New Tangle Pattern: Seahorse

New Tangle Pattern: Seahorse

seahorse inspiration

At the end of a recent class, Allison brought out this piece of dried grass? weed? that she thought was cool, and she wanted to tangle it. Allison, Barbara and I flipped our completed tiles over to recreate the shape.

I explained how to deconstruct a pattern, and we practiced. Since Allison brought the inspiration, Barbara and I agreed she should name it. New Tangle Pattern: Seahorse, was born! As you make the little fluffies, draw lightly, starting from the stem and sweeping up. If you draw down to the stem, the look is totally different.

500 Tangled Art Pieces

So I uploaded several submissions for the upcoming book 500 Tangled Art Pieces by Beckah Krahula, due out in November. Keep your fingers crossed that one of them is accepted!

I finally got a professional scan of the 48 x 48 inch canvas I painted a few years ago. I tangled for three straight days with Sharpie Oil Paint Pens and oil paint. Next to it is the TV tray table I use in my living room.

This purse on the left was a thrift shop find that I decorated using an Indenti-pen, and the wristlet is my everyday purse, a $7 find at Walmart!
