Here's the first tile. The ink for the Flux is a dark grey which didn't come out as grey on the tile unfortunately.
My second tile plays with Kaiser Mists sprays, and the tangles Squid and Pixiote.
My final tile is one which combines Washi paper, coloured pencils and tangles. The tile ws left over from the ZIA I worked on last weekend. The tangle in colour is Gnarly. I got the idea of using Gnarly from Ilse's page this week.
Last weekend I played around with an A4 ZIA which combines Japanese Washi paper and my Kaiser Mists (in red, candy and yellow). Washi paper has been used in Japan for centuries and is most commonly seen in origami and in Washi Eggs, which is a Western use of the paper. I combined all that with some cardboard shapes I found in my old scrapbooking box.
Tangles include: Tri-Bee, Mooka, Tripoli in the bakground, Shattuck, Purk and Knightsbridge in the white space section, and Shattuch, Tripoli and Buttercup on the tiles. I hadn't intended to use Mooka but it just arrived all on its own so I went with it.
Walking the dog
I'm very fortunate to live somewhere with easy access to native bushland and the facilities of a city. That's what Canberra is - a capital city in the bush. The photos below were taken in a tract of bushland only 10 minutes walk from my house.
It is Spring here and I'm seeing some of the shyer creatures coming out. Below are some photos of an echidna, which is an animal only found in Australia. This one is about 40cm long. The photo is a bit grainy as I didn't want to get too close to it and scare it.
And here's my dog Milo enjoying the wildflowers. Milo is a Kelpie and is 10 years old. The poor dog has arthritis in his hips now which means daily walks are even more important for him.
Have a good week. And sorry for not visiting many of your blogs at the moment.
