Day Two Hundred and Two

A few waves to give us an ocean feel today and some tentacles to remind us of the depths of the ocean and the creatures that lurk there :)

Day Two Hundred and One

A new pattern I have called "Burbs" ... it really reminds me of the top of those Monopoly houses now that I am looking at it.

Day Two Hundred!

 Day Two Hundred

Wow, can you believe it!  Two Hundred daily One Tangles :)

This time I have used Huggins covering the whole tile area.  To add interest and highlight the weaving of the pattern, I have used other tangles, using Huggins as the "string line".   You can do this with a lot of other patterns also.
 No String Line as I am using the pattern as the string line.

Thanks for coming on this journey with me ... I love to read your comments ... Jane xx

Day One Hundred & Ninety Eight

 Day One Hundred and Ninety Eight

I loved doing this tangle ... lots of grid based tangles to look at
 String Line ..  I was thinking fan palm or fanned flower

Day One Hundred & Ninety Seven

 Day One Hundred and Ninety Seven

I love to crochet and I decided to use some crochet flower patterns as tangle patterns ... aren't they cute.  I think I will use these quite a bit in my Field of Flowers tangles.  Actually, any crochet chart patterns would be able to be used in this way.
No String line as I have just placed random flowers all over the tile.  So here is the Side by Side  ... Enjoy

Day One Hundred & Ninety Six

 Day One Hundred and Ninety Six

The String Line for this is two squares on the tile.   I have drawn a simplified version of my pattern "Strata" in the middle, Circles/Bubbles in the next section and then Nested Feathers JM in the outside border. Nested Feathers is my variation of Finery for use as a border pattern.

You can purchase my pattern books One Tangle Volume I, II and III on my website as a digital PDF downloadable file.  http://janemonkstudio.com/

Day One Hundred & Ninety Five

 Day One Hundred & Ninety Five

Revisiting the Garden Path.
 String line.  The 'nzeppel variation is where I draw the grid line with pencil and only put the rounded fill bits in ink. This makes the flagstones float.

Day One Hundred & Ninety Four



 Day One Hundred & Ninety Four

Some time ago Maria Thomas of Zentangle did a tile that I fell in love with, just a simple tangle ... this is my rendition.

String Line ... just working on one side of the tile

Day 184 to 193

 Day One Hundred & Eighty Four
Circles again.
 Day One Hundred & Eight Five
More Circles with grids
 Day One Hundred & Eight Six
Marking out points on the circle to make flower patterns.  Just done free hand - no measuring other than by eye.
 Day One Hundred & Eight Seven
More points on the circle = more leaves.
 Day One Hundred & Eighty Eight
Flowers and Hurdles
 Day One Hundred & Eighty Nine
Yes, more circles
 Day One Hundred & Ninety
I decided to do a grid on a circle to draw 'Nzeppel, I really like it, it would make a great background. Lots of potential with this idea.
 Day One Hundred & Ninety One
A little heart and some colour.
 Day One Hundred & Ninety Two
I have been working on colouring pages and thought you might like to see a little snippet as a daily tangle.
Day One Hundred & Ninety Three
I started with my Stairs tangle then decided to do something different by adding in a border pattern, and some Betweed and Shattuck.  I would have done more in the background but ran out of time.





Tomorrow I will be back to daily postings for One Tangle.   Thanks for stopping by.  I hope everyone had a good holiday season break.   Although I mostly did one tangle a day, some days I just worked on my larger tangle projects I am doing at the moment.  It was amazing to reach the half way mark of this One Tangle journey ... I hope you can join me for the rest of the year :)  Happy Tangling....Jane xx

Hi everyone ...
