This time I have two tiles for Adele's Bruno "It's a String Thing Challenge" one forIAST #205 and another forIAST #206.
For IAST #205 we had a string similar to a sun and we had to use the tangles Pauline's Pigtail by Adele Bruno, Shard by Carole Ohl and Shattuck by Maria Thomas. This was my first time drawing "Shattuck" all around in a circle and somehow it created a slightly different look than my usual Shattuck. Then I added "Pauline's Pigtail" in the center and I had fun trying to create a gem around it and then "Shard" encasing it. Here is the end result:
This tile was made with black Micron pen, a combination of Prismacolor and Crayola colored pencils and white gel pen for highlights.
Now for IAST # 206 we had a string that somehow made me think of a cushion and then when I read that one of the tangles we had to use was "Yin-Cut" by Maria Thomas I knew exactly where to start. The other two tangles to use were "Funbea" by Beate Winker, CZT and "Pach" by Judy Okawa. I decided to create a cushion with Yin-Cut and use Pach and Funbea along with a little bit of Printemps and Marasu (both from Zentangle) as the cushion decorations. Here is the end result:
This tile was made with black, and brown Micron Pens, Le Plume II marker no. 30 Rosewood for the light beige Printemps and shading with Prismacolor pencils and graphite.
Finally, the tile for "I am the Diva Challenge #327" we had use a beautiful pattern called "Lisbon Fragment" by Henrike Bratz and the "Diva Dance" by the Diva, Laura Harms. I did some red Diva Dance flowers and added some "Fescue with a twist" next to them. For the "Lisbon Fragment" I colored it's sections with two different colors and then on the section of the very bottom I added some "Bales " just for fun. Here is the end result:
This tile was made with red Sharpie Pen marker, black Micron pen, Prismacolor Colored pencils, and white gel pen for highlights.
I had lots of fun and happy relaxing time creating this tiles. I hope you liked them and come and visit often.
