I live on the other side of the world to the Diva, so her Monday challenge becomes a Tuesday evening one for me (and many other Aussie Tanglers, I'm sure).
The challenge this week was to tangle on something unexpected. I chose to tangle on some old scrapbooking paper. I'm really, really pleased with both my efforts. I think my first attempt is one of the best tiles I've ever created.
The tile features dex, betweed and a tiny bit of tipple. I've merged the original print with the tangles by adding an aura and copying elements of the original. I've also highlighted elements of the brown print.
Here's the un-tangled original.
My next attempt at the challenge was to reproduce a design I've used before but on a patterned 'tile'. The tile in this case is more scrapbooking paper.
This tile uses cyme. Shelly Beauchamp CZT uses this tangle to great effect in her work.
Finally, I have an example of ZIA that hangs on my side fence. I created the piece months ago. It is about 80cm tall by 40cm wide. It is particle board with a frame made from an old cupboard door. I have several versions of these on the fence.
The ZIA fence art has been weather-proofed with a product called Mat Spray, which is described as a permanent mat finish for all papers and boards. The boards have been up for several months during a wet, windy Canberra winter. So far, so good.
Please feel free to comment on the artwork you see on my blog.
Thanks to all the people commenting about this week's Diva challenge. It is rewarding to have such supportive comments about my work. Come back to this blog in the next week or so to see a feature about my ZIA door art.
I've created a blog post with instructions and materials list for the ZIA fence art.
