Somnee

I don't usually title my pieces, but I have named this one Neon Night. It is a little bit out there, I know, but I hope you enjoy it. In addition to Somnee, I used the pattern rose.

After posting this, I noticed that it did not display well on some devices. So, I created an alternative.

I Am the Diva Challenge #355

The Challenge: Use the tangle Verve.

This is a redo. Originally, when I did this challenge,  I just could not figure out why I was not getting the effect I wanted. Turns out, I was creating the pattern wrong. I like this one much better.

Joey's Weekly Tangle Challenge #213

The Challenge: Finish my tile. Start with Frames. Make it front and center.

Last week, when I was looking at tiles on the Fleeting Time blog, I clicked on a link which led me to Lynn Mead's instructions on how to build bridges. Those instructions, and some graph paper, were just what I needed to complete this week's Joey challenge.

Zentangle: Dotillism/Pointillism

If you have visited this site before, you know that I usually create my tiles using Inkscape and Photoshop software. Using software instead of ink, pencil, and/or paint has advantages and disadvantages.

Among the advantages is the ability to test several options, which is what I do. For example, once the image is drawn, I  create multiple versions of the image, each painted differently, and I look at several backgrounds. I usually play around with the various painted images and backgrounds and then choose the combination I like the best. Often, I am not very confident about my choice. I was thinking about that and thought, This is a digital format, and, as such, the display can be interactive. Why don't I let the viewer make the choice? So, in this post, you can change the background.

Dotillism/Pointillism

I was over at pattern-collections.com and I stumbled upon this article on Dotillism/Pointillism. I loved Ina's (the author's) results. So, I tried emulating the effect using Inkscape and Photoshop. Here is what I got.

Zentangle: Name

I am the Diva Challenge #356

In this challenge, I was to tangle around my name. It is embedded in there somewhere.  I usually draw in Inkscape, but not this time. This time, I returned to my sketch book. I used a Micron pen and pencil.  I then photographed the drawing and was not at all pleased with the results. The color is way off. I have the same problem when I scan an image. If anyone can offer any photography or scanning tips, it would be greatly appreciated.

Zentangle: Pattern Coil

Joey's Weekly Challenge Number #208

This was drawn in Inkscape and modeled after the design on a container that I use to hold craft supplies. I drew it in response to Joey's #208, finish my tile, challenge that starts with the pattern Coil. It is springtime; however, it is snowing. So, I thought I'd use spring colors. Maybe Mother Nature will take the hint.
