I figure it will be a last minute, second entry on the Diva challenge.
|The whole spectrum, blurred.|
Cirquital isn't a pattern I've used a lot. I think it looks like monster teeth coming up out of a hole in the ground, or blades. Danger! Danger!
But the roundness of it needed some straight line squares to balance it. And I tossed some good old fashioned boxes in there for good measure.
Yellow is an energetic color, and I wanted energetic
patterns so I decided to make a storm: trio, static,
bunzo, msst, and some printemp along the bottom.
|I used violet for the shading.|
|DoubleD border, Undiala and Concert sun, lokomotiv, mooka|
|Onomato, Discolea, Inventione, Mi2, some tipple and pearls|
It's almost impossible to make something unattractive on a colored tile, because the highlights make it so neat. When I started this purple one I didn't like the onomato at all and let it sit for a day...then I thought what the hey, and put more patterns in there. When I added the lavender for highlights, and the indigo blue for shadows, it got better. The white gel pen glints are just icing on the cake, and that's how it is with all of these tiles.
All of these were fun to do, and I am pleased with how all of them look.
