Here, There, and Everywhere

"Let your thoughts meander towards a sea of ideas."   Leo D. Minnigh

Another week, another Diva challenge. This time the challenge was to use Rixty, the newest official tangle. When the tangle first came out, I played around with it a bit, but never actually put it into a tile. So this was my opportunity. Rixty is a fun tangle that can meander around in all directions. I love meandering tangles, but my trouble with them is that I don't know when to stop! I just keep going and going. On this tile I did just that, and then couldn't decide what else to put with it. So I started adding auras, and more auras, and more auras. And this is what I ended up with. Just Rixty and auras, and of course some shading.


Then I decided to add some color to it.


I used stardust gelly roll pens, but of course you can't see the shimmer because you never do unless you see the piece in person. And then I added some soft color in the background with Irojiten colored pencils. The verdict is still out on whether or not I really like it with color. One minute I think yes, and the next I think no. Oh well! I'd love to hear which way you like it better, black and white or color?

  1. That's why I always take pictures along the way. I love it with the color and without. With shading and without. We're a big both/and kind of a family, not either/or.

  7. I think the color is a great addition. While Rixty can be done in the traditional b/w I think it lends itself well to a little color.

  8. I really like the colour - it's subtle, but sill there, if you know what I mean
