Well Well Who Tangle Pattern Experimentation

Some pattern play from this week:

Well Well Who going solo........
Then playing with others...........



And layered with the addition of some simple patterns. I prefer the plain versions, I think.
Have a great week! Me.........I am just trying to contain myself until Game of Thrones final season begins in a few days!!!!! hx

Hey there........SISTAR!

A quick one for today - this week I had some fun playing with the tangle pattern Sistar, here is my take on it :) Have a great weekend!

What I've been Ratoon-ing

Hello, all!! Bet you're surprised to hear from me after 4 months of radio silence :)
Firstly, thank you to all of the people who took the time to send me a message checking in. I appreciate you!
Back in November John fractured his leg motorbike riding and, in between acting as his chauffeur and carer (read drink and food maker and carrier of ALL the STUFF), I also had to pick up the slack on the farm. A couple months later, he was well on the mend and, well, I just didn't feel like drawing. My lack of interest was partly due to the intensity of the prior months, but was also caused by some general disenchantment, I guess.
I've still been doing the creative thing.......mostly sewing (upcycling 2nd hand clothes) and designing/planning our house reno. We've waited almost 16 years to renovate the kitchen/bathroom/laundry end of our house and 2019 is going to be THE YEAR. Excited!!!
Yesterday the drawing gene awoke so I cruised around online to see if there had been any ne…

The month that was.......

The past month.......wow, just.....wow! It has been a crazy one with a lot of big emotional highs and low lows all packed into a few short weeks - if you just want to see my latest drawing, scroll down to the bottom of this post.  Otherwise here's how it went........ 
It all began innocently enough with me setting a deadline to get my new Digital Tangle Journals ready for release before we left for our Tassie holiday on 2nd October - all was going well UNTIL......
September 19: Miss Jersey's calf is due.
September 20: Miss Jersey is now overdue.
September 22: I accidentally delete the online folder location of all of my blog images......DISASTER! This means going through all of my blog entries over the past 6 year, locating and re-uploading every image. A huge job that needed to be done asap. So between finishing the journals, I was uploading, uploading and still no calf.
September 24: The new Digital Tangle Journals are released - a big thank you to the great response I had on t…

What is a Digital Tangle Journal?

My Digital Tangle Journals will be going up for sale tomorow!! I'm excited! Since I introduced the project on the blog a couple of weeks ago, I've had a lot of questions - particularly "What is a Digitial Tangle Journal?" and "How do you use them?" So....
I have always drawn in Journals, I love that they record my progression. They show the successes and failures and are a great source of new ideas or inspiration when I look through them. It's a chronological treasure trove stored in a convenient package on my bookshelf. I also love my pattern reference of 2" swatches stored in a binder. These tools are the backbone of my drawing workflow and organisation.

So, why digital drawing? I experimented on my iPad a few years ago and it really wasn't for me - I didn't have the fine control that I like in my drawings so that was that...until early this year when a shoulder injury severely limited the amount of time I could sit at my desk drawing and…

Oh, the stupidity........

Well.........! You may have noticed that instead of images in blog posts there is a lot of this on the website right now:

Yes, hmmmm........ that's because someone incredibly stupid (I'm not going to name names, but yeah, it was me!) deleted the google blogger album online. I have searched everywhere, gotten online chat help from google, and as it was not in photos, but instead was located in the album archives it does not seem to be recoverable. So, yeah, 1000's of images and 6 years of uploads. Urrgh. 
Really, after the initial freak-out, I just have to laugh at my own stupidity. What else can I do?
I do have all of the images on my computer and in back-up copies, but it will be a process of re-uploading everything to the web/blogger, so it is going to take a little bit of time. I have decided to just look at it as an opportunity for reorganisation of my filing system. Yeah, because I have all the time in the world for that.........hahaha......
Now, for some happier new…
