To begin the week (June 28) we have Tangle Me 3 and That's New To Me from Suzy Mosh.
The Tangle Me 3 focus is the pattern, Axlexa. For some reason I'm thinking "color" this week (Maybe it was finding all those barely used colored pencils last week...) Since I was tangling original Axlexa plus two variations = 3, and given the date (almost) - red, white, and blue seemed to fit. I'm not sure the color provided the shading for what I was trying to achieve, and make the areas appear like they were folded or coming up off the page, but I liked learning the pattern!
For That' New to Me, the focus letter is N. There has been a lot of attention going to Narwal on the blogs and FB groups lately, and I've never tried it, so I decided to. I added Noodlz to the background (at the top), created by this week's author focus, Neil Burley. I thought a third pattern would look good at the bottom, Neuron - this one I've only done one other time, a few weeks ago on one of Joey's challenges, so I tried it again, Narwal I need more practice with; Noodlz was fun, reminds me of "Wired", and I followed the rule for it!
This looks like the dogwood trees that were my yard growing up, but in searching for a picture I see there are several different pink varieties now ... I might need to see if I can find one that grows in So Cal ... after the water crisis!
Return later this week to see the other challenges ...
