Diva's challenge this past Monday was to use a tangle created by one of my absolute favorite artists, LeeAnn. Her work is beyond awesome. This tangle, "Tuxedo", gave me a bit of a fit at first but once I found my rhythm it seemed to go smoother. I did have a hard time deciding what string to use. Finally I just "stretched" it across the page and added some other tangles underneath it. I did it on an ATC sized card because I had one handy.
Mindful-Creations for the Monotangle Adventure, gave me a real challenge this week. Monotangles, using only one tangle, is typically for me a very mindless, relaxing process. The tangle "W2" is anything but. I have to repeat "over under" all through the process and even then may mess up. Simply put, I struggle. I love the woven look and would love to use it more, but it is work for me. I kept this tile very simple. I figured that if I did it would work better.
"What are these?" she asked.
I was sort of surprised she asked about such simple words, but I responded with the answer - "record player".
She gave me an "I know that" look and said "Yes, but what is it?"
Oh my, I tried to explain ancient technology and then wondered if I should creep off to find a rocking chair! And for those of you who don't remember, I am not going to tell you - use your search engine and please don't let on to me you don't know. My rocker is calling.
Hope you have a wonderful week! My week is going to be filled with test prep. I will be glad when our state testing for my room is over.
