Easter is almost here so my classes and I have gotten into egg production big time! I follow some basic guidelines to keep my eggs simple and stress free. The eggs are cut from posterboard with a extra large giga punch. The tangles are done with white gelly roll pens and the shading is colored pencil. I try to keep my shading in the same color family as the paper so as not to complicate things. I usually do just one tangle per egg.- There's no reason not to do multiple tangles, I just want to get my eggs done quickly and I find this is a good way to really concentrate on the different tangle patterns.

The three eggs above use 'Quandary', 'Ditto', and 'Adeline'.

This group was done by the class at Banbury in Bartlett last Sunday. One of the gals brought her gold gelly roll pen. I love the way Ditto came out in gold!

This picture - and the closeups below come from the large group at McHenry County College last night. We had a mix of young to not-so-young and new and experienced tanglers. A great job was done by all.

By the way - one lady left her eggs behind on the display table. Please contact me with your address and I'll mail them to you!
