Hi and welcome back to the Chrissie Murphy Designs Blog. On Monday night we had Tangle Index Time Session 4. It was back to Instagram for this week’s event. As promised, here’s the wrap up post that contains all the links of the patterns we focused on. Let’s get into it.
What is Tangle Index Time?
On social media I’ve shared pics and posts about working on my Tangle Index quite regularly. When I do, I always receive lots of comments and messages about it. The main theme of the messages is “I would love to own a tangle index but I struggle to find the time”.
This (in a nutshell) is what the Tangle Index Time Live Events are all about. If you’ve been wanting to work on a Tangle Index and have been struggling to find the time to do so, then these events are for you!
Happening each week (but alternating between social media platforms), these one hour live events are a place where we can meet and work on our Tangle Indexes together. I’ll be continuing to add to mine, and thought we could all work together to build our own.
Do I need special supplies?
All you will need is your regular tangling supplies and whatever you would like to use for your Tangle Index. I use an A4 three-ring binder with 2in x 2in square coin collector sheets because these fit Zentangle Bijou tiles perfectly.
But you can use whatever you like. A notebook, index cards and a box, a display folder…. They will all work.
I have found with Tangle Indexes, the most important thing you need is time to dedicate to working on it. That’s what these hours are about.
Is there a Tangle Index Time Live Event Schedule?
Yes, there surely is.
Above is the Live Event Schedule for July. These are FREE live events.
Note that the time zone is Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST).
Is there a Facebook Group for Tangle Index Time?
Yes, there most certainly is. The Home for Expressive’s Facebook Group will keep you up to date with;
- The Tangle Index Time live event schedule
- Tangle Index Time Wrap Up posts
- Progress pics from other Expressive’s who are participating in Tangle
You can join by clicking the link here to my Home for Expressive’s Facebook Group.
The Timezone doesn’t work for me. Is there a recording I can watch later?
Not at this stage, but you can catch up on anything you’ve missed through the wrap up blog posts like this one.
What we focused on for Tangle Index Time Session 4?
On Monday night there were just over 80 of us on Instagram Live at one point and it was awesome. I had quite a case of brain fog though….. and it took me a while to get going this week! I’m so sorry!
One of the things I mentioned in our session was how another of our tangly Expressive’s was highlighting original components of tangle patterns really well.
At the time, I thought it was Meredith who was doing this, but I was mistaken. It’s actually Gillian Lait, CZT (The Seaside Tangler). I think Gillian is doing a great job of this and I thought I’d add another photo of Gillian’s index so you can see what I was referring to.
I had a wonderful time tangling with you all again. Here’s the breakdown of what we covered.
We worked on 7 tiles for our indexes again.
- 1 x Focal pattern – M-Anning by Teresa Clerc, CZT
- 1 x Leaf Pattern – EZE by Emiko Kaneko, CZT
- 1 x Grid Pattern – OOF by Zentangle
- 1 x Ribbon Pattern – Ryll by Esther Piszczek, CZT
- 1 x Filler – Loxo by Milde Weiss, CZT
- 1 x Enhancer Technique – Alphaborders
- 1 x String – String 5 by Sandra Strait
Here’s some of the progress pics from those who came along on Monday night. Well done to all involved! Fantastic tangling!!
