Lately when I’ve been ‘trying’ to tangle, I have a lot of . . . do I know any tangles??? What do I know? I can’t remember a thing! Has this ever happened to you? I am probably not the only person who has so many things going on in my life that my brain is just bogged down by the end of the day and I am left with – – – do I know any tangles???Now. Rewind to May. I flew to Toronto to surprise a friend I had never really met in person – just online – who is really as close as a sister. While I was visiting Cindy, my CZT friend Cherryl Moote invited us to spend a little time in her home – and studio – and we did some fun shopping that I talked about here. One of the things Cherri showed us was a tangle book she was building in a moleskine storyboard journal. I loved what she showed us so much that I ordered my own journal from Moleskine and got started.
When I look at cat-kin I remember how I could never get that to look right until Meredith Yuhas taught us the steps in a Retreat to Paradise class.
When I look at verdigogh I remember that it is a cool, versatile tangle that adds a little spice wherever I can use it.
When I look at copada by Margaret Bremner – it reminds me of her little wonky houses – even though there isn’t a single house in the tangle.
Anything by Michele Beauchamp reminds me of her beautiful spirals and I find myself trying to fit one in – even if there isn’t enough space – just because I love them so much!
And when I see those awesome little Lilah Beans I just smile from ear to ear! I love those little beans!
And thanks, Cherri, for letting me take your idea and make my own book!
As a quick reference guide of tangles I am comfortable with drawing – this moleskine journal is awesome! Except for that whole quick part. Any time I sit down with this journal is good for at least 30 minutes because I just get lost in remembering!
