I managed to keep this tile really quite simple. Somthing that I have been trying to keep in mind. White space is ok and can even be your friend. I borrowed the string from tanglepatterns.com. Nothing was coming to me as I stared at the blank tile and then I remembered that Linda is collecting string ideas so I clicked over and found one. I also used Diva Dance for the first time. Well, for the first time in a completed drawing anyway. I wasn't sure about this at first but I have come to like it. All the patterns I ended up picking out all remind me of tree rings, at least they do here. Maybe Spring is trying to work its way into my brain. I know it's ready for some sunshine.
I also wanted to share with you the photo mat that I complete for the swap over on Facebook. It was quite a challenge to do but once I got going at it, I was able to get some bits that I am really proud of. I still need to spray it against smudging (not that there is a lot of pencil on it) and pop it into the mail. Luck for me the deadline is in March. I am HORRIBLE about getting stuff into the mail. Well, I should say horrible when I need to go to the post office. If I can print postage and mail it from home then I am not so bad. I tried on a few new tangles on this as well and that was a lot of fun.
I hope you have a great day!
