so, the idea is to slosh your coffee or your tea or what have you, onto a tile, and tangle.
So tangle away, I did!
I started by stirring my green tea with lemon and honey with the mug sitting on the tile. Some good little sloshes...that didn't show up AT ALL. Except now there's a shiny sticky spot from the honey, probably. With green tea not really working, I put some frozen berries on the tile, let them thaw, and ended up with a lovely purple splotch.
I wish I had taken before pics, because the splotch was interesting, sort of like a gingko leaf. Oh, well. As it was, narwal came to mind so I tried it. And niuroda and some printemps and maryhill.
Narwal kind of disappears into the splotch/niuroda area. I need to practice that one some more.
Now, for Joey's challenge. Finishing a tile someone else starts is pretty cool. I may have to jump in at FB and see what it's all about. :) In the mean time, here is the Joey challenge.
the tangle is Villers #2
and this is what I did with it.
It has been a while since I did anything on toned paper, and I had some gray card stock so I went with it.
When I started this, I wasn't liking it much, but putting the highlights on along with the shading was so much fun, and it ended up looking a lot cooler. Too bad about that graphite in the upper left...the glare! But it doesn't look like that in person.
Both of these were fun challenges. I want to get out my "spill" tiles from when Laura presented this as a challenge a few years ago.
this was berry juice, too. And I was scared of color, didn't know what to do with it, so I did this funky alien cave thing. ha! It was fun then, and it is fun now.
