I hope everyone had a happy and safe New Year's eve! I'm glad though that everything is back to normal and we are ready to get moving on another year. The Diva is back with challenge #249 which is to use a duotangle of Auraknot and Diva Dance. I started the Auraknot and then began to "dance" the lines. When it was complete, it looked a bit empty so I gave the whole thing an aura and added more dancing around the tile. I also added a directional shadow.
Square One's focus tangle on Facebook this week was Umble. This is the one I turned in:
But I actually did this one first. It didn't look too Umbly to me though.
And, a new year for Every Inchie Monday. If you don't do these little gems yet, this is a good time to join us. This week's prompt word is Galaxy. What fun to go to Google and look up Galaxy. I found some unusual ones and selected one called NGC 474. The halo seems to be caused by collisions with other galaxies.I did a background using Color Bursts on white cardstock and then just used my square punch to select my favorite part to work on. I added some white gel pen, white paint pen, and white charcoal. Anything liquid does reactivate the Color Bursts though.
I'm also doing an art journaling group this year called Journal 52. Our first prompt was, word of the year. If you are a crafter/artist using lots of "stuff", you may enjoy my post about my word!
Thanks for stopping by. I love your comments. Happy New Year to all you!
