I normally look forward to the various online challenges I participate in. Until recently, I haven't missed a Made by Joey for months, and I've been a regular Diva participant for over 2 years. I've backed off It's a String Thing lately because I don't use strings that often anymore - I find them too restrictive - and there is a time factor involved. I can't do everything all the time.
Lately, however, it's been a real effort to take part. Not sure why or what to think.
This week I've only made two tiles and both for Made by Joey.
Here's last week's J, which I completed last night. I've used Jelly roll, Jax and Jelly Legs.
Tonight I tackled K. I used Kiss, Keeko, Kitl and Lollywimple. The last one doesn't start with a K but none of the other K tangles suited so I chose one using the last initial of my name, L.
The last IAST challenge I did was something I am quite proud of. I used an Opus tile and experimented with the tangles and with the Mist colours.
This tile was an experiment with deep, intense colours. I had my Vibrant Colour Shading book by Eni Oken with me, my grey Copic markers and my Derwent Inktense pencils. Here's the result. The size is A4. Tangles used were MySwing, Quabog, Mooka and Tripoli.
A weekend away
Last weekend was a long weekend in Canberra. As I don't work Tuesdays it was extra long for me. The Husband also took the Tuesday off.
We spent the weekend at Jervis Bay - my 3rd visit in 4 months and my 5th since January last year. Each time we go we stay somewhere different but all within easy reach of the beach.
Here's my portable art studio. I loved the wooden floors throughout the house, and the big windows that overlooked lush gardens at the front and back. Getting lots of ideas for my dream house that I hope to own one day in the area.
Here he is at one of the dog beaches. He loves being in the water, running on the sand, chasing tennis balls in the surf and swimming. He is one happy, happy dog boy.
Have a great week and thanks for dropping by.
