Opdracht vijf bracht ons weer een stukje dichter bij het eindresultaat en dwong mij om een nieuwe tangle te integreren. Muscari is een leuk en gemakkelijk patroontje.  Deze middelste tegel van de negen was iets moeilijker omdat hierop alle andere acht aansluiten. Ik heb bewust  geen nieuwe tangles gekozen omdat het anders te druk zou worden maar ben verder gegaan met degenen die al op andere tegels voorkwamen. Muscari vormt het centrum van het hele werk en kreeg een beetje extra kleur en schaduw… Op naar de volgende!

The fifth challenge brought us again a little bit more to the final result and did me use a new tangle: Muscari, a nice and easy pattern. This tile, in the middle of the nine was for me a bit more difficult than the others because the other eight ones have contact with this tile. I didn’t chose for new tangles, it would be a bit crowdy but I went further with patterns, used before.  Muscari is the middle of the whole work and I gave this nice tangle a little bit extra colour and a touch of shadow… I’m ready for the next one!

      Merçi Chantal, parfois le dessiner va très facile, parfois c’est plus difficile, cette “challenge” a tout et on apprend quelques nouveaux motifs, très agréable!

    This is so wonderful Ria! I know Muscari was difficult to add but you have mastered it! It has been so fun watching another tile get added each week!

      Thank you Joey for your kind words. Sometimes, drawing goes very easy, sometimes we had to come out of our comfortzone. This challenge has everthing and therefore I like it and it is very pleasant to learn new tangles too, I have never seen Muscari before but in fact it is a beautiful tangle with lots of possibilities!

      Thank you Anita, I enjoyed every tile of this project, although I have to admit I had some problems with this one, right in the middle of the whole work, every other tile has some connection with this one but I was glad with Muscari, a lovely pattern that I didn’t know and gave many possibilities to make a nice “heart” of the whole plate!

      Thank you Gudrun for this nice comment. The middle is important and the eyecatcher, I’m glad you like my result. (not so easy as the other tiles)
      A few miniutes ago I saw yours appearing and it looks great, your Muscari (with leaves) is wonderful “blowing in the wind” I love it!!!

    Oh Ria, Can it get any more beautiful?! It is so delicate, so airy, so light, so elegant…you must hang it on the wall when finished so all your visitors can admire it.

      Thank you very much Susie. I’m glad you like this tile and I admit this one, right in the middle, gave me a bit difficulties because I had to find a connection with all the other tiles. I think I will leave an open space in the centre of my “plate”

    Your swinging Muscari colored in soft green in combination to the band of pink pearls looks like springtime. I like your soft coloring and the wonderful way you use the given patterns. Your mosaic will develop to a elegant vibrant work of art.
