This week I decided to do the prompt from Today’s Tangles: Keeping it Classic #TTKICPrompt082619 which was to round out the square created by the corner dots and then draw a ‘z’ to section it off.
Of the couple dozen tangles given to select from, I chose Knightsbridge, Cadent, Florz, and Striping (top to bottom on the tile). Unfortunately I made a few lines that were opportunities for creativity. And I was so focused on covering up those bits that I jumped right in with some shading and forgot to take a pre-shaded picture. Oh well.
So here is the scanned finished piece.
My light that I use for my tangling was not charged and I was doing a lot of this with limited light. Also my microns were nearly all dried up . . . I guess I’m going to need to get another set.
Here is a picture I took of the tile in natural light. It’s been overcast most of the day, so that there is any sun at all is a plus.
Which is your favorite tangle?
Thanks for stopping by,
Once again I participated with Today’s Tangles: Keeping it Basic prompt #TTKICPrompt072219. She suggested we “slow down” when tangling this week, which I did and I think my lines were a bit smoother.
Sandy said that the string this week was inspired by 59th Street Bridge song by Simon and Garfunkel. So it is a simple resemblance to a bridge; nothing too difficult this week.
I chose Shattuck and Knightsbridge because they are easy and I remember them without looking them up. Then chose Echoism because I thought it would play nice in the c space at the top. Then comes my oops. I frequently confuse Cubine and Cadent. I think I do that because I learned them about the same time but that is the only reason. I love Cadent and used it so much when I first learned to tangle about 10 years ago. So that is why I’ve included Cadent in my tile, which was not in the tangle pool to choose from.
Here is a scan of my tile before shading.
I really enjoyed tangling this tile. Echoism is one I haven’t used much and enjoyed it. Here’s a picture I took in natural light.
I’d started to lay down some graphite and remembered that I needed to scan and take a picture first. That is why the lines on some of Shattuck on the right are so dark.
I enjoyed shading this one too. Here’s the scan.
Here is the picture I took in natural light, albeit a bit overcast.
I really love how ‘puffy’ the top center part with Echoism looks.
Well, that’s it for me today. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have been encouraged to put pen to paper. If I can do it, anyone can.
Until next time,
