Op het eerste zicht leek dit een moeilijke challenge, maar niets is minder waar. De string is in feite heel gemakkelijk en Asian Fans is een mooie gemakkelijke tangle.  Van de krullen die Susie getekend had, heb ik een lint gemaakt. en ook mijn Asian Fans  is  ietsje anders. Verder tekende ik nog volgende patronen: Breach, Flux, Tamisolo, Zinger en N’Zeppel .  Ik heb voor deze challenge een mooie maar fragiele Renaissance tile genomen en naast wat zachtere kleuren ook gekozen voor een beetje “flashy” groen omdat Susie ook graag heldere kleuren gebruikt. Dank je wel Susie voor deze bijzondere uitdaging!

At first sight, this challenge seemed a bit difficult, but it is not true. In fact the string is very easy to draw and Asian Fans is a beautiful and easy tangle. I have made a kind of ribbon instead of Susie’s curls an also my Asian Fans looks a bit different. I have chosen to finisih this fragile Renaissance tile with Breach, Flux, Tamisolo, Zinger and N’ Zeppel. On this kind of tiles, colors look great and I have used soft ones but also a lttle bit of “flashy” green because I see very often beautiful flashy colors in Susie’s work. Thank you very much for this interesting challenge!

    Wow! I love this Ria! Your colors are so elegant and I love how you did Breach. I’m going to have to look that up. I seem to recall it passing by my radar but it didn’t stick. Beautifully executed;-)

      Thank you Michele for this wonderful compliment, makes me always glad to get feedback from you.
      I’m not sure but I think I found Breach by coincidence on Pinterest. There are thousands of pics, too much to remember them all! I only choose favorite ones to put in my personal legend. Breach was such a tangle, I liked at first sight: easy, nice and with lots of possibilities.

      Dank je wel Ilse, ik apprecieer je commentaar heel erg en ja, ik ben natuurlijk blij dat het weer wat beter gaat. Ik doe elke dag een kwartiertje oefeningen met Ned beweegt voor mijn computer.

    Oh Ria, your whole tile looks so beautifully delicate. Your ribbon reminded me of the tangle Organza – flowing in the wind. I especially love what you did with Asian Fans. I forgot to mention that you can draw Asian Fans any way you like, of course!!! Because I often alter a tangle chosen in a challenge, the remark just slipped my mind. I am so glad you stepped in once again. Jeez, am I glad I have you on MY side. LOL!!! Beautiful, gorgeous tile, Ria, drawn, shaded and colored masterfully as you always do!!! Thanks so much for participating on my challenge. XOXO

      I use those ribbons many times, I like to draw them and it is so easy to create another space to fill. I’m glad you like the result.
      Asian Fans was the first time I have used and it is a fun one. My favorite tiles are the tan ones, the colors look always nice but they are really delicate, so no use of an erraser! After I have drawn Asian Fans I thought about a kind of “flowery” pattern abough. Your Afterglow looks great in that composition, so I took a look in my personal legend and found Breach. This easy lovely pattern was there for months but I have never used it until now. For me this was a fine challenge with (for me) two new tangles.
      I’m very curious to see the contributions of the others!

        I am glad you liked the challenge and the tangle. Breach, huh? I had a look at the step out. You are right, it looks interesting. Maybe…just maybe…I will also give it a try. Thanks for the finger pointer, Ria.

          Breach is a very uncomplicated tangle with lots of possibilities.
          There are so many tangles, I am at the age that I’m starting to forget some of them (LOL), but the ones I like, I have drawn in a personal legend. When there comes at challenge, I just take a look on this legend to choose one of the favorite ones to add!
