Color Tile with Annie, Echo Lines, and Quabog

This week I decided to use another of the tiles that I made from the practice of my distress stains. The colors are a bit dark, so I wasn’t sure how it would turn out.I used Ian McDowell’s Tangle Library app based on Sandy Bartholomew’s tangle cards to decide what tangles to use. I picked Annee, the middle tangle, from it.

Then I remembered I had Eni Oken’s Art Raffle app too. So I opened it and raffled away. Echo Lines showed up on one raffle and Quabog on another. ;) I’d already thought about using Quabog and then it came up on the raffle, so I went with it (or at least part of it, as I didn’t do the upside down part).

Here is the tile after tangling, first the scan and then the picture out in natural light.

At this point I wasn’t sure what to do. I got out my prismacolors and used them to add some shading. I ended up adding a brownish red color too, other than the yellows and greens. All I did to Quabog was add some white ink for highlight, although I did thicken the right side of each one just a bit, as Maria had mentioned in a project pack (spinner). I also added some white pencil to the echo lines but I think I did it too early and too scratchy but it is what it is. ;)

Here is the finished tile, first the scan and then the one taken outside in the natural but overcast light. :)

I’d love any pointers you can give me for working with color and “shading”.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a great week.

Until next time, God bless,
