The other day and for whatever reason I read my horoscope. It was incredible.
To quote, it said, "Write, draw and create." How fun is that.
I also had great weekend. It was spent at a 2 day workshop from the Chicago Calligraphy Collective. The workshop was given by Cherryl Moote CZT (mootepoints.org). We made dimensional accordions books, rotating cards, and a 3D pyramid exploding book. She also showed us a paper bargello technique. I came away with a ton of new ideas for combining origami and tangles.
I cut a template out with my silhouette die cutting machine with black cardstock. I originally had a different purpose in mind but after looking at it I had the sudden urge to tangle it. Of course then I couldn't decide if I wanted to use the positive portion of it or the negative. You guessed it, I decided to do both. I used the same tangles on them. It's surprising to see how different they look.
