Wibble, Flec and Edgar
Adele's challenge this week was to use a few ribbon patterns, including 2 new patterns by regular IAST contributors.
Here's the line work
I thought I'd include it since I actually remembered to take a picture of it;-) I decided to keep this pretty simple. I did employ Maria's technique of using a coat of clear nail polish on the background. It does deepen the color ever-so-slightly.
I finished 2 lovely starters from Kate Ahrens of the 1 Art Lady Kate, Tangles and More blog. Kate, thanks for taking me up on my offer to swap;-)
A while back I offered several tiles up for swap here on the blog and Kate was one of the few brave souls who took me up on the offer. Who wouldn't be thrilled to open up the mailbox and find this:
For those of you who are unfamiliar with The Travelling Tangles Project, check out the group Facebook page. There's some amazing stuff happening there and lurking is encouraged;-)
Kate and I arranged our exchange independently of the group. The value of exchanging art is incredible. It's a wonderful personal connection to each other and as scary as it may be, it knocks you out of your comfort zone to develop your art in ways you probably could never do on your own. Anyhoo...jus' sayin'...
...To Kate's start
I wish the photographs could do justice to the rich intensity of Kate's backgrounds.
I went a little crazy😁

I finally got around to this...
...hand marbled tile from Sandy Kelly Jones
Many of my Travelling Tangle ZenPals have sent along hand colored tiles to play with. I'm hoarding a little stack of them. Sandy sent me this ages ago and I just now found it's greater purpose.
