This week Laura had one more guest challenge. This week it is a team challengers Juliette and Kellie. They invite us to use tangles that remind us of season change and/or use cozy tangles. (I had a bit of a hard time listening to their podcast: Tanglepod because I couldn’t seem to get the volume loud enough, even with headphones on. I may have to give them another try sometime.)
I began thinking about what tangles seemed cozy to me. I immediately thought of Crescent Moon. Then I looked through my notebook of tangles and saw Ahhh! That is most definitely a tangle that makes me think of cozy because it reminds me of snow. I like to be all warm and cozy inside watching the snow through the window.
I like it when it is cold enough to lean back on a pillow and cover up with a blanket. Shattuck reminds me of a blanket and Drupe reminds me of a pillow.
I started with the four dots and lines for the frame but decided against drawing a string and just went free styling. First I drew Drupe and then added Shattuck. From there I added Ahhh, as if looking out a window.
Here’s the tile before shading.
I used a little 6B pencil to get some darkness but I didn’t smudge my shading well enough. I really need to get some new blending stumps; the ones I have just aren’t working very well. I need some pointier tortillions.
Looking at the tile now, the whole thing kind of looks like a pillow.
Thanks for stopping by. And a huge thanks to any of you kind people that take the time to leave a comment, they are most appreciated!!!
Until next time, God bless,

I’m glad to hear that I wasn’t the only one who couldn’t listen to the podcast. I turned up the volume as much as I could, but it was too difficult so I gave up. I didn’t want to say anything since I thought it was just my computer.
I could only grasp “cozy” as it seems you did as well. Your idea of cozy is lovely as is your tile!
I think the volume trouble is because of the distance they are to their microphone, as there were times that someone would move and I could hear a bit better for a brief moment. I didn’t really want to say anything at first but I know that I’d want to know if it were me, so I included it here.
I’m looking forward to the weather here next week when we are no longer in the 90’s and hopefully have some “cozy” weather approaching.
Thanks for your sweet comment. (I hope you see this.)
I think you might win the prize for the coziest tangle tile so far. I mean, there are others that are certainly lovely and nice, but I think you’ve captured “cozy” the best. Either that, or we share the same vision of “cozy”.
I see a lovely tile, not a pillow at all 🙂
