Diva 101...sounds like a beginners class...lol

...and I am beginning with my first monotangle.   Almost mono anyway, as I put a 'net' behind the tangle to hold it all together.  LOVE this new tangle and decided a good way to cement it into my head was do it over and over.  I also had just received my first set of metalic gel pens and gave them a little try on the extra stripes I added to the shells.  I don't see the shine in the scan, but in real life it has a nice metalic glow when it hits the light right.  Gonna have to use them more in the near future.


Hope I did B-rad's new and fun pattern justice...  So nice to have the diva back and throwing new ideas at us.  Been working on a larger pic, 11 x 14" so I am behind on the challenges again.  

I'm off to get my new permanent glasses for after the cataract surgery.  It seems like this whole deal has taken forever and I am glad to be getting the right glasses finally.  I am getting tired of switching glasses for computer to glasses for drawing, back to computer ones for reading and getting instructions on food items when I make supper (I'm a microwave diva...lol)

Of course you did justice to "Phicops"! It is lovely!

This is lovely, color scares me a bit but u have inspired me ! .... I am hearing u about the glasses, I have permanent glasses now and it's so freeing not having to look for and carry around multiple pairs of glasses... My only problem now is reading the labels on the Shampoo and Conditioner bottles in the shower without mixing them up !

Your tile is so beautiful. I like the net behind it.
I have glasses for closeby and faraway in one, but when I'm tangling I use an other one, hust for reading (and drawing).

Great job. Like the addition of the color for variety.

Sue said...

Very pretty and I'm sure with the metallic shine your phicops looks effervescent!

Your tile turned out lovely, the colors are soft and really add to the design. I like your net.

Love the net behind it, the extra vertical stripe and great shading.
