crochet craft projects New project - No Fuss Fish by Eden Reborn
A family member gave me a link for this project. It is not like I had anything else to do. They were not as easy to make as what it might have seemed.  Probably one of the biggest challenges was using the invisible thread to suspend the finished items.  The...

ZIA, Zentangle® method Alcohol ink wash for a background.
This was a class that I did some time ago that I finally finished the piece.  The class was on different backgrounds so was not as much about the tangles. The process is to wet the paper, and then put the ink on the page.  Then the fun begins.  You then jus...

Just completed a class using Dorian Eng's tangled houses concept.  Was a fun enjoyable class.  Was a challenge getting them together but learned a few things that I will use if I do the class again.  Here are pictures of the different pieces to the house. O...

ZIA, pyrography, Completed cutting board: Burned tangled cow
After 20+ hours I finally finished the cutting board.  Most of the time was spent doing the shading/burning.  Did not realize would take that long.  Probably could have made the striping a little bigger.  That would have cut down on the number that I needed...

Pyrography, Wood Burning, ZIA, Another pyrography project: Cutting board - Cow shaped
Now that I finished the wood cuff, have moved on to the next project.  I bought a couple of wood forms at Michael's a while ago. One is shaped like a turtle and the other is shaped like a cow.  Not sure why I chose to do the cow first.  Maybe is was because...

ZIA, Tangled Wood Cuff: shaded and polished
Finally finished the shading on the wood cuff that I was working on.  It is difficult to get a picture of the whole thing.  I used the burner for the shading.  It is a triangular shaped nib that is for shading.  I used the edge of it for the darker outline....

ZIA© Update on the tangled cuff
Brief post just to show the progress so far. Decided to do the shading with the burner.  This is what I have so far, which is about ¼ of the cuff.  Takes a little time as will put down a little shading, then outline it, and then finish the shading.  The woo...

ZIA, Finally able to get in a little time on pyrography and a new adventure with henna tattoos
This will be a brief post. It has been some time since I have posted anything. Will try to be more diligent. The only new thing is that I have been doing some henna tattoos.  The other is that I finally had a chance to do some burning.  This is the only thi...

Zentangle® method, ZIA, Mistaken Diva challenge: Bales sampler
I looked at the Diva Challenge and for some reason rather than remembering that it was a monotangle of Puf, I thought it was a monotangle of Bales.  Of course I did not go back and check until I had completed my tile. Oh well.  I like Bales as I see it as a...
