It's a String Thing


I have had fun with Pots N Pans before...really early in my tangle habit, actually. It is a funny little piece, very random, no pre-planning whatsoever. I just went where it took me. It has two versions of Pots N Pans, and Beetljz.

And this week, Adele Bruno has given us Pots N Pans to play with again, in a string...that's her thing...the string thing! ha!  It was a fun set of patterns on a fun, angular, linear string: Hollibaugh, 2 n 5, and Pots n Pans, on String 113.

This is what I came up with



I started with the string, which already is halfway Hollibaugh...then 2 n 5 along the hollibaugh boards. With the first set of 2's, I was thinking "eyes!"...but I managed to hold back until I'd finished with the 2n5. But before I put the Pots N Pans, I DID have to get the eyeballs finished. Some of them I embellished more, some less. But really, it wouldn't be the same without the eyes.

Then I stacked the dishes, and added bubbles...see that sample of Bublz by Lori Byerly? Fun!..and some shading.

Looks sort of under watery, I guess?

  1. Ha, ha, I love your tile, those eyes! I will never be able to look at 2n5 the same way again. No, it doesn't look under water, it looks like my kitchen sink with pots and pans stacked up and soaking whilst I tangle instead of washing up lol

  2. I'm afraid that I have to agree with Yorkshire Tortoise....it DOES look like the kitchen sink with dishes waiting to be washed. I love that you made the eyes on the 2n5 all different. As always, your delightful sense of humour comes shining through with your tangle talent. Great work Heidi!
