"The journey begins with an idea, so many possibilities, so many what if's to explore"
This week's challenge is a UMT (Use My Tangle) featuring "Pickpocket" by Tomas Padros. It's a beauty, but it's also very high focus.
I felt like this was a good journal piece because it's definitely something I want to remember. I'd previously set up a few watercolor pages in my DIY journal and went for it.

A Challenge Duet
Another long exploration done and dusted. At first, I wasn't too crazy about the IAST pattern selections but I liked how the string played into Joey's Mak-rah-mee. I had done all but two of the Mooka tendrils on Monday, hoping I'd be able to carry them into IAST. Now, that's my least favorite part of the page. My favorite parts are the two IAST patterns Kaboom and Kulecane. Go figure. It's always a journey;-)

that's actually a bronze acrylic so it looks much better in person;-)

These next two pieces, I worked on simultaneously, starting with a large watercolor practice sheet I cut in half. I find that I really like doing these circle flowers and it's a great way to give my old tiles and watercolor rejects a new life. The original background was a light turquoise wash with orange and blue splashes and spray. I hated it. Yet, it inspired the results of both of these pieces.
