Wow, time flies, and I suddenly looked at the calendar and realized I’ve gotten behind on my postings. But things have been a bit crazy here, with driving home from Maine after our summer vacation, unpacking, recovering, and our biggest news–adopting a kitten!
Her name is Daphne, and neither words nor pictures can really capture how adorable she is. She’s clambering all over me purring as I type (or try to type)
Anyway, that’s all gotten in the way of my keeping up with my posts, so I’m catching up by posting last week’s challenge and this week’s in a single post. So here goes:
Diva Challenge #176: BYOB
I painted two tiles for this challenge, one for each of my favorite pick-me-ups:
With the coffee one, I used a paintbrush to spatter the tile, and the stain ended up as texture, which I really liked. With the tea tile, I dripped tea from the teabag, and ended up with these fun splotches, which just said “jellyfish” to me. I really had fun with this challenge, and I’m definitely tempted to try it again.
Diva Challenge #177: “Truffles
I really wasn’t sure whether I was going to like Truffles or not, but in the end I got into it. This is what I came up with:
I figured that while I was trying out someone else’s new tangle, I might take the tangle that I just created for a test drive, so I used it as a background.
If anyone’s interested in it, I’ll be posting the step-outs soon.
Have a great week, everyone!
Update: I’ve now posted the steps for my new tangle, which I’m calling Krish. You can find them here
