Isn't this one funny...you can see where I pressed down on the tissue with my fingers.
|an opus piece I may leave it whole|
This is one of the opus pieces. I might do more with it, to tone
down or balance the brilliance.
|a third run with the same tissue, plus some new indigo|
This is my absolute favorite. I just love the tones, and the marbling effect is just stunning. It's pretty enough to frame, I think. Well, my mom gave me a great idea...take it to a professional printer, where they can make a high quality print...frame THAT, and then use the paper for art.
The colors on this individual tile were so pretty. This was my first one. That pattern on the right is Helen William's String Rose. I want to play with it some more. It isn't as easy to do as she makes it look !!! but I know with practice it'll get better.
Now, on to the challenges of this week.
the Diva gave us hamadox for a challenge this week. It's a pretty fun pattern but I had a hard time making it part of a tile. It just had to be the star.
Hamadox with Squid and Tipple, on tan toned paper and shaded with brown, red, and dark purple. Some white charcoal pencil.
Joey's alphabet string challenge is up to F which she started for us with Festune...
Festune in the lower corner and I added Fescu, and I put Fang in the F, Fronds at the base of the F, and Fiore. After all that color work, this one needed something so I did the edges of Fiore in pink and yellow.
And a string thing challenge
It reminds me of looking out a cottage window into a sweet little garden.
the Traveling Tangles Project on FB has been keeping me pleasantly busy. I've swapped with Michele:
|My start to Michele: cypresses by me on an ATC|
|Michele's start to me: rooster colors and Elven on a regular tile|
And Michele did this amazing finish on the start that I sent. It's like a little babbling brook with a leafy bank. Love it!
