Diva Challenge # 244: "Tripoli Triptastic"

Have not had a lot of time to tiles for challenges recently but when I saw what this week's challenge was about, wanted to try to get something done. Had the opportunity when I had to wait for some routine work to get done on a vehicle. Tripoli is a tangle that I like using. I would not say that it is a "go to tangle" like it is for The Diva, but I like it for the secondary pattern that develops when you use the different fills in the triangles. Since I have not been able to participate regularly, I also decided to try to combine two challenges. I think it was last week that it was being minimalist. I chose to do this with this tile. Here is what I came up with. I hope you enjoy it.




Tangles used: Tripoli, Henna Drum

The tile is one that I did for a class when was doing alcohol inks to add color to tangling. Had it as an example and decided that I would use them to tangle on. These were with Dylusions inks. I think the colors on here are Turquoise and Crushed Grape. When I did these I sprayed the tile with water first and sprayed the inks on the wet tile.

I hope that I have some time to look at some of the post of other people. May not be able to comment a lot as still working on getting inventory up for the market that I am participating in the next 4 weeks. If you have not, visit I am the Diva and see all the great art created by other artists.

Thanks for visiting. As always, comments are welcomed, encouraged, and appreciated.

Go Tangle !!

  3. Nicely done Donald! I like your Tripoli with the breakaway triangles, and the lovely Henna Drum adds a softer touch for balance. Great splashes of pink and teal!

  4. I love how you filled the corners of Tripoli, the floating pieces, and the addition of Henna Drum. Henna Drum is a favorite and I never think to add it. Lovely colors too.

  5. I like what you did with this week's Diva challenge. The viewer can decide whether the floating pieces of Tripoli are falling off or falling on to fit into a puzzle. BTW, I am completely sober ;-) I like the way you prepped the tile to add the color with alcohol inks. I've seen that in others' work as well. I just added learning the technique to my ever enlarging "to do" list.
