I am so bad about making a judgement based on first impressions. I know I shouldn't. But I quite often always do. Fortunately, I find myself willing to change my opinion when I have to. Take for example the monotangle challenge from Mindful-Creations. We had to use the tangle "cracked". Uh. My first reaction was . . . well, I didn't want to. It didn't appeal to me. But I forced myself and voila! I like the tile. It still may not be a tangle I often use, but I really like the tile. I used a stencil to draw the butterfly and then a gray pen for the outside of the stencil.
The Every Inchie Monday word this week was gray. With the rain we have had as of late, perhaps I should have gone outside and taken a picture of the sky. Instead I pulled out some shading markers I purchased a while back and went to work. I tangled an area on a piece of white paper with one of my favorite tangles, verve. Then I colored the tangle using the marker. Last I grabbed my trusty one inch paper punch and found an area I liked. There you go! Gray in an inch!
