I've played with Brella once before, for the It's a String Thing Challenge number...uh...I-don't-know-and-I'm-too-lazy-to-go-check. That's a number, right? ^_^ It was fun, but I like this rendition much better. I was originally planning for the Brella section to be receding with the way I shaded it, but instead it looks like it's under a bubble and really stands out. I like it ^_^ I'm also the only person on this side of the world not to have seen Star Wars yet, so thanks for highlighting my ignorance, Laura ^_^
It's pretty unbalanced, but whattayagonnado. Also - exciting news - I found a journal that I lost over a year ago that's actually good! ^_^ So, the tangle journal has returned. For now. The pages are pretty thin and the Micron shows through if I do any black sections (even those as small as the tips of Opus or the middle lines in Brella) and so I'm using the back of each page for practicing and coming up with tangles.
|Tangles used: Brella, Opus, Zinger|
I've also recently been enamored with the idea of drawing "base" tangles really large with my Pigma Graphic or Sharpie and doing a little bit of line embellishment with my 005, before adding in tangles with my 01. Here are some "bases", one with Mooka and one with Pubfleur (a tangle from Cris Letourneau's awesome book Pattern Play).
I'll show you both of these filled with tangles later on in the week. Check out my "Tangleation Vocation" challenge by clicking on it's tab at the side of the screen, and also my other blog of abstract art over at My Journey in Black and White. Enjoy and be inspired! ^_^
