TootsieMoon Step Out


Some of these photos are going to look a little strange. The angle is going to be different than you expect and there are going to be a few shadows. I drew these tiles as I sat on my chaise with my foot propped up and iced. I want to introduce you to a tangle… Continue Reading

Floral Color


Recently, I posted the black and white version of this tile as part of a weekly challenge. You can see the post here. This is what I started with. Some fescu, some mooka,  some sunz, some printemps, some tipple, and some flora. All tangle patterns with a bunch of aura-ing. Then today I added color… Continue Reading

Last night on facebook I posted the above picture at The Creator’s Leaf. I was just starting on the new weekly challenge that Joey runs over at MadeByJoey‘s.

This week’s challenge is: tangling in a circle. I expect most tanglers are going to work on mandalas, I chose not to go that route. We were… Continue Reading

Dutch Diamonds, New Tangle


Ready for a new tangle pattern? My husband said it looked like those little pointy hats the dutch girls wore in the old days. (Does anyone know if they actually did wear those cute little hats?) And thus the name came about – Dutch Diamonds. The step-outs for Dutch Diamonds. The first project I used… Continue Reading

Let Me Show You The Steps


People laugh when I tell them I can’t draw, but seriously – I can’t! What I can do is take something one step at a time, and keep adding and building on it until I am finished. Let me show you what I mean. Let’s draw this tile. This is my completed project and is… Continue Reading

Watercolored Shells


Last week we spent a few days at Cedar Key, on the gulf, just relaxing. I took along a sketchbook and my peerless watercolor swatches. The shower curtain had all these lovely seashells pictured on it and I thought that I could certainly draw some of them.  Apart from zentangle and tangling I can not… Continue Reading
