I feel like I've rediscovered my mojo somewhat thank goodness. I had a lovely relaxing time doing both the diva and joey challenges this week, in fact my diva tile this week is actually much more suited to last week's challenge in terms of my attitude when drawing it. I've also had a lovely morning tangling today. We are midway through a "super storm" forecast to be one of the worst in 50 years. I'm not sure it's delivered what was promised, at least not locally (thank goodness) but it did successfully black the whole state out for a few hours last night.
As a result we have a highly anxious cat. He hates thunderstorms and is going to be exhausted tomorrow because he just can't settle. He woke my son up at 4am trying to have a cat fight through his locked cat flap door. We assume there was another cat in the back yard lol. I did manage to get him to settle on my dressing gown for a couple of hours this morning, but there must be another system on the way in because he's agitated again now.
Here is my tile / page for this week's finish my tangle challenge. I've taken a before and after shading shot, amazing the difference it makes. I invested in Eni Oken's ebook on layering this week and am trying to use some of her suggestions. Click on the heading to see what others have done.
The Diva challenge was just to use straight lines, so I used Ing, a tangle from a previous challenge that I previously disliked and now love, with the relaxed mindset I wanted to achieve last week and drew this:
Again you can click on the heading to see other lovely work.
If you want to see some more tiles I started that have been completed by another tangler, pop over and visit Anita at One Stroke at a Time. She did a lovely job of finishing the tile starts I sent her. I especially love the autumn one because she has finished it completely differently to how I would do it.
I also posted some lovely examples of finishing zen gem tiles in my blog last week. If you missed it, you can catch up by visiting here. Again, a couple of tiles finished in ways I would not have thought of and I love them.
That's all for now, thanks for dropping by, and for all the lovely comments. I appreciate every one!
