Thank you everyone for your well wishes in the last post, I am feeling well enough to participate in the festivities now. :)
Here’s my tile for Joey’s 48th challenge. The theme is polka dots, and we are to draw a tile with non-overlapping circles and fill them with tangles. I used Mak-rah-mee to outline three circles, then filled them in. I added some colour with watercolour pencils. It was my first time using colour in a tile and I still feel like there’s something missing. Does anyone have suggestions on how I could improve this? (Feel free to leave a comment even if you don’t have suggestions!)
The Diva’s Challenge this week was a UMT challenge involving an interesting tangle, Athitzi by Eleanor Holt. The pattern is just a series of short, parallel lines, but Eleanor produced a stunning effect in her tile.
I didn’t know where to go with this tangle, so I just drew a tile and incorporated Athitzi here and there. By my count Athitzi pops up 7 times in this tile. Can you find them all?
