In my first tile I used the tangles Dreamcatcher, Shattuck and two from SandySteen Bartholomew - Mumsy and N.A.F. I added colour as a message to our weather gods - it is meant to be Spring so enough with the cold weather and storms!
My second tile has half of B-Tweed, some Purk, a touch of Paradox and a background of Huggins. The tile is not finished as well as I'd like as I was using Zentangle to help calm my nerves. We had a severe storm last evening - intense wind, hail, rain and trees branches falling down. Unrelated to that we also had a light fitting fall down and smash to pieces as we were watching telly. So, I like my idea but not the execution.
I've been playing around with Washi paper (see my previous post for other examples). Here are some tiles using it.
Last week I spent a couple of days on my own in a cottage in Blackheath in the Blue Mountains, west of Sydney. I first started solo travelling last year. Now I take off for up to a week on my own each school holidays. I find solo travel refreshes my spirit and gives me a self-confidence boost.
This time I travelled only 4 hours away by car. While I was away I: walked a lot within the town and in the bush, browsed through a couple of shopping streets (Leura, Katoomba and Blackheath), had a 2 hour treatment at a day spa, drew, sat drinking tea by the fire and read.
Here are some photos.
Have a great week and thanks for dropping by.
