Diane and Carolien challenge us to make a tile with tangles starting with K, A and T. I fancied doing Krli-Qs again and added Ahh and Tootle. I kept the tile light and airy, with lots of white space. That's nice to do every now and then ;-)
I made myself a warm cup of tea (it's a cold and rainy summer day in Holland) and took a look at Joey's blog to see what Monotangle we were to make this week. I was pleased to find a lovely Kozy surprise :-) which I put in String 141.
This week's guest blogger is Erin Olson, she's asking us to make a Zendala. A real challenge to me, I think this is my first (or second...?) one. I sketched the template she gave us on a tile and started filling it with different kinds of patterns. Made most of them up myself, apart from Jax ;-)
At the Diva blog, you can take a look at the other entries. Always a great thing to do.
Thank you for visiting my blog, you're comments are always much appreciated!
We celebrate the second birthday of It's a String Thing! Adele designed a new string for this special occasion and I decided to fill the tile with Drupe and Prestwood (and leave Meringue behind). A fun and happy challenge - many congratulations to 'Mum' Adele ;-)
I spent some lovely holiday time in France where we also slept one night at Le Puy du Fou in one of these marvelous tents:
You wouldn't say, but inside there's a posh hotel room ;-)
Back home, I've got time to grab my Sakura's again and check the Diva challenge. Sandy Hunter is this week's guest blogger, nice! She asks us to shift our focus to the negatieve space (the white part) of our tile. I quite like to leave negatieve space in my tiles every now and then, and I decided to put four white parts in it. I used the tangle Kiss as a string and as a backgrond filler, and put some kind of Orbs-la-Dee to it.
Today, I fancied drawing a spiral made of Snayls Trayl. Around it, you can see some widgets. The border is not an existing pattern, I think... The lines flowing out of Snayls Trayl, top right, might have a name, but I don't know which one neither :-)
