Day 76: 365 Daily Project - Can you Ear me?

Tangles: Cyme, Striping with enhancers: Auras & Perfs

So here is my somewhat unsuccessful  attempt at some shrinky dink earrings made from a plastic tomato container.  They just didn't quite flatten out as much as I wanted to - even with all the smashing I tried to do.  I didn't have any flat plastic but all the posts I saw on the internet said you didn't have to start with a flat piece.  They mostly flattened but not totally. Oh well!  I would like to try some more homemade shrinky dinks in the future - I just need to get some good plastic.

Day 75: 365 Daily Project - Chalk it up!

Tangle: Arukas

Oh how I wish I already had the chalkboard wall already done in my new studio/office that I plan to paint soon, but alas this suggestion came too early for the wall.  So next best thing is using a white charcoal pencil on a black tile because I don't seem to have any chalk.  I also don't really have good sidewalks to tangle on if I had chalk anyway.  I live in a historic neighborhood with brick sidewalks so that wasn't an option.  If you haven't used a white charcoal pencil it really kind of feels like chalk as it moves across the paper. I decided to go with a monotangle of arukas.  I had planned to completely fill in the tile but decided to stop just short of filling it because I thought it looked cool.

Day 74: 365 Daily Project - Going Global

Tangles: On Target, Da Deal, Bales, Tortuca, Ving, Tipple

I did not quite follow the suggestion today which was to go tangle somewhere else - not enough time tonight.  Sorry!  So instead I did the Diva's Challenge to use a Globular string.  Instead of physically traveling today the globular string was my way of traveling.  I used a renaissance tile and referenced the grid section of my trusty binder of tangles. I like the arrangement of the tangles with each creating a border.  A little shading around the outside and voila!
