Mi2! Challenge



When I first saw the tangle Mi2 by CZT Mimi Lempart I was fascinated. I copied all the steps down and added it to my notebook. I'm embarrassed to admit though, that I didn't do it in a tile. So when this challenge came up I was happy that it got me to really play around with the tangle. I decided I wanted to play with it using color. 

The first one uses a tile that I colored using a watercolor technique and my Tombow markers. The tangles were done with a colored Micron pen for the dark pink and a white gelly roll pen for the rest. Colored pencils did the shading.

For the second tile I tried doing it on a circle so that it could be used as an ornament. (It's only 5 months till Christmas!) I also tried being a little more careful in my spacing - Not so careful that it took away from the zen aspects though!

  3. These are wonderful. I love how the first tangle is so 3 dimensional and the color is great. The second one will make a terrific ornament. The white with the colors really pops.

  5. I think they are both beautiful. I am impressed with how even you got your wash with the first one using Tombow markers. I haven't mastered that smooth of a wash yet.

  7. Sue, on my Flickr page you asked me what a certain tangle is. Well, it's 'verve' by JJLaBarbera. Here is the link:

    Since I found it a short while ago, I use it a lot. I love it.

  9. I love what you did. The colors are so sparkling. The second tile seemed woven. How did you bring the depth in it? Is that what others call: it really pops?
