The lovely Diva, Laura Harms has given us our monthly UMT (use my tangle) this week. She has chosen CZT Carole Ohl’s lovely starlike pattern called afterglow! Here’s the step-out at Carole Ohl’s website.
I’ve never use afterglow before. I tend to enjoy the more organic flowing types. Of course, that is quite short-sighted of me before I even try it! As I progressed I started varying line color and width. I used micron pigma 01 in brown, and sepia, as well as a graphic 1 also in sepia.i then applied several of Eni Oken’s techniques for tiny details, and tan treasure tiles. It didn’t become special though until I shaded the star. I love how it turned out. 😀
Adele Bruno was in the path of the latest hurricane to hit Florida. After finally receiving their electricity back and other services she was back this week with It’s a String Thing challenge #212. This week’s string is pictured above and the 3 tangles used were:
Wrapped by CZT Gale Sherman (stepout)
Danzer by Prairie Kitten (stepout)
Ok-Rah bt CZT Lisa Buckley (stepout)
I really liked the tangles but no matter what I tried, I couldn’t manage to find my zen and both of these were a disappointing mess! But here is my confusing picture of both tries together.
This week’s Diva Challenge was brought to us by guest bloggers, CZTs Juliette Flessinger and Kellie Fellinge, from the podcast, Tanglepod. Listen to their diva Challenge here. This week we were challenged to find and use our “cozy” tangles. Tangles we feel relaxed and comfortable with. I chose flux (Rick’s version) and went with a tile i had distressed earlier and then shaded using Crayola Super Tips. The Crayola Super Tips are water-soluble and perfect for shading with watercolor, Derwent Inktense or distressed inks. Right now, they sell on Amazon.com for $14.00 USD for 100 colors. A great deal for most wet media projects. All of the guest bloggers this summer have been excellent.
