Via Facebook, I take part in the Wacky Tangle Challenge and this week, it was suggested we tangle a favourite quote. Well, I don't really have one but it occurred to me that 'O, what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive' might be rather a good one to choose. I had always thought this was something Shakespeare had written....and I was wrong! Apparently, it is by Walter Scott! I was very glad to know this in case I ever have the chance to share this knowledge in the future...
I only used the first part of the quote and wish that I'd thought to aura all the words so that they stand out as well as 'weave' does....but never mind, I quite like it.
|Tangles used: Cadent, Huggins, Verdigogh, Mist, Florz, Diva Dance, Worms, Ornamato, Quandary, Trumpits, Shattuck and Ditto ..oh, and a little bit of Agua!|
Next came the challenge from Cheryl on her Artful Creations blog, Tackle it Tuesday. This week, it's all H tangles. I chose a new one for me called HiCs, which I LOVE! Plus Hurry, Henna Drum and Hollibaugh.
And finally, Adele's regular String Thing Challenge! A very 's' shape but the tangles were all to begin with 'Bu' in honour of the String's creator, Bunny Wright.

Bucky was a tricky one and new to me, but I gave it my best shot and gave it a bit more space that the string really offered..... I think this tile is quite strange but I don't dislike it.
Thanks for popping by - do let me know what you think! Axxx
