Diva Challenge #134: Beamz

I tried this tile without a border or a string. I started with drawing Beamz diagonally down the center of the tile. Then I attempted to have each pattern work more organically with the pattern next to it. So I put Paradox in the triangular shapes made by Beamz and then put Munchin next to it. Then I used parts of Crescent Moon on the other side of Beamz and the grid lines for Bales coming out of the squares of Beamz.

Diva Challenge #133 Tipple

I did this for the Diva's challenge on Tipple, but never got around to posting it in time for the challenge.
