The Diva's Challenge - Week 18....Eggzzzzzzzzellent!

Finally actually writing something to go along with these images! The first two are cards I've made for family members (inspired by the challenge, of course) and the decorative eggs are gifts for Easter too. The birdy egg is an ink stamp and I've just embellished it with some glitter glue - the other is hand drawn (as it that's not obvious, lol). the last two images are actually ones I did first and are a bit haphazard - I'm sorry I did the black grass on the multiple egg pic as I think it actually spoils it but....well....can't take it back once it's on there! :) Happy Easter to all and may you have a happy, safe and peaceful time with family and/or friends xxx

The Diva's Challenge - Week 17....15 Minutes of Fame!

This was a toughie as I'm a bit of a perfectionist so having to rush and not do things as neatly as I'd normally like to do was, indeed, a challenge. That said, it was good to feel a bit of freedom with it, knowing whatever came out of the 15 mins was it...finished or not....'perfect' or not.

I've only put the first one up so far as the 2nd one I did was pretty awful (so much for that freedom I just mentioned, lol)! I'll try to do another couple before the challenge closes but there's so much going on here it's hard to even find the 15 mins :)

Edit: 2nd one is now up (that is, technically, the 3rd

Variation on Winterberry with some colour thrown in. This only actually took 11 mins....due to no shading involved :)

The Diva's Challenge - Week 16....Mooka!

Oh, boy, make mine a Mooka! I love this tangle but didn't get as much time as I'd like to play with it - too many things getting in the a toddler, uni assignments and life in general!

It reminds me of a native plant here in Australia called a grevillia - I will endeavour to do more tangles of it and weave in the native plant thread.

For now, this is what I've done. Some will recognise the Mookafly from the recursion photo album on Kit's page ;)

The Diva's Challenge - Week 14....Walk the Line

Ok, here's my 1st attempt at this week's Diva Challenge.

The challenge is to use only straight lines - hard for me as I do SO love curves (although not the huge ones on my body!). I'm not sure if it's cheating to use Paradox, which, does only use straight lines....but the combination of the straight lines creates curves. Have I cheated?? :P
I will do another one that doesn't include Paradox curves, just in case.

I haven't shaded it at all, as yet, and I'm not sure I will. It may make it a bit closed in and dark....undecided at this point.

Edit: 3 more images added, with my first attempt very lightly shaded.
The glittery bit on the kite tangle is masking a right royal muck up, lol.

Diva's Challenge #13: Non-Dominatrix

Ok, this is a hard one! The challenge set for Tanglers this week was to create a tangle with our non-dominant hand. For me, it's my left.......and it was crazy-hard to do. Lots of fun though and I intend to try another one.....or two :)

* 2nd attempt now up and on a grander scale. I did really have fun with this and had to fight to stop picking up pens and pencils with my right hand :) A good learning experience! I've added a pic of both tangles, to give some perspective on size.

The Diva's Challenge - Week 12....Tangled up in Blue

This week's challenge........a touch of blue :)

These are a bit rushed as I only started the challenge today (Saturday). I chose a sea theme for a couple because that's what the colour blue makes me think of.....I love the sea....I love the colour blue :) The first here (only because I can't seem to move the damn thing to 3rd spot!) is some freehand leaves - just a simple pattern with some wispy bits here and there to jazz it up a bit.
