Diva Challenge #183 – UMT U-DID

X-DID ~ LifeOfJoy.meThe Diva Challenge for this week is to use Annette Carlo’s tangle U-DID. I didn’t use any other tangle on this piece. It’s ok; it is my first attempts with this tangle, so I guess overall it isn’t too bad. At first I had way too much shading and had to tap out some of it with my gum eraser. I know I’m not supposed to use an eraser but I couldn’t help myself. I really liked Laura’s variation much better than how this turned out. Oh well! Maybe next week’s will be better. :)

Until next time, God bless,

Michele ºÜº

  1. Michele, I love what you did with ‘X-DID’!!!! It looks great as a monotangle! The fact that you didn’t have lines drawn to keep it inclosed is awesome! It really captures a whole different look to the tangle! Thank you for trying it out!Have a good one! :0) Annette Share Humanity

    1. Thank you Jean! My husband and I both think the center looks like an ant. :D I almost changed the post title to U-DID Ant.

      I appreciate you sharing your thoughts!

    1. Thank you Donald! I agree shading can be very perplexing. (I like that word!) Shading can either make or break an otherwise great piece. I’m still learning!

    1. Awwww, thank you so much Holly! When I drew in the tiny lines it looked like it was missing something; so I added the dots and suddenly, it looked complete to me. :) Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to comment! I appreciate your kind words.

  2. Oh, shoot. I’m glad I’m not the only one with eraser issues. This is very clean and simple. I find myself putting too much on my tangles sometimes.

    1. :D Duchess, it looks clean and simple NOW, thanks to my eraser. LOL I totally know what you mean. I’d rather break the “rule” and erase some of my shading than feel self-conscious about shading and not try to shade it at all or not being happy with results because I shaded too much or in the wrong places, as shading makes a HUGE difference in the final results.

      Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment.

  3. I like your tile, sometimes a monotangle is hard t o do. At first glance the middle one does look like an ant sitting on a flower. I use an eraser sometimes also ( shh that’s just between you and me) :)
