I put out last week's challenge very sure that in the midst of this "most wonderful time of the year", the most passionate of tanglers would respond - and here they are!
Joan Delony said that she is taking time to tangle everyday because it "keeps her sane". Look at these Christmas treats from her:
After Joan sent the third tile, I told her that she could have her own greeting card company! Her lettering has a happy feel and she has a delicate touch with her pen. Just lovely.
Sue Agnew said that she used this challenge as an opportunity to use one of her favorite grid-based tangles, Dex. She said, "First I imagined a grid, with the circles being transparent and showing the grid through, if that makes sense. It didn't come out looking like I'd expected (looks like soccer balls), so then I tried showing the entire grid with opaque holiday garlands in front of it."
She also went on to say that, "Holiday Garland was much easier once I realized that you don't have to stack the circles diagonally- you can stack them vertically/horizontally and then just connect them diagonally!"
Now this is exciting - the next tile is from Annmarie, a talented tangler from the Netherlands.
A You can click here to see this tile posted on her blog. She has a wonderful collection of work and it's an honor to have her join us.
Sue Jacobs said that she "ran with the ornament idea" and created a sampler of tangles. She had fun creating this -
What a fun and festive tile it is! The stippled background makes the tangled ornaments really stand out and see the holly popping through - what a treat.
A very warm welcome to Sue Green. She said that she loved how the "1940/50's Christmas Ornaments so jumped right in with them."
What a happy thought - that they just jumped right into her tangles. It's such a colorful treat.
As a special treat, I am going to send a little some thing to all five holiday tanglers this week.
