The Diva’s challenge this week uses Water as the theme. I haven’t done any watercolour backgrounds for a couple of weeks so was excited at the prospect of starting my tangle with a watery background.
My first background used Derwent Inktense pencils and cling film. The result was pretty bright and I wasn’t sure how well a tangle would show up so then I tried my water-soluble crayons and also attempted to splash colour on. This was much more subtle. Made a lovely mess of the kitchen table but I enjoyed myself.
While they were drying I was thinking about what water brings to mind for me. One of my nieces is travelling the world at the moment and I love to see the pictures she posts, they included some from diving on the Great Barrier Reef, so perhaps coral reefs? I love gardening and although I don’t have a pond I love to see water-lilies and that might work too.
Have workmen in at home at the moment so apart from making endless cups of tea, I have plenty of time to tangle whilst I’m tied to the house.
So first my coral reef tile on the Inktense cling filmed background…………
There are so many tangles which I could have used on this tile because they reminded me of coral, but I stopped after I had used Gutz, Clam Bake, Sand Swirl, Pop’t, Grubz, Angel Fish, Fescu and Mr E.
And then my water-lily tile where I used Zopetto, Mumsy and Lily Pad.
