New Tangle: "Autumnal"

Autumn may be just a memory now for everyone on this side of the world...but here's a tangle honoring it anyways ^_^

Start with a line, curvy or straight (but not too curvy)

Add some wavy lines, with a corner every other time you meet the central line. I like to think of this as drawing a bunch of really fat Ms.

Do the same thing on the other side, but with corners where you have curves and vice versa. If that makes any sense.

Add a large teardrop shape in each curve.

It got flipped and I don't know how...but it's not a big deal ^_^ Add two more shapes behind the large teardrop.

Put smaller "leaves" in each corner and you're done!

In case the first few steps confused you, here's the shape that's being repeated on the curve.

Enjoy and be inspired! ^_^

  5. Ahhhh... Super! and relaxing. Linda's version is pretty, but made it seem like this tangle would be hard. But no, it's quite easy and "leafy" for autumn.
