Challenge # 64 - Fortune Teller



The latest challenge from the 'Diva' has us using a string that is reminiscent of the fortune tellers we used to make as kids. I have been informed that now those same fortune tellers are now called 'cootie catchers'. Why? I have no idea.

I decided to use colored pencil and a colored pen to get my strings in. But I wanted to tie it all together with a spiral. The tangle pattern used is one called 'Bumps'. The instructions to Bumps are shown in my tangle pattern gallery. (click on the picture to make it bigger.)

  1. When I was a little girl there were cards we could string thread through. It was always fun. Your tile brings back happy memories! Not only memories but beauty too! Impressive!
