Maddie

Maddie by Poppie_60

Step out to Maddie.

A pattern I came up with while talking on the phone at work.

It's fairly simple pattern with loads of potential for embellishments.

I haven't tried it in a grid and I'm sure it would work.

I have however tried it in a bit of an organic way, which also works.

Shading will give it dimension and depth.

I do hope you like it enough to try it.

Here are a few examples :

Weekly Challenge #107 New Official Tangle Quandry

When I read about the new official tangle 'Quandry' and how it was similar to Tripoli, I thought, I'm in trouble as I just can't seem to get Tripoli right. I did watch the how to video by Ellen Wolters, but, me being me, I don't like using pencil so I went all in freestyle.

I'm happy with the result and hope you like it too :)

thanks for looking and of course comments are always welcome.

Black permanent ink - then tangled in red gel pen - inspired by Madeleine de Kemp (MakeArtBeHappy)

I see several things here, and it was always going to be in red and black and to my surprise, smack bang in the middle is an Asian man wearing a cap, and where I added my signature, now looks like a hand :)

thank you for looking, comments most welcome :)

Weekly challenge No. 106 The Year of the Snake - 2013

Here is my interpretation for this week's challenge with the Diva (iamthedivaczt.blogspot.com.au/ )

I don't like snakes, so this is the closest thing I could think of, that would still work for the challenge and not give me the shivers :) Can you see '2013'?



thanks for looking:)

Love

Whilst waiting at the checkout this afternoon, I saw a food magazine with a yummy cake on the cover. The cake had the word 'Love' dusted in chocolate powder - not only that, the mag came with a stencil so you could make the cake yourself.

I had other ideas; this is one of them.

As you can see, I've used various tangles here :)

This week Erin ( www.thebrightowl.com ) has asked that we fill the template with one/some of our favourite tangles, the ones that make us 'the artists that we are.

I love Nzeppel, its one of my go to patterns and I've combined it with another fave Florez. I call the middle bit fillers because many times I like to fill spaces with a leafy pattern and add some interest to it.

Thank you for looking - comments are most welcome.

P.s I'm still trying to keep up with my replies and will get to them shortly :)

Still getting round to replying to your comments - thank you :)

Weekly Challenge #105

Weekly Challenge #105 by Poppie_60
Weekly Challenge #105, a photo by Poppie_60 on Flickr.

It took me a while to decide how to start this challenge. I started with a 'Dansk', but then what, I needed to put my spin onto it. I've always liked 'warts and wobbles, and wanted to add 'Florz' somewhere....it worked out well as I had some white space in the centre so the 'Florz' was the connecting pattern.
