One day this past weekend I needed to do something. I couldn’t focus on what I was reading, didn’t want to be on the computer or internet, and didn’t want to color. So I picked up a tile and the pen I’d used that day to write in my bullet journal, which happened to be a metallic blue, and proceeded to just tangle away.
I my used comfort tangles of crescent moon, cadent, and meer. And surprisingly I added Diva Dance too. Diva Dance is not one of my usual tangles but I’d seen it recently and it just seemed to fit. Then I drew a few orbs along the top edge. Oh! I did switch pens halfway through, to a purple pen; I love purple ink.
So here is my unusual tile for the week before I did any shading.
Here it is in natural lighting before shading.
I scanned it in grayscale as well.
I toyed with using my watercolor pencils to shade but pulled out my Prismacolors first and just decided to stay with them. Ultimately I think I should have used a few more shades of pencils, but I’ll be honest, I just needed to get this tile finished so I could post it.
So here it is after I shaded with my Prismacolor colored pencils.
Thanks for stopping by,
