Ixorus

Laura's weekly challenge #6 is about exploring our new tangle 'Ixorus'. There are some delightful discoveries such as the way it can easily flow into the next tangle, it will follow curves or straight lines. I like the way it swells and grows to fit any space or fits snugly into a corner.

  4. I like how three of them come together near the top, and the tiny white circle at the center of one. The pure white N'zeppel spaces are like lovely white pebbles.

  13. Wow Shelly, this is great, it really opens up my mind to see that this design is a really great space filler with a "zing" to use as one of my staple tangles :)
