This week’s challenge is brought to you by Amy Broady CZT from Tanglefish and the them is to B.Y.O.B.—Bring Your Own Beverage—to your tangling session and utilize it in your art.
I prepped my tiles at work today. I made myself a cup of coffee and spooned some liquid over the tile. I wasn't that impressed as the colour was fairly light so I tried again; this time 3 heaped teaspoons of coffee in about a third of a cup of water. I spooned it over, and as it was a big blob I soaked it up with a paper towel and kind of sponged more colour over the tile - I did a third one, this time putting the coffee in a saucer and placing some cardstock over the liquid - I haven't tangled on this one as yet.
I do want to try something else I have in mind and I will let you know what it is, maybe tomorrow night :)
I started my first tile using 'Cruffle' and 'X' tangles, then I added one of my faves, 'Chechain'. I like it because it flows really well and doesn't take long to do. Also, I wanted to add some blue as I do like brown and blue together. I added a bit of a twist by only colouring the white bits of part of the pattern - it might look a little strange but I do love how it turned out.
For my 2nd tile I drew a simple flower using my pattern 'Maddie2'. I used black gel pen, Faber Castell Sanguine and a tiny bit of Faber Castell May Green.
Thank you all for visiting my blog and for all the wonderful comments - blessings to all xx
