Have You Sent Me Your Tangles?


Putting out the call one more time before I seriously get down to work on this new book. So I had a great idea to make one book that contains all my tangle patterns and all of Christine and Sandra’s patterns as well. Then I got the idea to invite my Facebook group Tangle All… Continue Reading

Anemone, New Tangle


I have been needing to step out this pattern for awhile now. Anemone. It was named by someone looking at my art on Instagram. I use it a lot in underwater art. Here is an example. Very basic. Those two floating blobs with arms. Very similar to squid but different. Anemone starts with a center… Continue Reading

Dayz Eaze, New Tangle


Don’t let the wording fool you. This is not a brand new tangle – it was published in the Tangle Starts Planner. But – it has never been posted here on the website. So I am correcting that oversight in today’s post. Dayz Eaze is that pretty section forming the crossbar for the initial A…. Continue Reading

A Little Tangle Time


Christine is my dear friend who I met through tangling. Tangling is a way to make some incredible friends and Christine is just that! She helps me oversee the Facebook group, she helps me with this website, she helps me make the books happen. And we talk about our grandbabies and children and art of… Continue Reading

String Time!


String Time is a lot of fun! It is the Thursday activity in my Facebook group Tangle All Around. Each week I draw a string and post it, asking members to feel free to tangle it and show us what they did. And each week several members post artwork they made using the string. This… Continue Reading

Back to Basics


Let’s go back. Back to the beginning. Back to what we learned to get us started. Back before we learned so much that it is hard to recall how we got hooked in the first place. Back. To the basics. What am I talking about? I am talking about tangling. The basics, the bare bones,… Continue Reading

Tombows and Marabu Graphix


I want to catch you up on a couple pieces of art that I have completed. Just small pieces because that is mostly what I have time to do. Work in small increments. Otherwise I get discouraged that I never complete anything. Because. You know. Life. Recently I walked you through how I made this… Continue Reading
