Weekly Challenge #290 „Duotangle: ‚NZeppel vs Flux“

This weeks challenge #290 is a Duotangle using Flux and ‚Nzeppel. Even though it is not always easy to be limited in only two tangles, for me Flux and ‚Nzeppel work out together very well. Since I spend a lot of time in the garden right now, there where stones and plants in my mind while I tangled my Zendala tile, also a very well balanced composition in nature. So as almost every time I had the need to color my tangle. I used some watercolors and watercolor pencils and tried to be a little more detailed in shading, which is not so easy for me, I love to be more abstract and intuitive with colors rather than detailed. But it was very calming after a long and lovely gardening day!

So have a nice sunday and thanks for stopping by.

Weekly Challenge #289: „Leafy Goodness“

Now in Northern Germany autumn has arrived, it is getting colder and the trees are wearing their beautiful leaf dresses in all shades of red and yellow colors. It looks fantanstic, I love that time of the year.

So this week’s challenge #289 is a Leaf/Autumn theme. I started to collect some leafs from our trees in the garden. They were all so beautiful and unique in their shapes and colors , that I couldn’t decide wich one to use for my tile. I was so attached by the colors, more than the shapes, that I decided not to choose a leaf for tangling, but tangling a leaf, or two or more;) In the end of the evening I had a nice variety of tangled leafs. I arranged them in my big cooperbowl at the fireplace, where in the summertimes some of my roses are for decoration and now tangles leafs in autumn.

I wish everyone a nice autumn time with lots of sunshine and golden landscapes. Enjoy!!

Weekly Challenge #288: „Simply Gourdgeous“

time flies. We already moved 5 month ago in our new home, but it is so much to do – it almost feels like 5 weeks. My blog fell a little bit in sleep, I guess. But now it is time to wake up. So  In honour of thanksgiving this week’s challenge #288 is to tangle Gourdgeous – an official tangle by Maria Thomas.

Since autumn has arrived with all its beautiful and warm colors, I decided to color my tile before tangling. So I used some watercolors and I felt that I had to try some pigments on it to, unfortunately they turned out very dark so the nice bright watercolor background looks a little dark and dirty now. But I still tried to work with it – and since Gourdgeous is a contrasty tangle it could made its way in the foreground.

It is not one of my favorite tiles, but I had a nice and cosy evening tangling it. So I am pleased with my gourdgeous tile.

Thanks for stopping by and have a nice weekend!
