A Quick Diva Challenge with Fassets

I’ve been crazy busy working on the Renaissance book, and the A-to-Z blog challenge, and life in general. I wasn’t going to participate in the diva challenge this week, but I really love the tangle fassets so I thought I would do a quick one.


As you can tell, I’m still playing with last week’s challenge of stacking Bijou. For this one, I cut slits into a Strathmore Artist tile to insert my Bijou.

Here is the finished piece. Sorry I forgot to take more in process pictures.

I also did another stacked Bijou. I had another frame. What else could I do?

  1. That additional stacked tile is gorgeous. I kind of punted last week doing a faux stack, but seeing yours in a frame, I’m inspired to gather up the proper materials to try a real one. Your Fassets are also inspiring.

  2. Love your Renaissance Fassett tile, it looks great in those colours. That new stack looks really shiny and a great frame for the bijou tile.

    1. Thanks. I made it to go with last week’s, but even though I used the exact same materials, I don’t think they look good together. It almost looks like they were done by different people. I guess I should have had the first one for reference!

  3. Fassett tends to look good in other hands than mine, I’m afraid. However, when I see your stacked tiles, I really want to do more. And I just happen to have a couple of frames crying out to be filled.

  4. Such lovely tiles! I’m glad you finished the stack for your second frame. Those are the kind of projects that languish on the to-do list if not done promptly (at least for me). So well done you!

  5. Magratscraft: We are all most critical of our own work. It can be beautiful without being “tidy”. Take a look at Carole Ohl’s art. (Her blog is openseedarts) to see what I mean. But if you prefer the tidy look, there are some tips that might help:

    -Slow down
    -Draw straight lines from top to bottom
    -When drawing auras, it helps to imagine that you are drawing a white line, and the pen is just outlining that.
    -Draw so that your hand/pen is not blocking your view. I.e. If you’re right/handed, draw auras on the right side, turning the tile as needed.

    Hope that helps.

  6. Nice body of work. I was not going to do this one either but really like this tangle also. I did pass on the stacked challenge. Knew that was going to take more time than I have right now. The way that yours looks.
