Diva Challenge #97

The challenge this week from Laura at I am the Diva was to do a tangle with "No Strings Attached".

We were to create a tile, zendala, or ZIA without using a string.
I had a lot of fun with this one and took 3 different approaches.

We have recently been catching up with the first four series of  "The Big Bang Theory", a program which makes me laugh out loud.  So my first Zia was based on the "Big Bang!"


 
The second idea I was inspired by a tile from last week's challenge, Sorry I can not remember who's tile this was. It was to use Hollibaugh and tangle the spaces (I hope that doesn't count as a string)




For the third ZIA I decided to take a random approach.

Using the Tangle Patterns website I asked one of my family to randomly choose a letter, then depending on how many tangles started with that letter I got them to choose a random number, this gave me my first pattern. I just kept going like this until I had filled up the whole page.

 This is fun as it takes the control away from you and I used some patterns that before I had skipped past without even considering. You also have to find a way to make these random patterns work together.
