Still floating



Lots of sharing went on during our FloatFest weekend. One of our participants, Lacey, showed us how to make a tetrahedron from an ordinary envelope. Very cool!




We experimented with watercolor pencils, using the tangles, Puf and Paradox as our base.


Between classes and show and tells, we floated around nine tiles that each had the same string. Each person filled in whatever areas they felt like filling, and put it back on a table. At any time during our stay, we picked up a tile from the table and tangled a little bit more. On Saturday, we assembled the tiles into a "quilt", put it in a 12x12 frame, and signed our names on the back. We got the kitchen crew to draw a name, and Sheryl returned to her home with all of us lovingly tucked under glass, going home with her.


Thanks, everyone, for a wonderful weekend.

  7. Hey, Bobbi! It was a wonderful space, yes? Hope your group had as good a time as we did. That moon was awesome.

    It would be great fun to Zentangle with your group.

  8. Love your zentangle "quilt"... looks like a fun activity for Zentangle club. Did you all use the same string? It looks like a quarter circle in each corner and diagonal lines connecting the circles. That way no matter how many you had they would all go together. Awesome!
