Now for the diva's challenge this week... a UMT using Frunky... a fun little tangle that is going to look good tucked wherever you put it.
Since I was working on a tile to send in a swap via Swap-bot.com (check it out, it is a way to get some good fun mail nearly every week!) well, I was in the middle of creating a tile when this challenge came along, so I added it to what I already had:
So, I sent this tile and one other, to a swap partner who lives in Massachusetts, along with a two page hand written letter. That was so much fun to do...write a letter? Long hand? Fold it up and put in an envelope? With a stamp? And put it in to post? Wow!
Since I had written about myself a bit, being a zentangler, I had to include tiles. The other tile, a classic black and white on a string...I forgot to photograph before sending it! But it was cool looking.
Some sketchbook play:
One evening I was just sitting watching something on Netflix and decided I wanted to do something with Flux...and an hour or so later, this is what I ended up with. It pleases me.
Some patterns in this piece: Tropicana, Flux, Log Cabin, Fricle, Tring, Torsdag, a tangleation on Diva Dance, Cayke, Cubine, Opus, Mooka, Domizil and some random Tipple and Printemps. This was fun and satisfying to do.
On the Traveling Tiles front, I finished another by Sue Bailey
This is how I finished it:
Kate Ahrens sent this tile a few weeks ago, and I finished it:
|I almost wrecked this one, but putting Buttercup in|
individual motifs unified it all. I am pleased.
And, a little sweet treat from Kate also:
Isn't it yummy!
