Een echte herfsttile is het geworden met deze leuke “pompoenen”. Gisteren heb ik bij Joey’s challenge de techniek ontdekt van “gescheurd” papier. Ik vond dat het een mooi resultaat kan geven en daarom heb ik beslist ook deze techniek vandaag  bij Laura te gebruiken. Naast het patroon Gourdgeous heb ik nog 2 gewone pompoentjes  getekend en Oke. Op de andere stukken zie je een variatie van mijn eigen patroontje Paravan. Ik heb deze keer met een hele dunne pen getekend (O,O5) en afgewerkt met gewone kleurpotloden.

With Gourdgeous, you become immediately a nice autumntile. Yesterday, I discovered “the thorn” paper technic and I liked that very much. So I decided to use this technic also on Laura’s challenge.. Beside Gourdgeous, I have also drawn two ordinary pumpkins and Oke. On the other pieces, I have put a variation of my own pattern Paravan. This time, I used a very thin pen (O,O5) and I finished the tile with ordinary color pencils.

    Ria, I love this. Your colors are beautiful. I had to go look up your pattern Paravan and I will make myself familiar with it. I like it. And the torn paper technique is great in this. Great tile!

      Thank you very much for this nice compliment Pat. I’m glad you like my pattern, a lot of variations are possible on this tangle and you can find the step-outs on
      The torn-paper technique was an Idea of Joey’s challenge and I liked it too immediately.

      Thank you very much for this nice compliment Jean. The thorn paper technique is not difficult, also for me, this was the first time and I liked this technique immediately because it can give a special accent on your tile.

    Rollende pompoenen..mooie herfsttile..Momenteel hebben we in de tuin heel veel pompoenen..mooi om naar te kijken tussen de andere herfstkleuren en lekker!
    Met een beetje fantasie is je Paravan het hekwerk in onze tuin waartussen de pompoenen liggen. Mooi werkje Ria ?

      Ria Matheussen says:

      Dank je wel voor de commentaar Maddy. Alhoewel Gourdgeous niet mijn favoriete tangle is, valt het resultaat nog mee, vooral door die “scheur techniek”, dat vind ik wel mooi en niet moeilijk en met Paravan kan je eigenlijk alle kanten op…
      Pompoensoep is niet alleen lekker en gezond maar bevat weinig caloriën, ik maak ze dan ook regelmatig klaar in dit seizoen, ook pompoenfritjes smaken best.

    Has a bit of a hallowe’en feel (not that we do that here), I like it very much!

      Ria Matheussen says:

      You are right Sue, I’d like to create a bit an autumntile, that must be very strange for you because in Australia it is Spring! Thank you for your nice comment.

      Thank you Nadine, I’ve seen this “thorn paper” for the first time on Joey’s challenge of this week. It is not difficult to draw and I like the effects.
      I’m glad you like this tile and also my pattern Paravan (you can do a lot of variations on it). Step outs are on tanglepatterns and Elatorium.
      Kind regards from Belgium too.
