A Touch of Irish~Diva Challenge#259
This week we're called upon to create a tile with "a touch of Irish". I never use green and the thing is I really love it, especially with purple and turquoise.
I googled images of Celtic Knots and this stood out. "Oybey" and "Tipple" were the patterns of choice.
Here's the framed ensemble piece I started a while back. I'd created 6 tiles from the 9 x 12 inch watercolor piece. I then went out in search of square frames. I found 2 at the Goodwill. The mattes had some pencil marks I had to figure out a way to mask, but the frames were both in great shape. I gave the mattes the old watercolor wash/splatter technique.
I really like the way these came out. I'm going to give one to my niece for her birthday in April.
Thanks so much for visiting my blog. Your thoughtful and generous comments inspire and delight me.
