This week’s Diva Challenge is to do something earth day worthy. The diva drew her challenge on the back of a box of granola bars! Using recycled products is a great way to support the earth so I took my challenge in a similar but slightly different direction. I use a lot of paper. I cant keep enough in the house. I decided to conserve paper as well and drew my challenge on the inside cover of my sketchpad. Not very creative but I didn’t use any paper either! I traced a tile on the pad board twice and started with paradox and ended with gobs of echo lines. This was a true tangle as my brain wasnt anywhere to be found today. If you would like more information on the diva challenges, you can find the diva herself right here!
Can you believe there have been 312 diva challenges!? I don’t know where she goes to keep them fresh but I love her ideas. This week we’re doing something we’ve done before, using a stained tile as a string to Tangle on. I don’t drink tea or coffee so I watered down a bit of my green aquamarine Inktense pencil and dropped tiny drops of ink on the tile then carefully let it dry to preserve the drop shapes. Tangled, marker background and prismacolors for shading the bubble shapes and I called it done. It was nice to work in color again. I’ve almost exclusively stuck with black and graphite for awhile as I focus on the art of tangling. As always, if you’d like to join the Diva challenges you can find her here!
This will be a short post as there’s still much to do, but I want to thank all of you who come by! I hit 3k views last week and it wouldn’t have happened without all of you, dear readers! See you soon for “It’s a String Thing”. I can’t wait to see Adele’s pictures from Italy!
