I also had a lot of fun this past week-end with Judy, at Creative Doodling's celtic knot challenge. This was a super template. I tangled the knot, then found a quote from a scrapbooking book I had to put in the middle. The really neat thing about this knot is that it's so versatile. I can see using it to do frames for photos, scrapbook pages . . . lots of uses.
Finally, the Diva had a challenge for us. The first of each month she randomly chooses a tangle for us to focus on. This month the choice was none other than Erin's (the Bright Owl) own tangle - Socc. I love this tangle! It is loads of fun and adds so much to a piece. I grabbed a string from Tangle Patterns and then just played around - nothing special.
While playing, I became inspired as often is the case when I free my mind to just drawing without a purpose. A while back, I watched a youtube video of a Suzanne McNeill event. She featured several tangle artists telling how they used tangles in various ways. One that absolutely fascinated me was these "continuous line" people. I fell in immediate love! You draw the entire person without picking up the pen - yes, it is hard. I really have to think or I get all jumbled up. Then you give them personality with tangles. Socc just had to be a head of unruly hair! Isn't she adorable? Get ready for some more of these gals.
