Diva #291 - black tiles

This week's Diva challenge was on the theme of Halloween. If not Halloween then black tiles. I only use black tiles when I'm challenged to. Never by choice, although participating in a challenge is a choice ......

Right. My tiles.  The collection below are my failures. I tried using a gel pen. I tried using a spider web as a string. Nope. Not happy with any of them.



Maybe I was simply too tired last night to draw.

Tonight I was more relaxed and I treated the black tiles the same as a normal white or tan tile. My first uses Buttercup, Flux, and W2. My second uses a spiral string and is a monotangle of Ponio.





Other drawing


I've been playing around with Ponio lately. The first tile uses Ponio with 'Dillo and Huggins. The second tile combines Ponio with Shattuch and Mooka and some random swirly things. My fixation with spray mists continues.





Thanks for dropping by. Thanks for commenting too.

Sometimes, I can finish a nice tile in less than half an hour, sometimes, I'm working for hours on a tile and I'm not satisfied. I think, most of us want to much, that is not good. It is quiet normal that one result is "better" than another. It happens all the time.
But don't worry, the first ones are not bad at all. I had to admit that the two last black tiles are just wonderful, I like very much a combination of a grill pattern and an organic one and that monotangle of Ponio on the second tile is gorgeous and so are the colored ones, both of them.

I too like the ponio tile very much, it reminds me of a Catherine Wheel firework. And, like you, I struggle a little with white on black; sometimes more than others. I think you will like some of them better after some time has elapsed, I don't know why, but it happens that way.

I think it's visible that you were so much more relaxed drawing the last black ones. However I like the first three too.
You were very busy and with lovely results.

You can really see how much more relaxed you were on the second set of tiles! I also really love the sprayed ones!

Your pieces are beautifully done. I really love Ponio and will have to give it a try.
