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.
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.

I Am the Diva Challenge #357
Diva challenge #357: create a mono-tangle using Paradox. In honor of Easter, I created this silhouette of a bunny. The outline came from Clip Art Queen.
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.
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.
