Patterns: Fife, Yincut & Flukes
Continuing on with my current fixation with renaissance tiles, I created this...after a few false starts. The string was just a series of angles, forming many, many areas to fill (or not to fill). Of the three patterns 2 were new to me. Yincut is one I don't use often but I really like it and it's especially nice in the renaissance zone. Every time I've seen Fife used I always think "I like that, I should use it"...then I forget. Flukes is super simple and so effective. I generally avoid grid patterns but I love how dimensional it is and it's great for a bold mark. So, yay! I learned something new.
I recently got my mitts on some official Renaissance tiles and though the above tile is just on a piece of tan flecked card stock, after working with the real deal I shall share this little nugget of wisdom: keep a clean sheet of paper between your hand/fingers and the tile...they love to blot up your oils.
Thanks so much for visiting my blog. Your thoughtful and generous comments inspire and delight me.
