So this is last week’s Joey’s 127. I tangled it last week, just didn’t upload the photo. Joey gave us a tangle, and tangled it on a tile for us, and we were to copy that and then finish the tile whatever way we wanted. Sooo much fun! The tangles are Sparkle (the one Joey gave us), Ing, Goldilocks, Taxi, and Sandur (my own tangle, have yet to do the stepouts).

And this week we have the Diva asking us to make splotches on our paper, and then tangle over them. I used herbal tea to make mine, but the color was so faint, I added some inktense ink with a brush to the blotches of watery tea. I used a mug for the circle, and dabbed on some more tea with my finger. Then I sprinkled some color with the brush, and let everything dry. This is the „string“:

I used Akoya, Betweed and Onomato, tipple, some bands, and a few fishies for this. I used my Inktense pencils and a brush to add more color. So much fun! Here comes Diva 282:

This is my take on The Diva’s challenge no. 281. She asked us to use Ing in a tangle. Yesterday I had an idea. It was not the usual relaxed tangling, but I wanted to make a loop with Ing, and that needed some planning. I did two tiles that didn’t look like I wanted to, and then I tangled the end version into a notebook. The notebook has good paper, especially for shading with graphite. I wanted to do another study and then do a final version on a tile. But this one worked very well, so this is the finished version. I added a band of Meer, and doing all the lines of it was the most relaxing part. The shading of Ing was also relaxing, I just went triangle by triangle, and really took my time.


Here is the linework to show the difference some graphite makes:

The dot on the top of the page helped me to keep the direction of light consistent. I drew lots of help lines and some dots to draw this, but I erased most of them. I needed them to get Ing curl the way I wanted and to get the over/under structure to work correctly. The construction part was more work than fun, but all the rest was lots of fun!

Ich habe noch Tabasco und gerebeltes Korianderkraut dazugegeben, als ich vegane Sahne benutzt habe (hatte keine Kokosmilch).
