Last week's Diva Challenge was to make a four tile mandala. I started with four tiles, cut out of multi-media paper:
Here is the finished project:
Let's see here, what did I use...
This one has carpet flower, umble, modern nippa, pixioze, and hollibaugh.
Omigosh, this is my favorite! Cubine, Leaflet, Agni, Coil...also, this is where I put the Joki in the edge which I then went back and added to the other tiles.
This one, I used beadlines in the center, then my Torsdag, and my friend Dave's Pinbawl. The Joki with some Fricle on the edge. I like how airy this section is.
That was a fun challenge. I just didn't get to my computer for any length of time last week.
Now, Joey has us doing a montage, using nine tiles, and stringing over all nine, then each week she gives us a pattern we must use. I took a page from Michele Wynn's book, and decided to use ATC's.
But first! A baby picture😀
My Favorite Thing: dyeing paper.
And then I cut it up into ATC's...
the first week was African Artist:
I also did some funky coils
and there's a little bit of BB in there.
Notice that stripe.
The second Joey Week was Maryhill
WHAT a fun tangle!
I also laid down some striping in
and filled the white spaces with tipple.
Notice the Cruffle up there in the corner.
and this is the third week,
which is Cruffle..and old comfort food tangle
See the little segments of Maryhill edging in.
Here the three of them, together.
I couldn't fit them crossways in my camera.
Eclipse day! Okay, first of all, looking at the eclipse through the glasses was WAY
cool. But check out the tree shade! Wow!
I want to make up a pattern of it.
But, I DID make up a pattern based on some Bosch detail.
|From The Garden of Earthly Delights|
So, I love the disc shapes of these leaves. And I got out my sketchbook:
|I think I'll call it Bosch|
I had so much fun with this. A wonky hex grid, and various fillers and patterns inside...FUN!
I could do this all day. :)
And of course, I hung out with grandkids...
|He actually stayed asleep when I put him down|
So glad I woke up early this morning. Some quiet time, and enough to post a blog.
