I am writing from another hotel room. It is a new semester and the concerts have begun. Such is the life of a mom whose kid is a musician. So here I am back in Bloomington for the second time in as many weeks.
Lately, I have been in a gem rut and all of my tiles end up looking like jewelry. This weeks Diva Challenge was to use the tangle Way Bop that I learned at ZenAgain last November. It is my absolute favorite tangle lately. I love how many ways you can draw it.
So, without further ado, here is my waybop broach.
But, it needs something.
Perhaps just shading.
But, there is all that white space…
And yet, I still wanted something. I thought I would take my blending stump and soften the mooka to try and push it further into the background.
DO NOT TRY TO SMUDGE WITH A WET BLENDING STUMP!
Unless you like a splotchy mess. Thank heavens for my sumo grip eraser. Cleaned up the whole mess and I decided to go with a light InkTense wash with white printemps.
This morning, I got together with a friend to tangle and did another.
Perhaps one day I will learn to draw a waybop that doesn’t steal all of the attention.
Or maybe not… what do you think?
