Mandala & Rangoli inspired patterns meet CPT

We have a very busy week behind us. Pattern designers and artists worked together as a team to bring you over 100 new patterns! I can not express how exhilarating it is to work together in a team! Everyone is super-charged! I would mention everyone individually, but I am too scared that I miss someone. I will do that on the front page of the upcoming eBook!

As you know, it’s all about Creative Pattern Tangling.

As mentioned in previous eBooks and write-ups, all patterns are made up the same way: Connect a few simple shapes in an orderly manner to create a base pattern. Then apply various CPT techniques to create your own version of a pattern. I will demonstrate this on the Cornus Base Pattern:

By cleverly applying multiple CPT techniques to a base pattern, amazing results can be achieved. Here I used Paradox, Feathering, and Striping to create the artwork.

Here is an example of how I used another version of the Cornus Base pattern in my tangle:

The following patterns are all based on these 2 base patterns:

2 additional rings have been added. Of course, you can create even larger artwork and add more rings!

.. or even warp the grid!
