Weekly Challenge #220

This picture is a reflection in the granite at the bar, just underneath the floating billows above. (Doesn't it look like jelly fish?)

   My husband and I had a quick little getaway to Vegas. Wow!!! Talk about tangle inspiration!! My eyes were going crazy, and I think I was driving my husband crazy too!! I wanted to take pics every turn we made. Whether it was on the floor, the walls, or the ceiling, inspiration was EVERYWHERE!!!! (The top pic, above, was from an amazing Italian restaurant we ate at, and the one below, was hanging above a bar that we sat at.) Just beautiful!!! Anyways, I do have some inspirations that I want to break down and try to create new tangles.
   So while my husband was at the Recycling Expo, I had time to have a little RandR! While doing so I enjoyed playing with the tangle 'All Boxed Up' by Alice Hendon, CZT, of Creators Leaf. What a fun tangle it is!!! Thank you Alice for sharing it with us, and thank you Laura for introducing it!!! 
   I wished I had taken a picture of my string, before tangling. I just went with it,....and enjoyed the process!!!! I felt the need to add some organic flow to it too though!! 
I also felt the need to add color.!

Here with a little more color and flipped!
   I may just want to play a little more with 'All Boxed Up'! What fun it is!!

   Again, thank you for the friendly comments! All are read with a smile on my face! :0)
(I almost didn't get to this post. I usually can post on Instagram much quicker than a post.) You can follow @5acarlo. I will see you there!
Go put

Beautiful Tiles, Annette. Love the freeflowing design, and how you positioned the elements of All Boxed Up. Love the color. Wonderful post, and terrific photos.

I had to laugh at your post, I did the same thing to my poor husband when we were in Vegas. Even the bathrooms had tangles! Glad to hear you enjoyed yourself. Nice boxed up too!

Great pictures and love the combination of All Boxed Up with the organic tangles. Nice touch with the color. Brings everything together but is not overpowering.

So lovely post and a beautiful challenge tile! Great use of "All Boxed Up" in combiantion with the other tangles! Especially I like the flowinf effect of "All Boxed Up" ... very creative!
