Hi and welcome back to the Chrissie Murphy Designs Blog. On Monday night we headed back to Instagram for Tangle Index Time Session 9. 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 August. 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. For now, the wrap up blog post remains your best friend.
What we focused on for Tangle Index Time Session 9?
On Monday night we were back on Instagram. One of the things I have really loved about the Instagram Live Events is how many of tangly artist friends stop by to say hi. I just love it! It feels like an online party and it’s so much fun!
As we tangled along this week, I noticed a bean shape kept presenting itself as a component in some of the tangles. So I deemed this week, the week of “beans!”
And thanks to Liz Gatehouse we have been able to add String 001 to our indexes. Last week Liz asked why I had begun at String 002. I thought I must have already had String 001 in my index, but I didn’t. I could never find it!! So I just started at 002. Thanks to Liz, we’ve fixed that this week.
Here’s the breakdown of what we covered.
- 1 x Focal pattern – Coneglobe by Duška Bacani
- 1x Leaf Pattern – Marley by Christie King
- 1 x Grid Pattern – Arabesque by Christiane Musiol
- 1x Ribbon Pattern – Delph by Joanne van Oort
- 1 x Filler – Calibree by Nancy Domnauer, CZT
- 1x Enhancer Technique – Use Gold
- 1 x String – String 001 by Linda Farmer
Here’s some of the progress pics from those who came along on Monday night. Well done to all involved! More awesome tangling!!
