Weekly Challenge #223: "Official Tangle - UMBLE"

Cette semaine le challenge est d'utiliser le Tangle officiel "Umble" de Rick et Maria


J'ai quelques difficultés à traduire l'anglais aussi je n'ai pas compris pourquoi ce tangle était à la fois ancien et nouveau. Carl Sultanik l'a utilisé dans le précédent challenge et je l'ai découvert ainsi. j'ai fait différents essais en utilisant diverses techniques j'ai fait deux dessins en noir et blanc, le premier me semblait trop chargé. j'ai essayé un dessin en couleur avec des crayons feutres. en dernier je me suis servi des limites extérieures de chaque arc comme fil conducteur et j'ai expérimenté le crayon aquarellable pour l'arrière-plan.

This week the challenge is to use the official Rick and Maria's "Umble" tangle. 

I have some difficulties in translating English so I do not understand why this tangle was both old and new. Cari Sultanik used it in the previous challenge and I discovered it for the first time. I did various tests using various techniques I made two drawings in black and white, the first one seemed too overloaded. I tried a color drawing with markers. last I used the outer limits of each arc as thread and I experienced the watercolor pencil for background.





Thank you for tour comments.

Weekly Challenge #222: "Colours of the Rainbow!"


This week Diva's challenge is to use multi colours - "use 'em if you got 'em!" .

As the diva I used gel pens (SIGNO) on a black paper. With gel pens I always feel a little limited because lines cannot be as fine as i would like and I do not know how to make shadows.




Thank you for your comments which are every time so encouraging!

Weekly Challenge #221: "Beads of Courage"



This week the DIVA Challenge 's theme is inspired by beads of Courage.

Beads of Courage is an Arts in Medicine that supports kids with chronic or life threatening illnesses and their families. These kids are amazing. And they more often than not have to deal with a lot on a daily basis. They see a lot of doctors, and on this program instead of getting a sticker or a lollipop for getting a needle or an X-Ray, or a test of some kind, they'd get a glass bead to represent that part of their medical journey.

We can use beads as inspiration for our string, or for inspiration for our tangles,


So to celebrate the great courage of Artoo , the children as him and their parents I drew a very big bead more precious than a glass bead because it is about a beard of tangles.
