'Drawings' tangle
'Drawings' (pronounced dra-wings) was just the challenge I needed to get me drawing again. I've been blessed with so many family and friends that are helping me deal with my husband's death. My kids check in on me often and keep me involved in the grandkid'...

Color Escapes colored pencils
I have a new toy to play with. I blindly ordered the brand new Color Escapes premium colored pencils from Crayola.  I know what you are thinking, "Crayola, that's for kids!" Well, these are definitely a step above the usual school supplies. I used them on t...

Tangled Owls again
Tangled Owls are such fun to do. If you have been following my blog you will remember the owls I did last year. These are made with recycled materials - as I'm sure you can see, empty toilet paper rolls. All you need to do is push in one of the ends to make...

Tagh tangleations
Tagh is a wonderful, basic tangle pattern. It starts out very simply, with simple scalloped lines. You can leave it at that or add all sorts of tangleations. This weekend I started to play with it. I had no idea where I would go with it so I started with a ...

Antique Oshun
Trying out two tangles here that I haven't used before.  I've admired them but somehow never put them in tiles before now. Antique comes from Kathy Barringer and Oshun comes from Sandy Steen Bartholomew. While it's fun to be random, sometimes I want things ...

Traveling tangles with Storm VandeWerken
Traveling tangles is a fun project that began on Facebook. One person begins a tile and then mails it to another tangler who then completes the tile. It's really interesting to see what happens to the tiles you begin and challenging to get a partially compl...

Getting ready to post again
It's been over a month since I last posted. Last month life was going on as normal (or as normal as it was for me). I was creating art and taking care of my husband with his health issues. We celebrated Thanksgiving with the whole family at our house. Then ...

Folded Star
Time to start the ornaments! I can't believe we are into the Holiday season already. It's been rather stressful around my home so I was glad to finally have a chance to sit down to tangle on an ornament. I used the folded star design that fellow CZT Cris Le...

Flux/Nzeppel
Sometimes the simplest combinations of tangles can be the most effective. Here there are only two tangles used; Flux and Nzeppel. A tan Renaissance tile is the base and all the tangles were done with a brown Micron. I drew a simple string that reminded me o...

Fall foilage
It's time for leaf peeping again. Time to hop in the car and head off to the wooded areas where the leaves are turning glorious colors. In my case, that may be simply a trip to a local forest preserve where the colors are equally beautiful. I did the zendal...

Dreamcatcher
This zendala uses a tangle called Dreamcatcher. It's a simple tangle from Daniel Lamothe that can be found  here . Once you have the basic pattern done you have many ways to add any sort of tangles within. I used Bumper and Aviary to fill my Dreamcatcher. F...
