This week’s challenge was to use a white pen on black paper or, for those who did not have black tiles, to create a tangled piece on a found object.
I cut a tile using Strathmore’s black Artagain paper. Black tiles are not my favorite mainly due to the white gel pen. I used both the Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen and the Uniball Signo white gel pen. I like the whiteness of the Signo gel pen and the thinner line I get using the Sakura gel pen. I used the Sakura to draw the tangle and the Uniball to create the dots of tangle: B’Dylan and then colored over them with colored pencils. The tangleation of Paushalov is from the wonderful book, “Pattern Play” by Cris Letourneau and and Sonya Yencer. Of course, I had a lot of fun adding color to the tile. 🙂
Here is my tile for this challenge:
This is my first tile. On my next tile I want to make the oval for Paushalov wider and more egg shaped. Trying to do B’Dylan with the white gel pen is more of a challenge than using the Micron 01 pen. I’ll have to work with that on another black tile.
Tile #2: I decided to do another tile with Paushalov. This time I used Florz as the background.
Now that I have submitted my tile it is time to go to Laura’s blog to see how others interpreted the challenge. Who knows, I might even decide to embrace black tiles. I encourage you to look at the submissions too. What can you learn from these tiles?
As always, I am so grateful to all who leave me comments. They are a great source of encouragement and support. To those who left comments last week, I want to say, THANK YOU!
Until next time,
