Between cleaning, sorting, and organizing (which is an ongoing process) I tangled this weeks duotangle  Opus and Jonqal hosted at "Iamthediva".
I have rarely used Opus in my tangles so it was fun learning it and I found the combination very interesting as Jonqal is very perspective and grid kind while opus is all curvy and floral.
Here's the end result

Imagine there's no Heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one ....John Lennon

"Iamthediva" is hosting a challenge "Pinwheel for Peace" on the occasion of International Day of Peace which is on the 21st Sept 2011. "Pinwheels for Peace originally started as an art installation organized by two high school teachers in Florida.  They used the project as a way to teach kids how to express their feelings about the world and what's going on in it.  Since then, it's grown from 500,000 pinwheels the first year to 3.5 million last year!!"

So for this challenge instead of a tile I made a -

...round and round...

...the wheels of the bus goes round and.... the song kept buzzing in my head as I kept turning the tile  around for this "Pair of ducks"
The 38th weekly challenge at "IamtheDiva" is to make a tile using only one tangle and the tangle is "Paradox" one of my favourite tangle.
I just can't get enough of this tangle. I love the complexity of this tile visually and the simplicity of it in making.
The key to this tangle is to keep turning your tile round and round till you get beautiful "Pair of Ducks"(according to Laura) :D and how many tiles did I make?
Not one or two but SIX tiles!!

The first two are before and after shading of the same tile and the rest are just quack quack...
