Inktober is over. Hallelujah! Hahahahaha! I know it is a good event meant to get us in the habit of drawing each day. I am just glad the pressure to create is over and I can go back to having fun with tangling again.
I started with this beautiful tile that my friend Priscilla DeConti colored and sent to me. She sent a whole bunch of pretty colored tiles that I will be working on. For this one I used the string for the week and layered some All Boxed Up, Porter and printemps. I love it!
You will see more about this soon – Miya Arts sent me a set of their beautiful watercolors to play with and talk about. I used an olive and a teal to make this tile.
Then I tangled some viola, printemps and some loosey goosey florals. Highlights were made with a white gelly roll pen and a white chalk pencil.
For this tile, a YouTangle.art Tile from Hahnemühle, I completely saturated the paper then added a yellow, pink and purple watercolor from Miya Arts. And I just sat it to the side to dry overnight. I love how it all melted into each other.
A couple days ago I mentioned Johanna Basford’s Inky Wonderland class. I took this tile and added some flowers from her class and tangled some viola to fill in the space. I’m thinking I need to add Johanna’s flowers into my tangle pattern florals. They go so well together. And I got caught up on The Flash while I drew this one.
I am really getting some mileage out of these water gun colored tiles we made in Tangle All Around awhile back. And honestly – I should have made more before the snows start again. Fiore is the name of this pattern. I just love drawing it!
And then there is this tile. Hahahaha! I swear I love this pattern Jody named TunnelVizion so much! You can never go wrong drawing these little guys! So much spunk and personality! The background color is Jane Davenport’s Inkredible Inks. I used graphite for shading and white charcoal for highlights. This tile is actually 3.5″ square. They all are. Now I think I will sit down – catch up on Arrow – and tangle another couple tiles.
