And a final pic from the cheerful, unique garden of my friend Jacqueline!
An uncomplicated tile, just in black and white on a preprinted tile, which was very relaxing to draw.
Also drawing on Zendalatiles with preprinted strings in the form of a mandala, can be nice and relaxating. You just fill in the spaces between the lines with your favorite tangles. As an example, I have put a tan (Renaissance) and a black one.. These tiles are more sensitive to draw on, so you have to pay attention. But it is also true when you make a little “mistake” on a black tile, it is very easy to correct with a black pen.
To get some dry sunny days at the end of a cold and rainy summer is a real booster. For the last time, swimming outdoor, once again wearing that linen summerdress, eating a huge ice cream on a sunny terrace and of course, drawing relaxed in the shade of the trees until late in the evening…
I have used my brushes already several times to create a background, simply because I like watercolours. I wanted to know what the result would be on a black tile. It is very nice when the paint is still wet, but unfortunately very faint and dull when the paper is dry. My husband came up with the bright idea to throw a splash of liquid bleach on a black tile , to let this dry and then to start painting. I’ ve tried it that way and found the results promising. The logic I miss often, is complemented by the logic that my husband has in abundance. Thank you Rob for your support and enthusiasm.
Thanks to the great project of the travelingtiles, I can show you another nice example of collaboration with others, from all over the world. This time, I swapped with Sue Bailey from Australia. Take a look on her site and see her lovely selfmade cards and little boxes and discover the special name of her site.
I have never seen a gem on a tile in reality, so this was a nice surprise for me !!! Thank you very much Sue. I’m exercising now to learn that too!
Below, you see the finished tile where Sue has drawn this beautiful gem, surrounded by a border which ended with Crescent moon.
Here is the tile Sue has sent to me. She began with a lovely variation of Shattuck, Flux and a tiny ribbon, I did the rest…
And finally, this is the tile, I’ve sent to Sue. I didn’t use watercolors this time but I do like to use fragments. I’ ve started with a few, added a little colour and have drawn a few bows with Sez abough. Sue finished the tile in a wonderful, subtile way by filling the bows with beautiful tangles. I like the border where she has left some open spaces, that makes the tile more special. I’m fond of the final result.
Next time, I will publish again some others who still are on their way!!!
