Diva Challenge #261-Stacked Bijou
This week's challenge was presented by guest blogger Jane Reiter, CZT who asked us to create a bijou (2"x 2") tile as the central focus of a stack of tiles, grading in size and to use colored paper or cardboard to which we would add border patterns.
I pondered this for a good part of the day while going about my business, planning my paper scrounging and drawing time. I didn't really feel compelled to pull out boxes and drawers to see if I had paper to start measuring and cutting. When I got home from work (very late), I had every intention of starting in the morning and put on a DVD to chill for a bit before bedtime. I got the brilliant idea to grab a piece watercolor paper and paint a faux stack to frame my little bijou (a left-over from my Christmas refrigerator magnet project). I figured I'd just set up the watercolor before bed and then draw this morning...
HA! This took me forevvvvvvverrrrrrr.

Roman Numeral Series: VI
patterns: Emingle, Prestwood, Mooka, Rokpool, Dex
For this week's challenge Joey asked us to use patterns of our own choice with a specific interest in what we chose for the top and bottom bands. I thought I'd continue on with some borders and grid patterns discovered whilst creating swap tiles recently. Not a big fan of grid patterns previous, I landed on a few that I really like: "Emingle "& " Dex". I love "Prestwood" as a border as well as "Oybey" (used in the Diva tile).
Here's the series so far
