Hi and welcome back to the Chrissie Murphy Designs Blog. On Monday were back on Zoom for a Valentine’s themed Tangle Index Time Session 21. In case you missed it, 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 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?
No. From Session 21 onwards there will be no screen recording for the foreseeable future.
As I commence my Diploma of Visual Arts (specialising in painting) I have had to look at how I can sustain Tangle Index Time for the long term.
Having the screen recording is handy, but it adds a significant amount of time to my week with editing. In the long term, I will not be able to sustain this with study. So I have made a decision to cease screen recording and focus on being able to maintain the weekly live events.
The wrap up post will always be available after the event if you have missed a session and you’d like to catch up at home. This will not change.
What we focused on for Tangle Index Time Session 21
Monday night was our first Valentine’s themed session. What a great night it was! We added the sweetest patterns to our indexes. Think of anything heart related and you get the idea.
As promised, here’s the links to the patterns we focused on for our Valentine’s Themed Session. I have also included the Tangle Genus I’ll be aligning mine to.
