Day 253 or what to do with a major goof!

    I had a few minutes this afternoon while supper cooked and I thought I would work on the New to Me challenge.  This is challenge #36 by Suzy Mosh.  I love these because it forces me to use a tangle or two that I just put in my notebook and conveniently forgot.
    I decided to do my tile in blue pen.  Just to be different.  Looking through the notebook, I found the tangle y-flip by Helen Williams.  I loved the look, but something about those wazy lines freak me out.  But I decided to give it a go anyway.  I drew my wavy lines across the bottom and proceeded.  Proceeded all wrong that is.  It was not even close.  Since I draw my tiles in my sketch book, throwing it away was out of the question - there was a tile on the top of the page I liked.  What to do!!?  Take a blue marker and cover it in a sea of blue.
    Then I went over to Helen's site and studied her step-outs.  Really hard.  I decided on taking a white gel pen and trying it again.  This time I think I got it.  As my confidence grew I ventured out into the white space.  I added a bit of Margaret Bremner's "yoga" to the side and voila!  I did it.  Now no one knows what sort of mess lies beneath the deep blue sea . . . 

     Thanks for dropping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!


  1. Congratulations on making a mistake and incorporating it into your design--even if you did blue it out. Nice tile! Thanks for being part of the TNTM challenge this week!

  2. That is why it is called the deep blue sea, all sorts of stuff is at the bottom. I love your blue tile


Thank you for leaving me some sunshine! Your comments make my day!
