I chose Popcloud for the main part of this one. I had never used it before and wasn't sure I really liked it much but something about it appealed to me right then. When I tried it out on a scrap it was just what I needed at that moment - it is a little hypnotic curving back and forth like that and it is just right for my mood. I wasn't sure how to shade when I was done, but I like it and will certainly use it again. I'm not sure the other patterns I chose to go with it really match it in feel, but I do like the Florz in the middle as a virtual 'blank space'. Oh, I just thought of a good way to shade that part... now I'll have to try it out.
The second go around I also tried one I haven't done before, which I now can't recall the name of... girders or something like that... Girdy is the name. Super easy pattern with a nice open look to it. I like the beads continuing out of Kunstler and the Tuftid is just the density needed in the center, although I wish the last space had come out even with the others. Well, no mistakes right? At least I don't call them mistakes when there is nothing I can do to fix them!
This is one I did a week or so ago in a sort of 'color block' string of rectangles. I really like the top right and bottom left rectangles and the rest turned out OK too. That one in the middle on top may be something new. This is not the best version of it I have done but I was playing some to see what else was possible.
This last one is an October project over at a Yahoo group I belong to. We were to trace out hand and use it as a string. I traced the outline and then added the creases in my palm and fingers to break up the space ("Let me see your lifeline... talk fast!). The only section I a am not happy with is the tip of the index finger which I wanted to fill in with a fine pattern so the scale was more 'finger print-ish' but overall I like it. Hope you have a great week, now I have to get back to what I am supposed to be doing!
Like the effect of Girdy. Have not tried that one. Will have to kee in mind for later. Nice job on both.ReplyDelete
Meant will have to "keep" in mind. Typing is not my forte!Delete
I know where my muse went, it's at your house right now. Wow have you been productive! And everything you have posted is clever and original. Love your popcloud tile best.ReplyDelete
I love the fact that your two challenge tiles are so different and yet stay true to the string!ReplyDelete
I'm with you 100%, I feel restricted using 3.5 inch tiles and much prefer using my sketch books, however, I do the weekly strings to get out of my comfort zone. You have made 2 pretty tiles using some lovely tangles :)ReplyDelete
Your two tile for the challenge are beautiful, and the next two too. Time ago I was planning to 'tangle' my hand, but forgot about it. Thanks for remembring.ReplyDelete
All your work is great, but my favorite is the one with popclouds It is like watching a cartoonfilm. The corners with the floral touch is beautiful. Great :)ReplyDelete
I like the popclouds tile because you made them look flower-like. All good tiles and I must remember too, about tangleing my hand...ReplyDelete
Oh my - what lovely tiles - popclouds wowReplyDelete
I love your use of popcloud! I need to remember this one for future tangles.ReplyDelete
