Diva Challenge #322
I managed to pop into Laura's stream Sunday night while I was on a break at work and got the gist of this. Aquafleur is one of those patterns I don't use unless I'm challenged to. I have a hard time figuring out what to do with it. I have to say that I enjoyed drawing this and I love the dimensional quality of the wrapping ribbon effect. It could so with some further exploration.
Finish My Tile Alphabet Series: "Z"
And there it is... A-Z done! What a fun series. These are bijou tiles I originally intended to use as page headers in my pattern collection binder. I've since re-organized it by pattern type so for the time being, they're a neat page in my book.
"C-perfs" on a C-perf string
Adele Bruno celebrates 200 weekly challenges this week. What an accomplishment! Adele's challenges are unique in my small group of weekly blog challenges. Rather than submitting via link, she receives the weekly submissions via e-mail and then posts the weekly gallery on her blog, so there's always that element of anticipation and reward to see how others resolve the sometimes extremely challenging challenges. Working within the confines of a string doesn't appeal to everyone and there's what I call "fitting square pegs into round holes" when the selected patterns don't seem to want to play nicely with the string at first. There's much satisfaction in making it work
Each week Adele comes up with a string/pattern combo and then generously comments on each submission. That's a lot of work and dedication! I'm guest blogging on Joey's Challenge on July 10 and I twirled around several half-baked ideas to come up with one challenge. To do it every week? Yikes! so Kudos to you Adele! And Laura! And Joey! All of you rock!
These are the Travelling Tangles I completed in the last week.
my finish to...
...the first of 3 lovely starters
by Jem Miller travelling all the way from West Sussex in the UK
...to the 2nd of Jem's lovely starters
...to the last of Jem's 3 amazing beginnings
It's hard to believe I've been involved with this amazing group for a year now and it never ceases to inspire me. Between personal swaps, the random partnering for the monthly themed swaps and Jem's generosity for sending me multiple tiles with each exchange, I have completed more tiles from her than anyone. Every one of them pushes me out of my comfort zone. We have completely different styles and her line work is so precise and fluid and her backgrounds are amazing. Jem has a great blog called The Ragged Ray. Check it out if you haven't already
...to this flowery beginning by Lin Laidler
I love it when folks send me official tiles to work on. I don't have the bandwidth or budget to get my mitts on these tiles so it's always such a treat to put my pen to them. I always complete my travellers in the order I receive them so it was serendipitous to relax with Lin's tile in the end.
My "92 Days" project of daily drawing prompts from the Facebook group, Tangled and Journaled, Too!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Your thoughtful and generous comments delight and inspire me!
