More snow so more tiles!

Maria writes:

We have received yet another blessing of snow.

(Our outdoor lawn furniture . . . now totally covered!)

As beautiful as this bounty makes everything appear outside . . .

. . . we've been spending more time inside - tangling of course!

Here are a few from Molly and me. The first one I did a while ago. One of our lovely CZTs from The Netherlands gifted me with this (antique?) Dutch Button. I love most things antique, and this was something I could wear! After looking at it up close, I saw the tangles developing in my mind. When you see something such as this, you need not represent it precisely, but take inspiration from it.

If you look closely at my tangled "button" it is not an accurate representation of the piece. But it still might remind you of a Dutch Button.

So take inspiration from things of beauty and don't fret about exact representation. Make it yours. Delight in the transformation from image to tangle.

Enjoy the tiles!

We loved reading your comments on our previous blog. Thank you one and all!

Do you watch the television show Empire? One of the main characters Cookie had a dress on that was covered in tangles.

How cool is that! I have not seen it, but I'll go hunting!

Oh Maria and Molly, your photos and tiles look beautiful. I have just been outside gardening in the heat and hoping it rains soon as the plants are dry and brittle. It's time for a cool drink in the shade......perhaps something sparkly!

There is inspiration in the snow, too. Those dark tree trunks and branches (ink) against the white (paper).
Love the tiles.
