Hi and welcome back to the Chrissie Murphy Designs Blog. On Monday were back on Zoom for Tangle Index Time Session 20. In case you missed it, here’s the wrap up post that contains all the links of the patterns we focused on, as well as a screen recording. 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 Zoom 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, 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. Here is the Zoom Event Schedule for February.
You’ll notice that there is no Tangle Index Time scheduled for the last Monday in February. Monday 27 February is the first day of my Diploma of Visual Arts (Painting) and at this stage I will not be available that evening. If anything changes, I’ll let you know closer to the date.
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 Index Time.
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?
Yes there is. Since moving to Zoom I have been able to screen record. Please head to this link (valid for 6 months) and use this Passcode to watch the recording:

What we focused on for Tangle Index Time Session 20
This was the first of a very special “Choose Your Own” edition of #TangleIndexTime. Heidi Froelich came up with a great idea of having a session where those participating could suggest a pattern for us to add. On Monday night we had our first “Choose Your Own” Session and it was fantastic!
As promised, here’s the links to the patterns we focused on and who suggested them for the “Choose Your Own” Session. I have also included the Tangle Genus I’ll be aligning mine to.
Organic or Texture – Boulder Builder by Bunny Wright, CZT.
This was suggested by Jan Manthorpe, CZT
Border – Unyun by Carole Ohl, CZT.
This was suggested by Yvonne Rein, CZT.
Border, Organic or Grafting – Beikesi by Yu Ru Chen.
This was suggested by Nikki Dawson.
Border or Drama – Hugz and Kisses by Joan Stark.
This was suggested by Starmaro Arts.
Organic or Grafting – Finegogh by Juliette F.
This was suggested by Heidi Froelich.
String Number 18 by Sandy Hunter, CZT
Enhancer – Monochromatic Colour Scheme
At the time of the recording, I wasn’t sure of the details about the patterns I used in my monochromatic colour scheme prompt. I’ve checked since then and here they are; I used OAura by Lin Chiu, CZT and a variation of Candleglow by Suzanne McNeill, CZT
Here’s some of the progress pics from those who came along on Monday night. Well done to all involved! More awesome tangling!!
