Tangle patterns: Jailed Johnny and Pop-Pop

When I was at CZT training in Providence this past October, one of our tasks was to roam around the hotel or outside, and find a pattern we could break down into steps to share with others..  broken down into simple strokes.   I had fun roaming the Hotel Providence and looking at the walls, specifically some of the gilded frames around the artwork.   The following pattern emerged,  which morphed the more I drew it.  During our class session I was mulling over a name for it with my table mates..    I decided to stick with the name Norma suggested:  “Jailed Johnny”, as it looks like apples in a little prison…

Last month while browsing what friends were up to on Facebook, a friend from the other side of the state posted a wonderful cut paper pop out that caught my eye, and upon closer inspection, I thought it would be fun to try and make a tangle pattern from it.. the end result I call “Pop-Pop”, imagine a pop-up card with these lines cut and folded… (and thanks, Nick, for the inspiration!)
