Using Tofube last week set me up nicely for the “What’s in a Name” diva challenge this week. I did as Laura instructed and started with the dots and border, then penciled my name diagonally across the tile because seven letters is a bit long to go straight across. Then I did as Laura did and auraed my name.
Then I checked the focus tangles for Square One: Purely Zentangle and Pattern-collections. All the tangles were grid tangles and I wasn’t sure I wanted to use them but I did anyway. The Square One tangle is Tufton. I liked this tangle; I used it on the bottom of the tile. Pattern Collections focus tangle on Tuesday was Two Eyed, which I used above Tufton.
I only did one square of Ryse Orb, today’s focus tangle on Pattern Collections but I really like it and wish I had done more with it. It is much easier than Two Eyed. Ryse Orb is the one in the upper left corner.
Here is the tile before shading.
I wasn’t feeling very good yesterday and so this isn’t shaded as well as I normally would. And it appears I didn’t shade all of Two Eyed in places. Two Eyed is one of those tangles that the steps take a lot of focus for me. Drawing it was easier than shading it. My eyes kept crossing. I even forgot to put the finished tile in this post until after it was posted. I guess I was a bit out of it.
It looks a bit better smaller as you cannot see my lack of blending as much.
I appreciate you stopping by and really appreciate it when you leave me comments.
I’ll be glad when this stuffiness and congestion leave, so I can think straight again. Have a great week!
Until next time, God bless,
