Then to make the week even sweeter - I just read an e-mail from my last year's student teacher. She has a job! I am so thankful because she is a dynamite person. Hope you are reading this, my friend and lots of luck. There is a lucky bunch of fourth graders out there!
The Diva this week asked us to use the tangle Brayd for our challenge. Not one I have spent much time with after putting it into my tangle notebook. So I pulled out my sketchpad to play a bit with it. It looked okay, but not quite right. So I went back to Michelle Beauchamp's site to see the directions again. I read it a bit more carefully and saw that she compared the strokes to Yincut. I had an "aha" moment and things came together.
My first tile was to keep it simple. I pulled out a piece of paper I had watercolored on and just focused on getting it right. I added some mysst, pokeleaf, and twistee. It became a rainforest.
Hope your week is going great and filled with lots of blessings! Also good luck to you, Alice, on becoming a CZT this week-end. I am very envious and want you to post all about it!
