Here is a new string idea I came up with. Feel free to borrow it and tangle up your own tile. Use this link to print the string. It will fit on a 3.5″ tile. It is easy to transfer. Use a pencil and shade the back side of the string. Then place the template… Continue Reading

Tangling With Mickey

1 Comment

One of our recent stack and tangle prompts was to use found papers. To find a paper that you could tangle on and turn into a piece of art. It just so happens I checked into a Disney World resort that day and had a packet of information available to me. I found this sheet… Continue Reading

Feather Stacking


 You keep hearing me talk about stacking tangles. Right now I am working on feather stacks. You see, each of those little v-shaped sections is a separate stack. Let me walk you through how I made this. I love me some bright, beautiful, vibrant color! To get this color effect I wanted, I used some… Continue Reading

Coloring Page Perhaps?


I drew this quite awhile ago and never posted it. I found it buried on my desktop :). With all the interest in adult coloring pages these days, I am thinking this could be a possible start for one. It was extremely easy to do, it just took quite awhile. So, what do you think?… Continue Reading

Book Tangling

This was fun to do and it felt a little wrong to do! I received this beautiful new book in the mail. It has a lot of watercolor pages like this – blank of photos, some pretty color washes, and maybe a little texture here and there. I picked out a nice blank-ish page and… Continue Reading

This is a small piece of scrapbook paper I had left over, about 5″ x 4″. I made some wonky, non-straight string lines with my pen, and started… Continue Reading

Circle Stacking


Circle stacking is different than stacking circles. Hahahaha! And I have done those before. This is an idea developed by Italian tangler Simona Arian Cordara. You start with a circle, then lay in your string. Next add tangles. Shade, admire, reflect. I made this circle stack on a page in one of my smash books…. Continue Reading

Dylusions All Boxed Up


This was a fun piece to create! Built on a 5″ x 7″ sheet of bristol vellum, I used Dylusions Paints for the color. Postbox Red, Squeezed Orange, and Lemon Zest. Then I added a whole lot of All Boxed Up, with some printemps and footlites. Took me about 15 minutes to tangle this! This… Continue Reading

Mandala and a Template


I love working on mandalas. And if you have some great templates to work with, they are really easy and fun to create. My friend Genevieve Crabe has a group of templates on her blog that you can download and use – for FREE! Here is a link to her blog Tangle Harmony and the… Continue Reading

Diva Dance and Dylusions


This was a quick and fun piece to create. The background colors are the new Dylusions Paints. They go on just like acrylic paints and are permanent when dry. Their bright, vivid colors match the Dylusions Ink Sprays. I used three colors – lemon zest, fresh lime, and calypso teal. Then I added a little… Continue Reading
