Although it’s gotten a bit quiet here again, I’ve been quite productive when it comes to tangl-ING since I last posted here. I have no idea why, it just keeps on pour-ING out of me and is such fun since I’m gett-ING closer to the look I’d love to get to. Which is great! I still have a lot to learn, but right now it’s such fun to just tangle and tangle and tangle. Although I’m a bit worried when it comes to shading: Who is go-ING to shade all those pieces and when?? Shading is fine, but drawing is just so much more fun for me (right now and in general) that I skip that part for most artwork and simply start another piece.. Shame on me! 😉
I guess that by now you’re wonder-ING why I’m writ-ING in such a strange way? Well, when I read that the tangle ING is this week’s Diva Challenge Laura Harms had prepared for the tangl-ING world, I just knew I had to play. I really like ING although I hardly use it in my work – I wonder why? Maybe from now on it’ll show up more often because once I started tangl-ING, I just couldn’t stop! ING is such an addictive and really cool tangle that offers so much space for variations. If you haven’t already tried it, please do! This tangle really deserves to be tangled more often.
Here are my contributions for this week’s challenge:
I actually wanted to make a monotangle with ING and different fill-INGs (here: Tripoli, something I invented as a fill-ING, Paradox, DL Sunray, Munchin and Hypnotic), but it felt a bit empty… Then Zedbra crept in, then Printemps and Tipple – then I could finally stop. I noticed I have a tendency to clutter my work and don’t know when to stop… ^^;
This is a good example of me clutter-ING… I tried to overlap, but to me it looks only cluttered, too full of to much detail and the effect I wanted to get, which is that ING is sucked towards the center, is not eally visible. In the actual tile it looks even more like that than here. Maybe that’s because it is a scan? I don’t know but I hope that Eni Oken’s new ebook on Overlapp-ING will help me to improve here!
Tangles used: ING, Printemps, Flux, Tipple, Cubine, Paradox, DL Sunray, and some fragments I invented.
Here I tried the exact different th-ING than with the last tile, ING was supposed grow from one spot in a star-like shape. I think I like this tile best, it’s not cluttered and has some interst-ING contrasts and fill-INGs – especially like that triangle-fill-ING in the lower left! Only now I noticed taht I forgot to shade Printemps. 😀 I’ll leave it like that, it’s not too bad like that. On this tile I used ING, Knightsbridge, Printemps, River, Zedbra, Paradox, DL Sunray and Tripoli.
If you liked my contributions I’d like to hear about that! And please do check out all the other great contributions tanglers from all the world have linked for the Diva Challenge!
Have a great week!
