The 100 Day Project is in full swing and I am thankfully still hanging in there. Mostly. I am currently two days behind. I could count some of the color tiles I’ve been making but I really want to draw for each of the days. I am determined to do so. Let me show you week eight.
Day 50 was a fun one! I am using a YouTangle.art Tile from Hahnemühle for most days of the event. The only difference being if I create on my iPad. For color I used Ecoline Brush Pens. I love their color so much I actually have bottles of the colors arriving today courtesy of Amazon. I kept the tangles simple – rock ‘n roll diva dance and printemps. I posted this process here.
Day 51 was also fun! Hahaha! So I guess that’s a clue. If I don’t say it was fun, it probably wasn’t. Hahahaha! For color I used Tim Holtz’ Distress Ink pads. The mini ones and I just rubbed them over the tile. Tangles from the middle out: HarleeQwin, barquillos, patch and flying geese. I posted about the color process here.
I learned something new doing day 52. And I had a super time making this. The color came from using Arteza Fineliners and adding water. Who knew this would work so well! Hahaha! It was awesome! You can read about the color process here.
Day 53 was fun because I always love to draw narwal. That is the cornucopia shaped piece. Basic black tangling on white tile. I am using the Technical Drawing Pens from Zebra Pen for this entire project. Actually for most everything I draw ever.
This mandala for day 54 was built in Procreate on my iPad. I don’t know how to do much with procreate but I know how to do this. Hahahaha!
I won a giveaway! Yayayay!!! I love when I win something. And this was something particularly cool! I won a doodle journal from Color It – a coloring book company for adults. I was hoping to win their dragon coloring book – hahaha! This book is really nice and I’m going to use it for pattern reference and Getting Sketchy! work. This pattern was one of the ones I gave my FB group Tangle All Around last week. I used this for day 55.
The last one for this week was day 56. Over halfway through the project. The color for this was Brea Reese Watercolor Ink. There was some major dark purple on this tile and I thought the white gel pen would work well. And my gold pen was just laying there all alone so I picked it up, too! Hahahaha! I think it looks much like some oriental handmade paper I have on hand. This tile is going to remain one of my favorites just for that very reason. I posted the color process here.
I have so many irons in the fire. I told Mark I couldn’t do anything art related unless I could make an art post about it. Hahahaha! I am so happy I have an awesome way to document my art journey and experiments and findings with you! Thank you for being here each day – it means the world to me!
