Tangling on …

It’s been a while since I blogged … my new life is keeping me busy. Homeschooling 3 kids, helping out with the Placencia Humane Society by fostering kittens and puppies, discovering a new country … the list goes on.

Today I felt that I needed to share my latest obsession with you. It all got started when I purchased Eni Oken’s new eBook “Echo Lines”. A quick glance was all it took to get me drawing!

One aspect I really like about Eni’s books is the detail. She takes the topic down to the bare bones and it explains in great detail. I won’t reveal too much about it … get your own copy 😉

Here is my very first attempt featuring Bubble Love.

I started off with the pattern and filled the background with Echo Lines.

My next tile I started by using Ketti as a frame. Added some Joki, and the rest just flowed out of my pen.

One of the pretty shapes I used to apply Echo Lines to was this Mooka.


You can see it appear all over the tile.

I also enjoyed adding S-Shapes with Echo Lines:


Of course I filled a couple of pages with ideas featuring Echo Lines. And as always, things just happen .. Like this pattern that I called Banana-Braid.

Many patterns feature these Echo Lines. If you want to get started with Echo Lines, pick some patterns from this list:

Once you get the hang of Echo Lines you will tangle without the need for a step-out. It is addictive! Very addictive!
