Taking my inspiration from Linda, I created this piece that I am calling Tempest. I started with the darkened line first. It is a filled in Organza without any embellishment. I had thought I would go back and add to it later but I changed my mind. Then I added Verve behind it. In making Verve, I played with waving the lines more and varying the circles to see what would happen. I have to confess, this is probably one of my most favorite pieces and it's basically a monotangle. Anyway, it was a lot of fun to do and I wanted to share it.
Another thing that I have been trying to do with Verve it to find a way to connect circles one to another. I'm still working on it but I have done it a bit. In some places it is very Verve and then other bits it begins to look more like Auraknot. I think that you can see it a little in this Illuminated Letter I made. You can see it along the top. Like I said, a work in progress but I like how it looks. I did a Vortex-like bit in the circles there.
While there is more Verve to show, I'll just add one more image to this post. I wanted to give myself a challenge to use tangles in long, narrow pieces and see what I could come up with. I did a similar idea on an ATC and thought I'd take it a little larger. This one is on a 6" x 6" square. I also used some tangles that I haven't before and was plesantly surprised with how they came out. Coaster for example. I have not used it before. Why? I have no idea. I really like it and have seen it lots of places but I never tried it until then.
Well, I have had a long day of prepping for the Arden Fair and I am about to fall asleep sitting here. Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
