Tangled Tuesday No. 48

A very Happy Tangled Tuesday to you, Alphabet Salad readers! It’s been a fun week of creativity which included a bunch of new patterns learned, a challenge completed, AND a finished project all wrapped up, so let’s get this tangling show on the road!

New Tangles

This week I cracked open my brand new Moleskine Sketchbook in vibrant RED (Volume 6 in my series of tangle practice sketchbooks) and learned Pea-Fea, Graancirkel, JJ, Gottago, Facets, Gord, Snag, and Ovy, all from TanglePatterns.com.

I also learned All Boxed Up from The Creator’s Leaf so that I could participate in The Diva’s Challenge this week.

Nothing at the moment, because…

Finished Projects

…I (finally) finished my latest piece! It’s another Zendala, which I started a few weeks ago and have been tackling a bit at a time until last night when I wrapped it up.

Unfortunately the paper got a little scratched-up (you can see the marks if you look closely at the top of the circle), as I made the mistake of leaving it on my art desk with the door to the room open… and one of the cats went exploring. Ah, well – live and learn!

I also completed The Diva’s Challenge, which was a UMT (Use My Tangle) this week featuring All Boxed Up by Alice Hendon. Knowing that there was no WAY I’d make all the lines perfect, I decided to go the imperfect route right from the start with a wavy string and curved grid. Here’s the end result of my efforts.
