A confession - I don't like Tangling hearts, I don't go crazy over Valentine's Day and I haven't been thrilled by the love-theme Tangle challenges on the web lately.
I show my love for my husband every day of the year, not just once a year or on birthdays. Plus, this year I'm simply not in a Valentine mood.
However, I set myself a goal of completing Diva challenges every week so I have had a go at this one.
Here's the tile I'm most happy with. It features Tipple, Heartstrings, a little Hollibaugh and some swirly lines. And lots of pink.
What's your Tangling style?
As I was trying to get inspired for this challenge I had a wander through the other contributors to the challenge. One of the artists whose blog I regularly visit is Shelly Beauch. Here's a link: shellybeauch
I spent a couple of days with Shelly last year learning to Tangle, so of course I keep revisiting her blog. I really like the way Shelly links her Tangles and how she draws Mooka.
Have a look at this little bit of one her recent tiles.
I love how Shelly draws Mooka and add combines it with swirly lines. I thought I'd give it a try and apply that technique to this week's Diva challenge.
Here's where I got to before I tossed it aside and started again.
The tile was going OK until I tried to mimic Shelly's Mooka. That got me thinking about my personal drawing style. I don't what that is yet, however, I'm interested to hear what other people have to say about their own drawing style and how it has developed.
I did complete a tile last night where I relaxed and went with what I was comfortable with. However, I did keep within the Valentangle theme, which was enough of a stretch, for one night at least.
Here's the tile. I created the tile at the top of this post this afternoon - a much better time to draw than after 9pm on a school night.
Have a great week and please leave a comment.
