I was very excited to see this week’s Diva Challenge: use Aquafleur. Not only do I love this tangle, but also CZT Romi Borax Marks just posted images from an Aquafleur class that was simply inspiring. Romi did a large Aquafleur as a string and tangled over a watercolor background.
Here is my version inspired by Romi. I traced a tile on some watercolor paper. I should have used a tile instead. Even though the paper was labeled watercolor, it buckled and pilled. Yuck.
Here it is after tangling:
I was inspired by this design carved into the back of the pews on Sunday.
After spending time deconstructing the pattern, I tried to use it as a border. Only then did I realized that it is really just a tangleation of tripoli. Oh, well.
And here is the finished piece, after shading with a light grey marker and highlighting with a white Signo pen.
Hope you enjoy Aquafleur this week.
