Colors of the Rainbow…

This week’s Diva Challenge was called “Colours of the Rainbow” and it was so much fun! Laura challenged us to colored paper, colored pens, colored pencils, water color, crayons – anything we’d like in honor of “Happy Pride Week.”   If I weren’t so busy this week I would love to do a series of tiles for this challenge.

For this week’s tile I use the tangleNymph” by Melinda Barlow.  I was cleaning up my computer files and came across this tangle that was saved but never used.  It is really fun to draw – especially if you like N’Zepple!  And in honor of the challenge each section is a different color of the rainbow.

Here is my tile:

Tangle: Nymph Colored with Prismacolor pencils

Tangle: Nymph
Colored with Prismacolor pencils

And now I’m off to see how others have used color for this challenge. And, I invite you to look at the submissions on the Diva Challenge blog. I hope you find these tiles as inspiring and educational as I do.

There are times that I would like to leave a comment on someone’s site but unless there is an option for name/URL I cannot.  I do not fit into the other categories.  Sorry!

As always, I am so grateful to all who leave me comments and if you leave a comment I will leave a response. Fair enough?  🙂   Your comments are a great source of encouragement and support.  To those who left comments last week, a huge THANK YOU!

Until next time,
Sending smiles,

  • Beautiful tile. I love Nzeppel so will have to give Nymph a try.

    • Thanks Dorita! In addition to the link in my blog text for the step-outs I saw today that Ellen Wolters just did a video showing how to do Nymph. Have fun! 🙂

  • I like your tile very much 🙂 So simple, yet so beautiful! I love using Nymph too – it is such a flexible, dramatic tangle…

    Have a great week!

    • Thank you Debbie. Nymph is a fun tangle, isn’t it? And I look forward to my week and all that I need to do. I appreciate the well wishes. 🙂

  • I’m not familiar with nymph, but it works really well for this challenge with your colors. In fact, I’m having trouble imagining it without colors. (I’m obviously not very imaginative 😉

    • Thanks, Suzanne. If you look at Ellen Wolter’s video she shows how to do Nymph and it is in black and white. The link is in the reply to Dorita’s comment for this tile (it is the first comment). When I practiced the tangle it cried for color to me too. And you know how much I love adding color. 🙂

  • I love Nymph! Nice to see how colours put something extra to them.

    • Thank you Ilse. It is great to find others who love Nymph. Do you find that you need a large space on your tile to use it? It is a monotangle because I couldn’t figure out a way to do it and have room for other tangles. I will admit that I am more of a structured tangler than an organic tangler and maybe this is the tangle to push me toward more organic work. 🙂 Thanks for your comments!

  • That´s really beautiful! I like your “Nymph”-flowers!

  • Wow, this is lovely and done so well.
