Just came back inspired by the zenAgain conference!  I learned new tangles and also how to take a tangle I love in new directions. Stay tuned for updates based on the conference!

For this week, I focused on a simple but effective tangle, Ahh.  You can learn how to do it here.  I wanted a light and airy effect so I did not shadow it here but the example above will show you how to shadow it.  Have fun with it!

Tangle of the Week Nov 5 2016: BB

This week's tangle is called BB.  It is an original tangle from Maria and Rick.  At first I was not impressed with it but after I actually drew it I liked it.  Moral of the story: Always try the tangle before deciding on whether or not you like it.

The tangle is demonstrated on Sandy Bartholomew's blog, Beez in the Belfry.  It is a fun blog to visit with lots of step outs for tangles.

BB is the tangle arching over the bottom right hand corner of the tile, over Tipple.
