This week, Suzy Mosh is challenging us to use Y tangles that we've never used before. There were a few, and I chose two: Yoga and Yabbut.
I drew them in red, because I've had an upheaval in my life this week: a year long relationship ended on Monday and red is the color of stability, balance, rootedness...which I need in a time of turmoil.
But I did draw something else in red, that I want to show you first.
This piece is ALL ABOUT the relationship that broke up.
Pretty self-explanatory, I think.
Dang, there's a lot of energy on that page!
So red is my theme this week. I've been wearing various hues of red to work and at home, and drinking my tea out of a mug with a red flower painted on it. Actually, that mug was given to me by my sister, as a house warming gift for a delightful little duplex I lived in a few years back. Beautiful mug, truly.
Here are my entries for Suzy's Challenge:
The section of ombre is blended prismacolor pencil going from sky blue, to lavender, to rose pink, to canary yellow. I outlined the ombre and the two end lozenges in burgundy micron.
This is yabbut, done in burgundy micron, with Tuscan Red shading.
Both of these are bijou tiles, and I want to try both of them as part of a piece with lots of patterns, not only as monotangles, but it came up Saturday this morning and I wanted to get an entry in, so here you go.
Next week, I predict I will be back in the flow of all the challenges.
Thanks to all who read and comment. It's encouraging to see people interested.
