Earth day 2015

Earth day (also known as Amanda day) is the challenge this week.  It's been a strange week this week. I almost feel like Alice falling down the rabbit hole. My husband had triple bypass surgery on Tuesday. I've had my tangling supplies with me but I couldn't focus on doing the challenge until yesterday. Thankfully my husband is recovering.

I used one of my hand colored tiles.  I had several to choose from but I ended up choosing the one that had the biggest flaw. I knew that when I finished the flaw would disappear.

I used my colored Micron pens in the 05 size. Shading was done with colored pencils and highlights with a white chalk pencil.

colored tile with just the string.


  1. That is absolutely gorgeous, Sue. You will be my inspiration this weekend to use a colored tile and some colored pencils. I haven't done that in quite awhile. (I love the little touches of white...elegant,)

  2. This is so beautiful Sue, I love the colours! The tangle at 7:00 is new to me, what is it called? Sending healing energy to your husband and you. Tangling is a wonderful way to release the worry!

    1. Thanks Joey, the tangle pattern you are looking for is Jilli. The step out is on my blog. Look under the tab for Tangle pattern gallery.

  4. I feel good just looking at this !

  5. Wow, Sue, you've really had a rough couple of weeks. Glad your hubby is mending and your grandaughter too! Please be kind to yourself and get lots of rest and vitamin C. Your Earth/Amanda Day creation is fabulous...I love the tangle toward the bottom to the left of 6 o'clock. Could you tell me what that is? Very cool and one of my favorite colors too!

  6. This is amazingly, such an inspiration!

  7. A very lovely and beautiful tile. Hard times for you and your family and I'm pleased for you that your husband is on the way back to 'normal'. Take care!!

  8. Lovely as always, Sue. Beautiful colors. I hope your husband is recovering quickly and easily from his bypass.

  9. I wish my flawed tiles looked this flawless. Wishing your husband a speedy recovery. Godspeed to you and your family.
