Pop of Colour

It's raining!
Some stripy daisies to brighten up a wet day. I like the way diva dance swirls around like puddles of water.

Linking and Flowing

Connecting, linking and flowing tangles together can be quite a challenge. Once you have collected a good bank of tangles it's fun to play around and see which ones fit together. 

Remember to always draw you string with a pencil so you can cross over and flow easily.

This Renaissance Opus tile was quite an adventure, starting with a spiral of noom filled with a (hop-on-top) crescent moon which flowed into a tangleation of rixty tied together with mak-rah-mee which then linked into squill. Auraknot fitted into the space made by squill and a gem cyme flower balanced the shape on the other side. Tripoli then fitted into the petals. More mak-rah-mee with mooka ties and the rixty tangleation spills from the bottom right. The top border was actually drawn last.

Hope that explanation helps with your connections. Have fun!

For the highlights I used the gold Gelly-Roll pen and white charcoal pencil.

Earth Day



Where would the earth be without the glorious sunshine? No warmth, no growth, no life.
We have been extremely fortunate the last couple of weeks to have been able to enjoy the most wonderful autumn weather. I just had to pop outside to take this photo before the evening sun dipped below the hills.

Thank you sunshine!
Thank you Earth!

Coffee, Tea, or Me

The Diva's Weekly Challenge #312: "Coffee, Tea, or Me!"

Big decision ......coffee, tea or let's go spicy with some splotches of turmeric!
A quick paste of turmeric and water and splat, no splashes though, it was a bit thick. Love the colour, it reminded me of daisy centres so they blossomed into blooms just for the northern hemisphere spring.


This Opus tile was inspired by last weeks challenge of a circle and square string.
