weekly challenges

Catching up on a few things . . .

Two "Finish my Tile - Ribbons and Curls" challenges



#204 - 
Started with Hibred

Tangles:  Barber pole, Chillon, Bubbles, W2, N'Zeppel, Puf

Watercolour painted tile, black Micron 0.2, white Uni-ball, Prismacolor pencils, HB pencil, blender

 






#205 - Started with Andromeda

Tangles:  Bunzo, Chillon, Japonica, Zazzy, Tipple

Watercolour painted tile, black Micron 0.2, white Uni-ball, HB pencil, blender

 I felt the first tile was a bit 'muddy' so I shaded the second tile less and didn't use Prismacolor pencils.   Happier with the result.




Happy Mail!!
I have been participating in the 'Travelling Tangles' swaps for a while now.
I received these two envelopes recently in my post box!   The February theme was Year of the Dog, can you see the paw print strings?


I also signed up for the Facebook group 'Tangles without borders' February swap.
This is one of the swaps that I have received so far.  Still waiting for my South African swap to arrive!  


Aren't they fun?  I can't wait to get started!  Do you participate in swaps?

  3. It's strange the way we like certain things we make and not others, and our tastes don't always / often agree with others opinions. I like your first 'muddy' tile more too! I wonder if it's about what we hoped for when we started?

    Exciting to see your swaps. I hope our paths cross in the Traveling Tangles Project before too long.

  4. I do prefer the depth of the first tile but how do I get accomplish depth without adding darkness? The tiles started out so bright and happy but that was quickly lost as I shaded, maybe too many tangles??

  5. Beautiful tiles, Joey! I agree with the others, the first tile is my favorite. Using the white pen inside the ribbons is a nice contrast to the darker areas. I don't think it looks muddy at all : ) Your swap tiles look like they will be lots of fun!
