The challenge on the Diva’s blog this week is to use the new Bijou tiles which are only 2″x2″. The suggestion is that this smaller size of tile is perfect for monotangles, tangle-studies, or for when you only have a few minutes.
I must admit that I don’t tend to do quick tangles which only take a few minutes, I like to set some time aside to relax and spend an hour or two. So for me I thought that the new Bijou size of tile would be perfect for trying out ideas and this is what I have done today.
In my garden I have a hydrangea which has been in for a number of years. Last year it didn’t flower at all. This year it has had more flowers than it has ever had before and instead of being predominantly white, the flowers are starting to look a little pink, or even blue in some cases. Every time I look at it I am reminded of the Buttercup tangle.
So today I decided to play with Buttercup then do a tile with my hydrangea as inspiration. Also inspired by Helen Williams on her blog a little lime, I wanted to do some ‘out of the grid’ buttercups.
