This week’s Guest Diva Challenge is to keep it simple. Evidently I’m still recuperating from last week because I was tired again last night when I was trying to prepare this post and I just didn’t have it in me to tangle a tile. I was fighting a headache, toothache, and my legs were achy. So I looked through my tangle-a-day calendar to find something I’d already done.
Generally there are no size limitations on the challenges so I thought I was safe but when I went back and re-read the challenge, she said that if you didn’t have an official tile you could cut a paper to the appropriate size 3.5″x3.5″. Well, my calendar tangling isn’t the appropriate size, so I’m posting this here today and will attempt to do a tile later and add it.
This first one is purk and opus.
This next one is Meer, Hibred, Shattuck, and Nipa (I think).
I got my simplicity tile done! Yay!!! I drew my dots, border and a simple string. Then I used tangles that were all very easy for me: MacDee by Anneke, Stiritup or Amaze, Zinger, and a tiny bit of Fescue or Opus. Then I erased the upper border line, upper right corner dot, and the right border line because I didn’t like how it looked with it still there.
My pens all seemed to be drying out on me and I had to go over them a couple of times to make them show up. I used a Micron 08 for the thick lines of MacDee and started with an 01 for the skinny lines but had to switch to the 005 for those because there didn’t seem to be enough of a difference in the two lines because of the pens drying out and having to go over some of them again. I’m pleased with how it turned out.
Until next time, God bless,
