Weekly Challenge #198: "K.I.S.S. (Keep it simple, silly!)"

Is the Last Challenge of 2014!



The DIVA Writes : "The first challenge ever posed here... the challenge to simplify. To keep it simple, silly.
How does this challenge speak to you. How can you translate that into your work? Will you simplify your string? Simplify your tangles?"

I decided to simplify the technique used : white pencil on black background which does not need to be shaded. I also limited the number of patterns and their complexity. I wanted a sense of calm, floating in the fight against environmental stress lately. It may also be the silent snow ...


j'ai décidé de simplifier la technique utilisée : crayon blanc sur fond noir qui ne nécessite pas d'être ombré. j'ai limité aussi le nombre de motifs et leur complexité. Je voulais une impression de calme, de flottement pour lutter contre le stress ambiant ces derniers temps. Ce peut être aussi la neige silencieuse...

 

Pour ce dernier challenge, je souhaite à tous de joyeuses fêtes de fin d'année. 
For this last challenge I wish you all a happy holiday season..

Weekly Challenge #197: "New Official Tangle - Arukas"



Each week the Diva on her blog puts out a challenge for fun.
This week's challenge is to use the new tangle "ARUKAS" in your tile or inspired piece.
At first I had some difficulties to draw this new pattern. I made a first drawing where the central star with branches of very different size.
I did a second test where the star is more regular. I wanted to make a tile with many stars but on the way I was wrong and my project was modified.

here is these two tiles.



What dou you think about it ?

Weekly DIVA Challenge #196: All Dolled Up



Each week the Diva on her blog puts out a challenge for folks. 
This week's challenge is brought by Emily Classon, CZT.

She invites us to be inspired by dolls like she has been. Awaken our inner child, and add some playtime to our tangling with a doll-shaped string, a tangled paper doll chain, or a tangled fabric doll.

Here is my drawing

I hope you enjoy this little doll.

Un peu gênée par la langue anglaise que je maîtrise mal je n'étais pas sûre d'avoir bien compris précisément ce qui était demandé. j'ai dessiné une poupée mais je n'ai pas l'habitude de dessiner des motifs aussi représentatifs
