesn't look like brayd but is beautiful in it's own right.

  2. Both lovely and I like the playfulness (is this a correct English word?) in the second!
