The firs Challenge of the month is typically a UMT Challenge, and Suzanne kept with this format choosing her tangle Aloha. You can read about it's origin on her blog here. It is a fun tangle to do and is versatile. I chose to use it along with some other tangles to create an organic themed tile. I thought about using a grid tangle in the background. Was more an decision of convenience that anything else. Was thinking of something like Florz. Aloha can be used as a border. If I get it done soon, am working on a mat for a 5x7 picture. May use Aloha and some similar tangles on this as well.
I first had contact with Suzanne on line through the Diva Challenge. She participated in them in spite of her anxiety about her ability and then she also decided to go to Providence and attend a CZT seminar. It is interesting to see the progression of her work over this time period and now she is a guest blogger. Congratulations Suzanne.
Anyway, here is what I came up with. I hope you enjoy it.
Tangles used: Aloha, Flux, Boing, Ahh, and a few Zingers
Shading done with HB pencil.
I have not had a chance to look at all the things posted so far. I have seen a few that have appeared on my reading list. Would strongly encourage you to go to I am the Diva and take some time to explore all the great art that is submitted. This seems to be versatile tangle and think that may see a variety of things.
Thanks for visiting. As always, comments are welcomed, encouraged, and greatly appreciated.
Go Tangle !!
