Days 200 - 202, Art Attack!

     Finally decided to get going and get this blog posted.  It takes me awhile to do this.  The art work is simple, it is the hassle of scanning and posting . . . However, I really enjoy it.  I have always loved writing.  I even considered another blog to just write on - stories and such from my childhood.  Probably would not be one that had any followers, but even so, it could be fun to do.  Maybe.
     Day 200 - really?!  I am not sure what amazes me more - that I have been doing something creative for 200 days or that there is only 165 days left this year?!!! My first project for the day was to do my inchie.  I did a light bulb for the word energy.  Then I took some clear gel and put it over the light.  Not sure the glitter shows up here but in person it is really sparkly.
      Also today, I worked (a bit ahead, I think, on Diane Clancy's alphabet challenge.  We had to use tangles beginning with the letters UNI.  I used unyun, indy-rella, and nzeppel.  I will use any excuse to use nzeppel.  I love that one.

     The heat is awful here.  Of course, I am the sort of person who thinks 85 or above is sweltering.  Give me mid 70's year round.  But the heat gives me an excuse (like I need one) to sit inside and  create for day 201.  The first tile on my agenda was Diva's challenge - Circus Life.  We had to choose from certain tangles.  I chose tropicana, cack and linq.  Mine is sort of a "three ring circus".
      Then I worked on the Tangle Me Three challenge.  The tangle we had to use was boomerang.  I had fun trying to make variations of this tangle.  I really think I need to do more working and exploring with varying tangles. 
      Day 202 and still quite warm.  Heat indexes of above 100.  Yuck.  Poor Lakota wants to go out and play, but after about 5 minutes he heads for the house.  I follow quite quickly too.  I worked on two tiles today.  One is for Made by Joey and uses just the tangle girdy.  This is a tangle I don't use very much. 
     The last for this "art attack" post was for the New to Me challenge.  A new tangle beginning with the letter D (I chose two).  Then something by tangle artist Sandy Hunter.  When I went to her site to check out her tangle list, I spent a long time playing with all her neat tangles.  She is one major talent!  From her site I used cruffle, pooma, snafoozle, and lola.  Don't you love the names of these things?! 
      All of this was finished up last night, but had to wait til today to post.  I have to twist my brother's arm to scan and email them to me.  Not much of twist really.  He is usually pretty agreeable.  Now I get this finished and get to create something for today!  Can my blog "count" as my create something each day?  Probably, but then I wouldn't have an excuse to draw. 
     Thank you for dropping by and I hope you have a wonderful day,  If you would like, instead of sending me sunshine today, I will take some shade instead!!

  3. I love that you put all the other tangles inside Cack, what an awesome idea. It is 107 degrees here in central Georgia with no breeze and we have nats!

  5. Love all your tiles, nzeppel is a favourite of mine too. I don't scan mine, I take photos with my iPad/iphone and upload direct to Blogger from them. It is so quick and easy.

  10. I love the light bulb, how creative. I can understand wanting to just stay inside and create. It has paid off with so many beautiful works.
