As luck would have it, I’ve been working on an “Organic Tangles” class, so this is a tile I completed just last week. I wasn’t consciously inspired by the upcoming Earth Day, but perhaps unconsciously …
Here’s Rixty, Trumpits, Reef, Rox and Tipple in honor of Earth Day.
Diva Challenge #313: Honor Earth (aka Amanda)
OK -this is a technique I’ve been wanting to try. It’s a good one to use on a tile that has a large smudge or mark on it. On this tile, I deliberately used a paper towel to put a big splotch of coffee. It was challenging to let the splotch be what it was instead of trying to control the splotch! The marking left by the coffee stain then became the string for this tile.
I even forgot to sign it before I took the picture!
The one thing I’d say is that my micron pens did not like going over the coffee stain. They got clogged up, similar to when I use them over Prismacolor. Still, the challenge was fun and different. What do you think?
Here we go again – circles and squares. I paired one of my favorite tangles (Chang) with one of my favorite techniques (14 Shades of Gray ala Sonya Yencer of Ohio). I added some 9B graphite and viola!
What do you tangle when it’s been a while and you don’t know where to start? Check in at Casa Diva and meet the challenge. Here’s my first time of the year!
