A set of Halloween inspired tiles colored with art tissue
When presented with this weeks challenges on Monday, I have to admit I was not all that enthused. The Diva's options were either to create a Halloween inspired tile or use a black tile. Joey presented us with a "Finish my Tile" challenge using a "Wud" filled pumpkin as a starter.
Halloween is just not my thing. I don't have kids and even during the 10 years I lived in New York City, studying and then working as a theatrical costume designer, I only ever dressed up once.
Anyhoo, I had to really work to wrap my pen around these challenges, besides Halloween was long over by the time I got around to these. I decided to create a set of tiles using the, as yet unused, black tissue from my art tissue packet. The first tile was really more of an experimental piece. I'm not crazy about it but I try to embrace my less-than-stellar attempts as "adventurous".
Catching up on some Travelling Tangles:
...to this start by Dorte Seupel Kor, travelling all the way from Germany
...to another of Dorte's starts. This was an Autumn themed swap.
This was beautifully finished by Anita Westin in Sweden
This was Anja Shaffeld's (Germany) fantastic finish.
