Ok…this weeks Diva Challenge (#206) asked us to use something you don’t normally use, or expand our horizons. I had it all planned out…the huge piece of beautiful Rosapina has been on my work table for weeks, I have it all planned out in my head. I started it…and it is now cut up into smaller tiles, as it really didn’t work out the way I wanted it. (tried rubber-stamping words…not a good idea while you are on a conference call…)
So…I reverted to something else I figured as a semi-failed attempt a while back. I watercolored a few errant pieces of water color paper with the salt process and some cool Niji pearlescent watercolors, and when they were done, I didn’t know what to do with them. They were so pretty, they intimidated me. So, I whipped out the least intimidating one (purple and grey) and the associated Tombows, and tangled away. I just got my Tombow markers recently, and haven’t really used them much, and I have never really shaded with color, so this was a grand experiment.
I did mount it on a black tile, I thought it looked nicer.
Squeaking in under the wire…and back to homework.
Stay Crazy My Friends!

Wow, I like this tile a lot, the left corner is so very beautiful and has great depth.
I agree, the left corner attracts they eye with its dimension. you have nice gradation on your shading with color. I had to look up rosapina. Sounds fab. what will you do with it? I'm sure you'll come up with something!
I cut it up into tiles and book marks, and tossed out the horrible printing I tried with rubber stamps. I really need to practice that technique a bit more. I kind of inherited a crap ton of stamps lately…
