I’m participating in the prompt (# TTKICPROMPT112519 )from Today’s Tangles: Keeping it Classic facebook group again this week. The instructions were to do the four corner dots and border lines then to draw lazy s shapes from the center.
From the list of tangles to choose from I first selected Nipa. I really like Nipa and don’t use it often enough, so I was happy to play with this one. Next I picked Rain for it’s big contrast; this is another tangle I don’t use very often but because I am not that great at auras, it is not a favorite but I do like it.
After that I Ahh was my choice and I had my eye on Zinger too; so I incorporated them both. Then Eke and Echoism caught my eye. I find them to be very similar yet completely different. At first I thought I’d only add one of them but opted to add them both. I think this time around I like Eke better as it reminds me of a strand of Christmas lights.
So here is my tile, scanned, before shading.
And here is a picture taken outside in natural light, although it looks a bit overcast but it really wasn’t. Odd.
And here is the scan after I shaded it.
And now pictures taken inside because it got dark before I got around to photographing it.
I hope you like the tile. It was a fun one to do. I’m hoping to do some painting this holiday weekend. I don’t know if I’ll do the next episode of Bob Ross or redo the black one. I really want to have a good black one but I’m not sure I can accomplish it using the acrylics. I may try to do a smaller one; I just don’t know.
Any way, if you are in the USA, I hope you have a great Thanksgiving and if not, I hope you have a great weekend. We’ll be celebrating with family, which is always a good time.
Until next time,
This week Sandy talked about tangleations. I decided I’d try my hand at some since the number of sections on the suggested string lended itself to that. (#TTKICPrompt091619) Here is my string.
Here is the tile after tangling with Knightsbridge, Msst, Echoism, and Stricles.
After finishing the tile, I wish that I had just used squares in Stricles for the tangleation because I got lost and had to think very carefully and still blew it. The others were not much better. I did like the msst-knightsbridge combo though.
Here it is outside in natural light.
I’ve decided that Stricles is best with simple shapes; it just looses something with the more complex patterns.
Here is the finished tile. I wasn’t quite sure what to do about the shading, so I went pretty basic.
And in natural light . . .
I think I would have liked the tangleation of echoism and msst more, if I’d have had a bigger section to draw in.
Well, that’s my tile for the Today’s Tangle: Keeping it Classic prompt this week. Thanks for stopping by. Which is your favorite?
Until next time,
Once again I participated with Today’s Tangles: Keeping it Basic prompt #TTKICPrompt072219. She suggested we “slow down” when tangling this week, which I did and I think my lines were a bit smoother.
Sandy said that the string this week was inspired by 59th Street Bridge song by Simon and Garfunkel. So it is a simple resemblance to a bridge; nothing too difficult this week.
I chose Shattuck and Knightsbridge because they are easy and I remember them without looking them up. Then chose Echoism because I thought it would play nice in the c space at the top. Then comes my oops. I frequently confuse Cubine and Cadent. I think I do that because I learned them about the same time but that is the only reason. I love Cadent and used it so much when I first learned to tangle about 10 years ago. So that is why I’ve included Cadent in my tile, which was not in the tangle pool to choose from.
Here is a scan of my tile before shading.
I really enjoyed tangling this tile. Echoism is one I haven’t used much and enjoyed it. Here’s a picture I took in natural light.
I’d started to lay down some graphite and remembered that I needed to scan and take a picture first. That is why the lines on some of Shattuck on the right are so dark.
I enjoyed shading this one too. Here’s the scan.
Here is the picture I took in natural light, albeit a bit overcast.
I really love how ‘puffy’ the top center part with Echoism looks.
Well, that’s it for me today. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have been encouraged to put pen to paper. If I can do it, anyone can.
Until next time,
