C is the only letter I've joined at the time, so I did A, B, D, and E this week. Here they are:
I used Arundel in the background, Antique on the cross beam of the A, and A-dalfa. Colored with various hues of red.
the b string is a little harder to see...it was downright invisible before I colored violet in the back of the B-twined.
b has B-twixed, then B-twined in the background, with a big puffy Bales behind everything else. Haven't used Bales much, and I like it a lot kind of puffy and shiny this way.
This was the most fun of all the alphabet pieces. D with Dicso running up the side, and Didada...which really got cool looking when I put color on it and blended "back"
Didada is a neat background pattern that gets downright dimensional with shading.
I loved El Prado the minute I saw it, a few months ago. Echo and Eye Wa on the e. I tried to make the e look blocky. It was fun playing with Echo.
It felt like it needed some color, but looking at it now, it would have been better with graphite shading.
Also, tickled to find the diva challenging us to a pardox vs. diva dance challenge, a la' the zentangle.com video that came out this past week. I actually sat with the video on and did a piece just like the one Rick showed, only I threw some Nippa in there along with the Diva Dance.
But I did all this before the Diva's challenge this week, so I decided to make another duo tangle
One other Diva challenge, that I did at the time but didn't get around to blogging about it was the Moebius challenge. I made this the first day, and lost it! But now it's found again. I created it on a Z3 tile, sent to me by a fellow Traveling Tangler on FB, Kristen Kostelnik.
Something exciting: I am exchanging tiles with Stephanie Jennifer in Singapore! can you just imagine...I've never gotten mail from the far east before. Also, Michele Wynne and I are swapping.
I just finished a couple of tiles from Sue Olsen:
Here are the gorgeous tiles she sent. I'm really excited to do the tissue paper transfer/color technique from her FB page. Also Michele has a tutorial about laying color on paper. Both look like fun, and I get to start when my tissue paper arrives by mail. Couldn't find it locally, so...Amazon, eh?
This one, I did while I watched the Mary Tyler Moore special on TV, the day after she passed away. I wish the photo did justice to the luminous quality of the colors. SO wonderful!
This one I finished, from Sue's Ibex start, in the corner. I added Ginili and Venetian, along with some more Ibex in pale blue in the background. Again, the colors in person on this tile are stunning.
