 Well the weather here has been chilly
so today's challenge will hopefully keep us warm!

This week I want you to

tangle something 'quilt'like

 The string and tangles you choose should make us think of a quilt.

Hmmn, we might need a cup of tea or cocoa to go along with this challenge!
Have fun!

challenge #34



I found this week's challenge really fun, it was inspired by a couple of things...

I'm having so much fun with Genevieve's stencil templates so I wanted to try using them again this week on the Knightsbridge monotangle.

The other influence came from M.C. Escher, I'm not exactly sure why
it reminds me of his work but my husband saw it too.
My son suggested that I use a "battlement" edge on this piece
and I think he was spot on!

I am working on a second Knightsbridge monotangle and I hope to have that finished soon.  Like many of you, I found this challenge to be an excellent opportunity to practice my shading.

Thanks to all who participate and share their work and those who are doing the challenges behind the scenes and don't link up.  I look forward to seeing your work and reading your comments every week.

poppies to remember



In Canada we have Remembrance Day on Nov 11th.
It's a day to remember those soldiers who gave their lives for our country
and to thank those who continue to support us.
Given the current global instabilities, I'm also going to remember to be
extra grateful for my family and that we are all safe.
Last year we made up a bunch of these simple poppies.  The tutorial is here.

Well, now that Hallowe'en is over
let's go back to some "technique challenges".
 This week I'd like to challenge you to
tangle a mandala

 I tried my first mandala when we tangled inside a circle.  This was drawn using assorted glass bowls to create the circles.

The wonderful Genevieve Crabe has a short video on drawing mandalas
and how to use her wonderful mandala stencils.  
 I decided to purchase a set and can't wait to try them!
With the stencils as a guide I am eager to try some points and swirls on my mandala.

Whether you use a protractor, soup bowls or Genevieve's stencils,
choose some fun tangle patterns,
take a deep breath, relax and watch what appears before you.

Have a great week!
