Hahaha! Yep! It’s time for Getting Sketchy! You may be asking what that is. And you wouldn’t be alone. Getting Sketchy is the time in Tangle All Around when we post photos of the tangles and techniques we practiced during the previous week. Why Getting Sketchy? First of all many of us work in sketchbooks. And secondly, when I worked law enforcement the term sketchy was used when talking about something that was unclear, something that may need looking into, something about a person or thing didn’t seem right. Many times it would lead to an arrest. In Tangle All Around no one gets arrested but we do show each other what we worked on that week – the good stuff and the sketchy/not quite so good stuff. Hahahaha! We learn from each other and it is great fun!
This past week we focused on rangoli art patterns. There are so many of them. I didn’t have time to draw the steps to each tangle, just a few. But it was fun!
I focused on a few that I could do fairly quickly. I don’t have a lot of time to do this particular activity, although I need to do it more often than I do. It really helps build your tangling skills.
Recently I won this awesome Doodle Journal on Instagram from a company called ColorIt! On Instagram they are coloritcom, they also have a website. I am using the doodle journal for getting sketchy and to do a little drawing in from time to time.
The nice thing about doing Getting Sketchy! in a specific sketchbook or journal means all those patterns are in one place. Take it traveling with you or just to your sofa at night while you eat popcorn and watch tv. It’s convenient and fun! Getting Sketchy! It’s where it’s at today!
