Tangled Tuesday No. 84

Since I wasn’t able to make time to write a Tangled Tuesday post last week, I have an absolute a TON of tangling goodness to share with you today… so without further ado, let’s get to it. Hope you enjoy!

New Tangles

Since my previous Tangled Tuesday post I have learned the following new-to-me tangles.

From TanglePatterns.com:

From The Creative World of Eni Oken (Eni Oken, CZT):

From Sue’s tangle trips (Sue Jacobs, CZT):

From Henrike Bratz:

From Lizzie Mayne:

From perfectly4med (Neil Burley):

From Tangle Harmony by Amaryllis Creations (Geneviève Crabe, CZT):

Work in Progress

I finished one more design for my colouring book-to-be (a fairly complicated and time-consuming one, I might add!), bringing my total of complete pages to ten. Slowly but surely!

Finished Projects

I mentioned in my previous post that one of my goals is to incorporate every tangle pattern I learn into at least one finished piece, and that I’d started a 6″ x 6″ ZIA as a “sampler” featuring a number of learned but as yet unused patterns. Here’s the finished piece.

I also brought a little colour into my tangling world, with another 6″ x 6″ ZIA done in white on blue.

Incidentally, while working on this piece I had my first chance to test out my new Faber Castell Trio Sharpener, which has a slot specifically designed for coloured, non-graphite pencils.

Up until recently I had no idea that coloured pencils required their own special sharpener (though I suppose I should have, since every time I tried to sharpen them in a regular one they tended to disintegrate!), but let me tell you, it makes all the difference in the world. If you ever work with coloured pencils I highly recommend picking up one of these (or similar) sharpeners – you won’t regret it!


Since my previous Tangled Tuesday post I have completed the following tangle challenges.
