Can you believe it’s 2019 already? I can’t! This past year has just flown by. So many projects started. So many projects in various stages of completion. Hahahahaha! Here is one thing I did complete:
This was a fun piece of art! And it came as a result of a new book I published in December. That border tangle is called Porter and I designed it for Tangle Starts Planner, Into the Future. It is a combination planner and tangle organization book, with the theme of steampunk. Porter reminds me of metallic almost medallion-like plates that would comprise a wall. And it is so fun to draw! (That center section is another tangle of mine called Cee-a-Mosa.)
Porter changes appearance depending on the way you shade it. You may have noticed I shaded each of these pieces differently. In the first piece, I shaded along the straight lines. In this smaller one, I shaded around each petal. To me it makes it look like two different patterns. I’d love to see what you do with Porter.
Did you know there is a whole section of tangle patterns here on the web site? At the top of this page you can click on My Patterns and see the ones I’ve added. More coming all the time! Or you can just click here. Both ways work. Once again, I’d like to invite you to join us on Facebook at Tangle All Around. I post a list of prompts each Saturday that includes 7 tangle patterns to work with that week, a new string, and a technique. No pressure to post ever, just lots of encouragement to feel safe doing so. Hope to see you there!
