19th-21st of July and a mixed media ATC

Summertangles 2018 is still going on... On the 19th Chainlea (Norma Burnell) was entering the stage. I haven´t tried Chainlea since I first learned it.  I did like the pattern but I didn´t like the way my Chainlea came out at that time. But now I found a wonderful pattern with a lots of possibilities! On the 20th Quérre (Genvieve Crabe) is a fun geometrical pattern. On the 21st we should add some color. Since I haven´t tried (but intended too) Ilac (Ria Matheussen) I went for this, but I wanted to do something different in my calendar. Yesterday I found some pretty tissues in a cheap store, and I glued them on todays date. Then I started to play with Ilac and also added one more Quérre in the background and some Printemps. I liked the way this went!

Then I finished an ATC in the same direction (mixed-media style):

This is influenced by art I do in my studio. Before this, tangling influenced my art and now my artwork influences my tangling! This is fun I think! the patterns used: Sand Swirl (Karry Heun), Slinky (Jennifer Hohensteiner) and Wud (Joni Feddersen).
