It’s That Time Again

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!

Looking for weekly tangling prompts and ideas? Need to meet some sketchy friends to tangle with? Hahahaha! Come join us at Tangle All Around on Facebook. There are 3 simples questions to answer to prove you are not a robot. I will let you in and get you started. Hope to see you there!

  1. I don’t see anything sketchy about your sketches except that they are marvelous sketches! Is there something sketchy about that statement, lol?

  2. I look forward to seeing your posts each day..I save many of them in a folder to go back to. I have collected a number to “tools” to get better at what I do because your using them. Just saw the grid book this morning and wondered why I never thought of doing it that way. Have such an issue with keeping things in perspective Hopefully this will help. Your post help me through a lot of tough days..Many times people are not aware that they make someone else smile or change the direction of there day if only for a little while Very often you do that for me and I just wanted to let you know Thank you

    • thank you, Elaine, I am thankful I can be that friend for you. (and yes, I’m smiling through tears) I am so thankful I can do that for you. so – thanks for making my day better, too <3

  3. Beautiful! Your sketches are wonderful! It is nice to have a book to look back on and practice! Thank You for sharing!

    • you’re welcome 🙂 it wa a really nice surprise to win the book on instagram

  4. You’re right about having everything in one ‘go to’ journal, I love that about ‘Getting Sketchy’ & having somewhere to put all those little bits of paper that end up getting tangled on whilst waiting for the kettle to boil etc……..

    • Yep, one location is helpful so you don’t lose those little papers. Sticky notes work well, too
