This week at "I am the Diva Challenge #322" we were asked to create a tile using "Aquafleur" pattern by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas. This was my first time trying this tangle and I have to say I really enjoyed it, I loved its soft curves and how it creates a beautiful shell or flower.
I had a little bit more time than usual since my kids were busy studying for their finals ;-) and I was having so much fun with Aquafleur that I was able to do two tiles...and here they are:
The tile on the bottom was my fist attempt with Aqueafleur, for my second attempt (top tile) I felt a little bit more comfortable with Aquafleur and dare to try drawing patterns inside the "shell" sections. It was a little hard to fit patterns in the tiny areas, and for a moment I almost stop, but I kept at it "one stroke at a time" and I did it! ;-)
Both tiles were done on toned tan Strathmore paper, using black and brown Micron pens, Prismacolor color pencils and for highlights white chalk and white gel pen.
I hope you like them and as always if there is anything from this post that you would like to try on your own drawings please feel free to do so.
