In this week's at Adele's Bruno "It's a String Thing challenge #191" we had a string in the shape of an egg with zigzag lines and we had the four tangles to choose from.. I used on my tile only three of them : "Zenith", and "Echoism" from Zentangle and "Mel Mel" from Adele Bruno herself.
Here is my tile:
This was such a great challenge. I had an urge to fill "Zenith's" triangles with gems and I filled "Mel Mel" flowers center using the same colors... so much fun!! Thank you Adele!
I really enjoyed the time creating the Gems by adding and trying different colors. I don't know if anyone is interested in knowing which colors I used, but just in case here there are: For the Red Gems I used "White", "Blush Pink", "Pink", "Carmine Red", "Crimson Red", "Magenta", "Crimson Lake", "Blue Indigo" and "Sunburst Yellow". For the Blue Gems I used: "White", "Light Cerulean Blue", "Peacock Blue", "Copenhagen Blue", "Violet Blue", "Indigo Blue" and "Lemon Yellow" all in Prismacolor Colored Pencils. I Blended all the colors with a stump with a little bit of Baby Oil and at the end added highlights using a White Gel Pen. For the initial drawing I used Micron pens in black and brown and the shading was done with graphite.
I hope you like it and thanks for visiting this post. As always if there is anything form this post that you would like to try in your own work please feel free to do so.
