Early on Thursday. Lots to Share.

It's only Thursday, but I have so much to share that I thought I would jump in early this week. Now that I am finally retired, you may have to look at more "stuff" from me!

Roy's Adventures in Monotangle from Mindful Creations this week is Shard. He thought it would be nice to do some straight lines. Well, I just finished doing some grids and was sort of tired of straight lines, so I had to "bend the rules" a bit:


 Here are a few of those grids that I worked on:



 No ruler used here HAHA!!!
Thought I'd play with different circles.
Sunray
Hopscotch












Jalousie
Knase
'Nzeppel






Beeline
Flukes
Puf
Blankett
Bubbles













 A Yahoo trade was to do ATCs on black. I chose to use some Slicci pens. They work so nicely on black. I then added some white dots with a Faber-Castell Pitt artist pen. Can you see the Inapod there? Then, I sprayed all with Perfect Pearls Mist.


Sundoo




Fengle           Msst         Raindotty
Finally, I wanted to play with my Copic and Spectrum Noirs around some colored pencils. I traced some flower pictures and went from there:






Aura-Leah
Verve













Auraknot
Barberpole
Shattuck


(Can you tell that I am trying to learn the names of the tangles that I do and that I am trying to use new ones all the time?)

    1. Thank you, Eulita. I think I have a lot to learn about using Copic markers. They are so pretty but I'm more used to colored pencils that blend easily.

  4. HA! I looked at yours Annemarie and was surprised to find it very similar looking. I have been trying to let my work "breathe" a little. Yes, I am really enjoying being retired. Should have done it long ago!
