Ok…so Spring Break is over and there is only another 4 weeks of school. That’s right campers…4 more weeks! I graduate on May 15th and I can resume my life!
I got on board with this week’s Diva Challenge (#212: Use My Tangle – Fanz by Susan Goetter) in a rather weird way. I was testing out a new pen (Tombow MonoTwin) on pink Strathmore Artagain paper…and I initially started with the much fatter end (and was really hating how fat the lines were coming out…duh!) Also, it is an “oil based” marker, so it’s a bleeder! It bled even further through the back of the paper when I did my spray fixative on it. But I cannot say I am displeased with the final result…it looks pretty cool.
Tangles are Fanz, Narwal, Flux, Knightsbridge, Tipple, and Heartburn. I should have the step outs for Heartburn (my first tangle) posted soon.
And I did get Diva Challenge #210: Spiral String finished. Colors a bit wonky for me, I used only the items from this months Art Snacks (http://www.artsnacks.co) box. It is a monotangle of Heartburn. On Fabriano Medioevalis paper (4.7 x 4.7). This paper is really kinda cool, and comes in pre-cut sizes of flat and folded cards with matching envelopes available. I found it rather cool to tangle on, and I love the deckled edges. Dick Blick carries it, so do most actual art supply stores (not Michaels.)
