Tangle of the week: N’zeppel + cockles n mussels

Do you know the song ‘Molly Malone’? If not, you can listen to it here.

Right, now we’ve all got that stuck in our head let’s get on with today’s twofer post. First up is N’zeppel, tutorial here.

When I first came across N’zeppel it seemed like a lot of faff to me; drawing shapes just to draw them again with rounded corners. But after a couple of tries I started to really like the look of it. And then when I tried drawing the initial grid in pencil and rubbing the linesĀ out afterwards, I fell in love.

It reminds me of a pebbled beach.

Then I discovered that you can do even more with N’zeppel.

As you may have seen in this post, I made a card for Kelleys DIY giveaway.

This tangle is called ‘cockles n mussels’ (alive alive-o), which is just N’zeppel with the rounded shapes filled in. You can find the tutorial here.
