Last week I mentioned that I was probably going to do one of the strings from the catch up week after week 4 so that I could work on tangling every day rather than a lot in one day. Well, I decided that was a really good idea.
Alice did provide seven strings. I think the intention was to ensure that those that were already caught up would have something to do each day. I looked through the seven strings provided and picked one. I wish that I’d have scanned it before I began tangling but atlas, I did not. But here is the scan of my tangled tile marked with the string.Here is the scanned tile without the string marked.
I used Pepper, Hurry, Echoism, and Ynix and I still don’t know how to pronounce that last one.
We actually had a bit of sunshine yesterday and I got the tangling done while it was out, so I was able to get a picture in natural light.
The cats were quite interested in what I was doing.
I then took it back inside to do some shading. Here is the scan of the shaded tile.
It always looks so much better smaller, so that you can see fewer of the imperfections.
Here are the pictures I took outside. I had to wait a bit for some clouds to pass and of course, the cats were still interested.
I really liked running Ynix up the right side border. It looks a bit more shaded in person. I’m really pleased with how this one turned out. Echoism was a bit small in the bottom section, so the inner aura didn’t turn out very good, but I think it contrasted nicely with the opposite blackening on the other part.
At first I thought the upper loop on the tile was too big to use for the center of Pepper but I think it turned out quite nicely. I’m not sure what I think of the middle loop with Hurry in it. I tried to do some under shadow with it. Overall, I like how this one turned out.
I just realized that the Echoism and Ynix sections kind of resemble a cat. With Ynix being the tail.
Next week I’ll be back with week 7 of the Zen-Untangled Project. I’m familiar with most of the tangles for week 7 but I’m not sure how many of them I already have stepouts made for.
Well, I’m going to run for now. Thanks for stopping by. I hope these inspired you in some way.
Until next time, God bless,
