Dangle Designs

You may recall that recently Kali and I attended the Retreat to Paradise where we had some awesome fun and got to learn from some incredible teachers!
The instructor for our second session was the very unique and distinctive Joanne Fink. I loved her book Zenspirations, where she had one page dedicated to dangling. I was so excited to hear that Joanne was going to be at the retreat with copies of her new book Dangle Designs, which isn't even available to the public yet. We each got our own copy :).
In class, Joanne took us through the steps to creating our own dangled pages. It is so much fun and there's really no wrong way to do this. Above is a project I started in class and finally finished up last night. At least as far as the black and white version goes. Now to add some color - cause you know I'm all about the color! Thank you, Joanne! You rock!
