Suzy Mosh New to Me challenge: Lily Popcheff and R patterns

I have entered three challenges this week: Diva, Joey, and SuzyMosh, and I must say Suzy Mosh this week has been my favorite. We were to go with R tangles, and use Popcheff patterns, as well. And that made it so much  fun to research and practice...not only a lot of R patterns, but Lily has a LOT of tangles.

One of the things I love about Lily's inventions is how many spaces there are to put patterns into. Every single one seems to have triangles, squares, curves, ellipticals, and many other shapes to play with. Browsing her patterns, it's easy to see her African roots.

The Lily Popcheff patterns I chose are Glace and Pines. Glace is the string, so to speak, and I put patterns inside the spaces. I provide a link to it, so you can see what it is like as a basic pattern.

The new to me R patterns I used are rouche, rosewood, and reticulated. Rain is in there, in a tangleation. Rain is one of my favorites, so I've used it a lot, but it does start with R and it just put itself in there. Like it was meant to be.

I used sepia sakura microns in 05 and 01, and shading/coloring were done with prismacolor Tuscan Red and Henna. Somehow, the rays on the reticulated, coming out from the half circles, ended up like footlights...but I like it.

This isn't my usual style at all, but it ends up being my favorite challenge entry for the week. Lots of fun!


  1. How inventive Heidi! great idea to use Glace as the string. I had a bit of a laugh when you say 'African roots' - maybe in another life lol - Your choice of tangles are lovely and I like how you used other colours for shading - thanks for trying out my patterns :)

    1. hahahaha For some reason I thought I had read in your profile that you were South African. Well, maybe it's your New South Wales roots I'm seeing in your style hee hee.

  2. Nice tile! I like the way you varied Pines. Thanks for being part of the challenge this week!
