String Challenge #110
Patterns: 'Nzeppel, Maisie & Antidots
I had a really hard time with this one and I don't really know why. I love the string and all three patterns. I was probably a bit burnt out from my Twinchie/Inchie marathon. Anyhoo, two duds and a day later, this emerged. The more I look at it the more I like it.
These are a few close ups of the Twinchie's I made for this month's swap for the Facebook group Zentangle Artists Trading Card Swap. The task was to create "Twinchie" ( two inch square) tiles with an accompanying Inchie using only one pattern from the Twinchie.
The watercolor tiles were leftover from an abandoned project I started several months ago as I was experimenting with watercolor wash techniques and color combinations. The idea was to do a really wet wash on a large sheet of watercolor paper using several colors then prop the paper up and let the colors drip and run into each other. Then cut it down into two inch squares and rearrange them into a mosaic-like paper quilt.
I ended up laminating a few of the cooler looking ones that somehow managed to look like little watercolor landscapes. I made refrigerator magnets.
At the time I had no idea what a "Twinchie" was. I had several left and started a pattern library
Square One: Purely Zentangle
The focus is on "Opus"
Here I decided to get back to the basics minus the crutch of color.
