More Waybop! It's a good thing I like this pattern so much. I've had a lot of fun with Waybop this week and though I could have posted any one of the other pieces I've done, I was happy to give it another go.
Finish My Tile Alphabet Series: H
additionally: Hypnotic and Hearts Divided
I'm creating a Bijou series with Joey's challenges. These are headers for my pattern library so I'm adapting her strings/starts by using the featured pattern as part of the letter in black and then using additional patterns in the background in brown. I could not not Hollibaugh the H;-)
I finished a couple of Travelling Tangles this week:
Anne Marks sent me this super cool watercolor start all the way from Australia
This was a challenge because I don't have many colored pens. Anne's line work was done with a fine pink pen ( I'm guessing a .005, maybe a .01 Micron?). I decided to use a dip pen and red ink and just let-er-rip. After penciling in a string that followed the watercolor marks, I honestly did not know what each next stroke was going to be. After a little initial anxiety, I have to say this was one of the most fun pieces I've worked on because everything from the colors to the artwork was quite out of my comfort zone.
Heidi Whitney sent me this
This one challenged me because the paper is much darker than either photo implies, thus there was very little contrast between the paper and the line work. Maybe it's my old eyes but I could not see what I was doing. I started by going in deep and dark. I love Niuroda so I kept going with it. I'm really pleased with how this evolved. Waaaay out of my comfort zone, but that's where the magic happens;-)
Thanks so much for stopping by. Your thoughtful and generous comments delight and inspire me!
