Sunday in Colour
Today was fun - all afternoon spent beading and then all evening spent tangling! In such a great environment I felt the need to bring out the pencil crayons and play a bit in colour. This is actually a tiny little tangle - it's done on an ATC (2.5 x 3.5 inches). This made for a challenge - to make an interesting string in such a constrained space, fill it with some pattern without overwhelming the tiny dimensions of the shapes, and then add colour, again without overpowering the entire composition. I found my brain blanked out (I do have an excuse - I was the teacher this afternoon!), and had my friend, Ruth, give me the name of a tangle and that's what would go in the next open space. It was actually a really fun way to fill a string. I made the string and did the artwork, but Ruth chose each pattern. It was like a collaboration with only one pair of working hands. Fun! Do you think it worked?
