A long overdue reunion

Here’s my first tangle in weeks! The weather here in Eugene, Oregon got really beautiful, really quick! And I’ve been spending more time outside with my fire toys.

Here’s an example of some of the sites I’ve been visiting in Oregon:

Mannimal Mask #1

So, I couldn’t just live with the purple zendala as my Thinking Out of the Box concept.

I’ve been a mask maker now for several years, I first learned how to make masks when I decided I would make my own so I could hide amongst the weirdness at Oregon Country Fair four years ago. I love costuming, and I thought this would be a fun project. And boy did it! Now I have a collection of masks that I’ve made for myself and my partner as well as headwraps and other small minutiae. A few days ago, I thought about throwing some tangles on my masks and then I remembered I had a precut mask that only needed shaping. I quickly through some designs on but I made a horrible mistake and I put it aside. So now, after my earlier post on iamthedivaczt.blogspot.com weekly challenge, I felt I should really take the time to pull the mask back out and try again. I’m still not terribly pleased with the entry, and might do a little leather working and put a better mask up on this post before Saturday Night, but hey, here’s what I’ve got so far!

First chance to try tangles on a mask. I plan on making more of them.
