Welcome to another Tangled Tuesday! In addition to tangling my heart out over the past few days, I’ve been having a little fun spending money at the craft store (ahem), so have lots of good stuff to share with you this week. Hope you enjoy!
Once again this week I started AND finished a slightly larger piece – a 6″ x 6″ tile in a sort of Zendala format. I am on a roll!
Next was joey’s weekly tangle challenge #87, which was to use Xplode in a monotangle. I wasn’t at all sure what I was going to do with this one, but then I remembered that I had a stack of black tiles and a whole batch of Souffle pens (see above!) just begging to be broken in… so I went for it.
A few tips for the uninitiated (of which I was one) about using Souffle pens:
- Work slowly and be patient or your pen marks WILL bleed and/or smudge and/or run all over the place.
- Allow your pen marks to dry thoroughly (and I do mean thoroughly) before going over them again or they WILL bleed and/or smudge and/or run all over the place.
- Did I mention being patient?
- Oh, and remember clear your workspace of cat hairs. If that’s even possible. *sigh*
Finally I completed The Diva’s Challenge #244, which this week was to do a “Tripoli Triptastic” tile. This was a new pattern to me, and though it looks like it should be a rather simple one, I’m not entirely convinced I really got the hang of it. Guess I need a little more practice.
Now on to a new week of tangling!
