Random Artful Tuesday

I'm a day early and apparently I had a wee bit of time on my hands this week 'cuz look at all I got done tangling! Woo! My kinda week! I did a few 'random' tangles, playing with the random number generator, then pulling that number from Linda's List of Official Tangle Patterns. Less thinking that way and more tangling getting done. Plus I've found that's a great way to learn new tangles, practice ones that are a little more difficult or 'disagreeable', and then something would strike me as a good tangle for a certain spot and random would go out the window. Haha--so long as we're having fun, that's all that really matters, am I right?? So here is this week's collection-I call it-When Bug's at Camp All Day, Mom Gets to Tangle Play! Hee hee hee....

Bumpers, Crescent Moon, Dyon, Echoism, Fescu, Jetties--almost alphabetical!

 Cruffle, Verve, Paradox, Hollibaugh, Tipple, and Ixorus

A wee bitty tangle I sent to my honey, Tangled Up in Love--can you see the heart? I need to get better shots with my camera, trying to zoom in too much but this was already off in the mail, so....squint when you look at it, it helps! LOL
Nzepple, Hypnotic, Hollibaugh

This was another random tangle: Umble, Ibex, Isochar, Oof, Poke Leaf, and Bronx Cheer

And this eye ball twisting dealio is my first ZENDALA!!! I've been enjoying seeing some other tangle friends' zendala creations and, well, had to give it a shot. This is the Bright Owl's Weekly Zendala Challenge #15. I had so much fun with this (even though it almost hurts your eyes if you look at it too long!) I'm definitely gonna try a few more of these!

  1. Great work on all the tiles. Isn't it fun to have "free" time? I love the idea of a random number to stimulate creativity. Is this an on line ap?

    1. Yep-go to: You can enter your own range and it'll pick numbers for you within the given range. Now...someday when I have all eight million "unofficial" tangle patterns organized and numbered, this could be even more fun...or not! LOL

  2. hahaha! you've been super busy! and what wonderful results you got - i need to try that random number thing!

  3. I agree that this weeks Zendala is a bit tough on the eyes. Funny how sometimes they work out that way! I love what you did with yours and think you picked great tangles. Thanks for taking the Dare!

  4. The way you laid down the lines on your zendala give such a feeling of texture that I would love to run my fingers across it but then it would smudge so it is a good thing I am at a virtual distance!

    1. Haha LeeAnn,
      My boxer mix licked the top tangle and blurred it just a little--nothing is safe in this house! LOL
