That's New to Me #29 & It's a String Thing #102

D pattern: Dicso
Artist Focus: Sandy Hunter~Batiki & Oodle

Dicso is a new pattern that was just published on I love it and thought it would do well on this bright green and blue ATC. Then after scrolling around on Sandy Hunter's website and looking at all of her beautiful patterns, it became clear that "Batiki" and it's variation "Oodle" would be a good fit since the watercolor background reminded me of Batik.

It's a String Thing #102
String 102
patterns: Frost Flower, Sez & Graancirkel

Frost Flower is one of my favorite new patterns because it's really relaxing to draw, so when I saw this week's challenge I was anxious to get going. It took a couple fits and starts trying to figure out where each pattern wanted to go.  I've been using a lot of water color lately and used it to shade.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Your comments always make my day.


  1. Yes, it was tricky to know which tangles to fit in which areas with the string thing. Great tile though, love your shaded frost flowers

  2. You did a great job on both of these! I really like the colors in the TNTM tile. Thanks for being part of the TNTM challenge this week!

  3. That's a nice patterns, Dicso! I'll try it out soon.
    It's funny to see how different your String Thing tile is from mine, although we used the same 'ingredients'. Your's is nice!

    1. Thanks Ilse! My favorite thing about the String Challenge is seeing all of the vastly different results of the same ingredients.
