Diva Challenge #131 - Monotangle DEX

I like working with DEX. It's one of my favorites but yet I don't use it enough. Our challenge was to use DEX as a mono-tangle. What a lot of squares for this challenge. I filled the tile with squares then went from there.

Black and white would have been to boring for me so I added some watercolor. Interesting effect. Thanks to Mariet for giving me the idea of writing the name in the piece. I felt it was completely unfinished with a hole just suspended there.

Thanks for stopping by.

This is very pretty. I can see that color is much more exciting.

Great 3 D effect.

Adore that cone effect and great calligraphy!

Great color choice. I admire how you did a background with DEX and a shape above it with DEX, and yet make them look so layered. It means you did a great job with the shadings. And I agree, the DEX text gives your work the finishing touch.

Your cone superimposed on top of a rectangle is quite innovative. Like your green tint too. It adds a lot of interest.

I hadn't heard the term monotangle, but you've done it well! I like the addition of the color, it makes the cone pop.
