Every time I think of the name of this challenge, I can hear the actress on "Alice" saying "Kiss my grits!" Then I am thinking of grits and want to make some. I know that grits aren't for everyone but they are certainly for me. I grew up in Tennessee and a full breakfast is not complete without them. When we were on vacation I had Grits and Fried Green Tomato Napoleon with fresh Gulf Shrimp. SO GOOD! Anyone who doesn't like grits, I think it is because you have not had good ones. Cheese grits are divine and all grits should be creamy and loaded with butter. :)
So, on to the grids. I'm getting hungry here. My first go at the challenge I did on the back of a note card. A friend recently got married and brought me her old note cards to tangle on. I have been using them for doodles and practice but thought I'd see how they work on a "real" tangle. The paper did well. There may be more this size in the future. Using the theme of the challenge for inspiration, I used a mouth as a string. Then the idea of grits are there in the gingham pattern. I think of gingham as a "southern" pattern. I used my own Huggybear pattern in the background. I skipped the little white dots this time.
I wanted to do a tangle for this challenge that was different , so I tried again. This time I used 3.5" square of watercolor paper and gridded the whole thing. I wasn't sure what to do for a string so I just looped around and ended up with this popcorn looking shape. I used Eye-Wa for the background and a dressed up Bales as the center. Bales looks like Puff though. I have been wanting to learn Puff but the center squares keep me away so maybe I'll try Bales this way when I want to make Puff. I hope you enjoy them. I can't wait to see more of what you all have done!
