Here's another B tangle. I found some more B tangles, so there will be more B postings in this series. Will I ever make it to C???
Uses: Barbed wire; Black-eyed peas; Bilt; Box spirals; Betweed; Basketweave; Beadlines; Beelight

Roller Coaster

I've finished one last B tangle and have been working on tangles starting with C but haven't gotten them scanned yet. They will be posted later this week. Here's a tangle I did a few weeks ago. I think I'll name this creation Roller Coaster, which it sort of resembles. Well, at least to my eye.

Tangles used: Strata, Stoic, Bubbles and one I forgot the name of.

Seeing double

Late last year, I was experimenting with making ornaments and Christmas cards using Zentangles. I made a design that I liked, then copied it and colored it. Below are the results.

Tangles used: Betweed; Beadlines; BB, and one I don't know the name of.

I didn't use these designs for anything. They've just been sitting in my "finished" folder. Thought I'd share them.

Mostly B

 Back to the B's. This is mostly B-tangles. It uses Bubbles and another tangle I cannot find the name of.  When I started doing these, I got myself a small spiral bound sketch pad - the kind made to be very portable - and started putting tangles in it that I liked. Sometimes, I forgot to put in the name. The background "webbing" is one of those. I did put some shading in this one, but it doesn't seem to have shown up on the scan. Perhaps I need to make the shading more obvious.

Last A

I finally finished a tangle that I can post. This one came out OK. Anyone know a good place to learn how to do shading??? Guess I should learn how to do the patterns first, but I love looking at the ones that have shading. This pattern was made with all A tangles.

Antidots, Ahh, Arc Flower, Ash leaf, Afterglo, Arrowheads and Ambler used.

This A gets a D

I finally finished another tangle - using A's.

This one uses Afterglo, Arc Flower, Arrowheads, and Antidots

I'm not to fond of this one - it looks unbalanced to me. But, it does use some Tangles that I have not used very often.

Busy days

Sorry I haven't posted any new tangles. I've been busy with some other things (insert EQ2 here.) AND making some cards. I have lots of birthdays coming up in March. I've been using a technique I learned years ago, but just started do more of called Iris Folding. Guess I should have scanned the cards I made and sent already (Valentines)  - but I didn't. Just wanted to get them in the mail on time. I'll try to remember to scan any new ones I make and post them at a later date.

Here's B

I did this B tangle, but I still want to go back and do more with A. After I started this B, I decided to try to use all the A tangles. So, here's B, but I'll get back to A soon.

This uses BarberPole, BB, and Beadlines.
