When this tangle was first shared by Mimi Lempart on tanglepatterns.com I was drawn to it. It is flowing and interlaced and draws you under and over and then Rick introduced a simpler pattern that just thrilled me too. I wanted to start doing "installations" and Mi2 seemed to be my muse but, I neglected to realize that choosing to incorporate black pearls would take a lifetime. I put it aside.
With Mi2 being the Challenge this week, I unrolled my 20.5" x 30.5" piece of Lokta Natural paper and am determined to finish it before weeks end. I will show you my start and will repost a final shot later in the week. With company coming for the weekend and much to do, we will see what happens.
Deadlines are a good thing? Must learn to "biggify."
Well, here we have the finished product below. I got a bit stuck on Springkle, it is a very addictive pattern once you start. I also shaded more with a medium grey colored pencil for more definition. I find on the Lokta paper it is harder to "smudge" your shade lines so the colored pencil was key. This was a lot of fun once I had a fire under me. Sometimes it takes a extra push to get your project done.
