Practice, Practice, Practice

Some time ago I was part of a Facebook group
dedicated to making stacks of tangles.
Literally stacking one pattern on top of another.

I find after all this time it is still the best way
for me to practice tangles I love,
or tangles that are new to me,
or just ones that need work.

It is really easy to do.
Just make horizontal lines 
- dividing your page into sections -
and fill each horizontal section with 
a different tangle.

So, grab your sketchbook and divide a
page into sections -
horizontal or vertical -
it doesn't matter.
And tangle away!

  1. Great way to practice. Thanks for a reminder of a way to keep it together.

  2. This is still an amazing way of displaying patterns. <3

  3. This whole concept of stacking still excites me. The rounded hollibaugh filled with your signature printemps is just magical.

  4. What a fantastic idea. Why didn't I think of it before this. Thanks for sharing it with us, Alice. Love all your work. You are such an inspiration to me, and I'm sure to everyone else, too. Your books are amazing, too, and I can't wait to see what you three ladies come out with next. Keep up the amazing work you do, and have a wonderful week. Lots of hugs from a very grateful tangler.


I've been waiting to hear from you :).
