I had the good fortune to spend last Sunday afternoon with Brenda Lee Shaver Shahin, CZT.
I felt so inspired by her work, and learned lots. She is absolutely wonderful, and so encouraging.
So, this week, while my Mom has been recovering in hospital, she sleeps a lot. Plenty of opportunity to tangle!
I was amazed by what I had the courage to try, after even one lesson with Brenda. All but two of the tangles are new to me (Jonqal and Diva's Dance, I have used before. Other than that, it was full speed ahead with some of the fabulous new tangles Brenda taught me.
I'm so proud of myself, and must admit I'm loving the oooo's and ahhhhh's from my family, who refuse to acknowledge this as an art form, at all.
It is about 8" x 10", and done completely with Sakura Pigma pens, right from .01 to .08, plus the Pigma Graphic #1, to help me with my nemesis... blacking in.
I can't come up with a name for this.. it just hasn't gelled in my mind. If you think of one, please let me know. I'd love to hear it.
I hope you enjoy it, as much as I enjoyed working on it.
Til next time, happy tangling!

The most wonderful surprise in all of this , has been finding such a warm and wonderful community built around this art form. Without exception those I have encountered are encouraging, friendly, generous of spirit, and great fun! Thank you, everyone, for the warm welcome. I hope you will enjoy this blog as much as I enjoy yours.
