Phicops Monotangle #8

Mindful Creations     Adventures in Montangles #8-Phicops

Roy's monotangle this week was created by The Diva's husband B-rad over at i am the diva CZT, B-rad gives and excellent step out and great pics, but I must confess I practiced on a whole sheet of 81/2" X 11" paper and covered the whole thing before I felt comfortable creating on a final tile. Then comes the next confession, and this isn't even Sunday, this was not the first final tile :-)
I have this little problem or should I say my one thing that defines my style, I can't seem to leave anything without some kind of a border. On my tangle tiles I like to go around the edge with a Sharpie marker otherwise it just doesn't look finished to me. Sooo, I was putting the finishing border on the first final tile with a Copper Sharpie marker and it slipped to the inside which made me try to save the tile by creating a pointy border which made my tangle look like it was being devoured by the jaws of death and that's not quite the look I was going for. 
Now, you see before you the final, final tile. I actually thought of starting fresh, but I really liked the way this tangle came out.  The only way to save it was to cut it out, go around the edges with a lighter brown PrismaColor pencil, cut a sea foam green tile, round the edges, and yes, go around with the Copper Sharpie marker before I glued the tangle to the tile, just in case of another slip, then glued the tangle to the tile, signed, sealed, and delivered, so to speak :-)
This tangle can have so many different interpretations depending on which way you face the points and how close together you draw them.
Click over and see what the rest of the entrants have created, theirs is probably more purist than mine, but I liked the sea fan look of mine.

Happy Creating--

That has been quite a lot of thinking and working. But ... it turned out great.

I meant flowing not closing, I don't know how on earth that typo happened!

Great variation of Phicops. Like the end result, even if it was a different kind of Adventure getting there.

I love the very pointy look of this - it is so pretty.
