Diva Challenge #121: UMT XVII: "Birds on a Wire"


Was not sure that I was going to participate in this weeks Dare as am trying to get things ready for a display/demo/show in July. Need to have some inventory. When I saw the tangle being used, felt a little compelled to submit something. I first saw this tangle when Mary used it on her name tag at the CZT training. She had used it as a border and I really liked it. She was kind enough to do the step-out in my journal. I have used it a number of times since. I used it on Zendala Dare #37 as a border. I ended up framing it and entered it in the local Art Association spring show. It helped me get an Honorable Mention ribbon. Thanks Mary! I have generally used it as a border so this time I decided to try to use it as a main tangle. I chose to do a monotangle, ( will Mary hit the trifecta and add Adventures in Monotangle to her credits this week?). I had not done a spiral for a while and thought that would be fun string. It is nothing exciting but I hope that you enjoy it.





I have not had a chance to look at many of the submissions so far, but I did notice that there were a lot of them all ready. Would strongly encourage you if you have not all ready done so to visit I Am the Diva and check out what others have done.

Thanks for visiting, As always, comments are welcomed, encouraged, and appreciated.

Go Tangle !!

    1. Thanks. It was fun to do. I wanted to vary things a little so decided to fill differently.

  6. Your spiral monotanglee turned out very nice. I think you and I and Mary were all in the same CZT training (#10), but I never saw her name tag. Nice tangle and so versatile.

    1. Yes we did. I happened to share a number of meals with Mary and after we did the name tags we shared them at breakfast.
