So, the pattern this week is Florez, a very enjoyable cool looking tangle.
The Diva challenge from last week was to use color and I ended up enjoying the process of making colored tiles using Derwent watercolor pencils and water, that I made several more, in varying palettes.
I started with a bijou sized tile centered in the regular tile, which gave me my border, and a center space.

This pattern is so pleasing to me, I think because of the weighted lines. That's why n'zeppel is a favorite, too.
There are a couple of places in the tile where the color provides a bit of natural shading, but I also used some prismacolor pencils: Dahlia purple, French gray 50%, and Henna. AND! my new blending pencil. It truly does move the pigment around on the paper. Yummy!
This would make a very pleasant border along a booth in a Mexican bistro. Or in my kitchen, a backsplash behind the stove. Niiiice...
