I went with another scratch-off tile this week, except this one is the gold foil. I knew it wasn’t going to scan or photograph well, but I wanted the shine of the gold foil for the holiday.
One of the Gratitangles for the week is Hollis. I’m not good friends with this tangle but I thought its scrolliness would be nice on the tile. Once I got it on the tile, I realized that my curves/hooks are not as pronounced as they should be, so maybe next time it’ll be better.
I also decided that I wanted more of the gold to show through, so I started “filling” some of the Hollis lines. Some I completely scratched off, others I dotted, and others I stripped.
Then I felt it was still a bit bare, so I added in a few small scrolls/swirls. Then I overdid it. But it is what it is.
Here are the pictures. Of course I did this after dark on this rainy and overcast day, so it isn’t natural light. It doesn’t show up very good but here it is anyway.
This first one is the scan…it didn’t turn out at all.
From this angle it doesn’t look like it is shiny gold foil.But it sure is. In this angle you can almost see that it is gold. Well, I hope you Americans have a lovely Thanksgiving tomorrow. Ours will be odd but I’m sure it will be good.
Until next time, God bless,
