Something new

Today I wanted to try something I haven´t tried before. As I was trying Sandy Steen Bartholomew´s pattern Oshun I also wanted to try her app "Tangle Library". I do like her book "Yoga for your Brain" which I bought more than a year ago. It might look a little too simple at the first sight, but there are a loots of goodies in there and I have had much fun with it.  So I got the app for my iPhone! To be useful to me I soon found out that I had to buy some more pack of pattern inside the app, since all the patterns that came with it were the same as in the book. I didn´t like that at first but then I told myself to give it a round. Tangle library is very easy to handle. The step-outs are good, but maybe the most important thing is that this app gives me a chance to organize my patterns since there is a pretty good scanner in it and it is possible to add tags and information about the patterns I add to the photo-library in the app. 

Yesterday I sat tangling in the car (not driving!) and tried  2 patterns I had not used before. Ceil (Sandy Steen Bartholomew, from now I write SSB) and Slalom (Sandra Strait). Ceil I had in the app and Slalom I found at Tanglepattern.com. When I had practiced in my journal I scanned my work in the app and there I have them very easy to look at and it is easy to bring the patterns with me whereever I go as I usually have my phone with me! Here is my tile for today using Sandys tool:



I used string 172. Oshun (SSB) and Florz is also there. This time I didn´t forget the befor-shading-pic! Here it is:



I am not a friend of using apps for everything. But sometimes I admit it makes things easier in one way or another. I think I will use the Tangle Library when I am travelling, when I am on vacation, when I am in the doctor´s or dentist´s vaitingroom or some place else where I won´t carry my books and stuff around with me.

Thanks for the pic before and after shadowing. It is so nice to see how the tile really becomes more beautiful trough shadows!!!
I am a bit jealous that you can draw in the car, in the docter's waiting room etc... I think an I Phone is wonderful in that case but for me it is impossible, I need to be in a quiet neighbourhood.
P.S. I've just posted an article with the results of our collaboration on my website.
Kind regards and again thank you.
Ihope your "cold" is cured and I wish you a week with lots of tanglepleasure
