Diva Challenge #243

Like Laura already mentioned: this week's challenge is harder than it looks. When you have to leave 60-70% of the tile blank, it's even more important than normal to really think about a striking composition. It's a real challenge :-) to create something interesting.

Since you're quickly finished drawing this way :-) I decided to try three versions. The first one shows Tootle in white on black:


On the second tile, I put Mak-rah-mee and Abacus together:


Finally I chose to draw Marasu inside a little border frame:


I'm not sure which one is my favorite. Do you have one?

Thanks for visiting my blog, your comments are always read and much appreciated :-)

  1. I think the frames really make the tiles work. Even one small motif takes on a life of its own then. Love all three of these.

  3. They are all lovely of course. The black is cleverly interesting and Marasu is always fun, but my favourite since you ask is the Mak-rah-mee and Abacus.

  16. These are all so nice - I would never have thought to use the pattern you did on black, and it works so well. The Marasu is impressive just hanging out there all alone, you know? But the Makrahmee one is my favorite. The Abacus looks like pretty earrings!

  18. All three are nice, but the middle one is really, really nice. I wish I had thought of something dangling. Great idea and beautifully executed.
