This week at I am the Diva, Laura challenges us to create a striped string. I love stacked strings, but on a whim, I challenged myself to do the stripes spirally. I've been enjoying Laura's streams on Sunday evenings. I'm always inspired by how she works through a tile as there doesn't appear to be any pre-planning, beyond the theme of the challenge, as to what she'll be drawing.
I don't have internet at home, which is why I'm always at the cafe nearby when I need to connect. I do have 4G on my cell-phone, but it always runs out before my month is up and I'm too cheap to add more. The slow speed doesn't really bother me that much except I can't watch videos.
On Sunday evening I got myself all set up at the cafe with a book and a beer, waiting for the Twitch notification and just as it started I realized I forgot to bring my drawing pens. I had a fine ball point pen and a sharpie. I drew in the string with the pen since I had no pencil. I went back later and darkened a few bits to give it some contrast. I can't really say I'm all that crazy about this one.
Finish my Tile Alphabet Series: "T"
Another Bijou to add to my collection;-)
a new pattern by Adele Bruno
Adele introduced her new pattern "Trella" in last weeks challenge. I really enjoyed this one and had it finished quite early, so early that I forgot to send it in;-P
I used a lightly colored tile I'd created using wads of nearly spent art tissue and a dip pen using blue ink.
I completed these Travelling Tangles this week:
