Birds on a Wire




'Birds on a Wire' is the challenge tangle this week. It was designed by CZT Mary Kissel - and you can see the step outs on  her blog HERE .

I did this tangle in the spiral format again. It's a fun way to do a monotangle. The picture below was the way I first did it. I love black and white but something draws me to color. After I took the photo, I erased most of the pencil shading. I then used Tombow markers for the red, wellow, and oranges. Then I finished up with a Prismacolor green colored pencil.

  4. At first I thought that I like the black and white one more. But the longer I look at it the more I like the colored one. ^^ Beautiful.

  6. Like both versions. The spiral really works well in the round, and so does this tangle.

  9. A lovely idea and it must have taken ages to draw so beautifully. I think the pattern is more expressive with grey shading, but the coloured version is very pretty.
