Love the new tangle! I wanted to share with you that I have finished all the previous challenges...what a fun journey! it is cool to see my progression in the last 4 months, thank you for the opportunity!
Adele, I just LOVE your new tangle. So much fun to play with.Tangle frame.
Here's my entry for IAST 194.I enjoyed working on Trella. I'm busy, though, so I couldn't spend as much time on it as I would have liked to. I like my Trella here and I managed to cover up a misdirected Trella and draw more of it in white too! This was one tile that didn't give me too much heartache, thought I still haven't gotten there! Probably I'm very relieved that I managed to salvage a good tile gone wrong!
I'm enjoying your photos from your trip to Fabriano, and can't wait to see more.
I also am enjoying using Trella, in fact, and this is a first for me, I did two versions of this week's challenge. My first was the black and white tile which I felt needed something more. I considered using more dramatic shading, but I worried about ruining it. So I tried another version in my watercolor sketchbook. Over all, I'm pleased with my results.I hope you're having a great week and I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's #194.
Thank you for all the souvenirs you are sharing from your trip to Italy. Here my tile for IAST 194. Trella was new to me, although it’s similar to how I use to draw Opus. I tried to draw water droplets instead of the mooka-like leaves. But I’m afraid they are a bit too flimsy. I could give them some weight by adding the black pearls. I hope they are visible on the photo. I really enjoyed this challenge. Thank you.
Hello fellow tanglers,
Although not happy with this result at all, I still decided to share it with you all.
Maybe I was to much in a hurry to come up with something more appealing.Never mind, thanks for all the work you do and the photos of Italy
I draw the strings on a square tile and then I cut out a triangle and painted the background with watercolours. The strings dissappeared in N'Zeppel.
When the drawing was ready, I also used some ordinary colourpencils to become a bit stronger colours.
I like Trella very much, it offers a lot of possibilties to make variations.
Thank you for this lovely challenge and I wish you a nice, sunny weekend.Warm regards from Belgium
Thank you for sharing your new tangle. I used it as a border with some little individuals as well. When deciding which way up the tile should be, it really looked best to me standing on a corner. So here it is along with the complementary pattern on my garden table!
Loved the tangles for the week (some of my faves) but not really loving how they came together for me. Oh well, still had a good relaxing time creating it which if the most important to me.
Thank you again for all the work you do on this. I really do love to see everyones work.
Thanks so much for Trella. It is a fun tangle and I really enjoyed playing around with it. The blue one I did first, but as soon as I had it finished and made my “DONE” hook at item “IAST 194” that the idea hit me, to draw Trella just to one side – like a droopy willow branch. So out came all my tools again and the result is now 2 hooks at item IAST 194.
Adele your pictures of Italy were beautiful and that hotel room was to die for! That is a wonderful husband you have there. How nice you named Trella after your granddaughter Ella. Here is my version of it.
First of all; thank you for the warm welcome after IAST 192! Unfortunately I missed last weeks challenge due to our vacation. Today we came home and I found this challenge. I hope I’m still in time to participate. Your new tangle Trella is lovely! I will probably end up using it more often. Thanks for sharing.
here is my entry for this week.
It was a brilliant combination of three wonderful patterns.Greetings from Germany
My contribution to this week's challenge. I had fun using your new
tangle, also N'Zeppel which is one of my favourites. I'm so pleased
that you had such a good time on your visit to Italy - so many beautifulplaces to see, and Rome, my favourite city!
Woke up in the night and couldn't get back to sleep so I ended up
tangling a different version of the tile I did yesterday. I know I've
already sent you my contribution but thought you might like to see this
much more 'dramatic' middle of the night version. No shading - tired
I'm usually a black and white tangle person, but this was too busy to just shade. I used Derwent Inktense pencils. I love the way the colors pop when you add water to them.
Hello Adele! I am sure enjoying your posts about Fabriano! I can almost feel giddy along with you in the enjoyment of so much wonderful paper!
Here's my Trella Tile...I started my tile (first tile), shown last, but I stopped after adding Florz and shading it. It looked good but as I was thinking about whether or not to add a fill in the blank florz squares, I began to wonder if Trella would work as a fragment in a reticulum. So, I played with it in a grid and came up with some variations for the grid, though I'm not sure they could be classified as fragments. Since it's a new pattern I thought you might be interested in seeing the grid tile and the first tile, but the offical one to post is first here.
I really enjoyed my Trella journey so thanks for the great pattern, and challenge! I hope Trella is a smashing success!
so unhappy to have less time to tangle. But your challenge is a "must-do" for me. Trella is a unknown pattern and I needed a bit exercises. And here is my tile for today.
Wish you and and all the people outside a wonderful spring.
I love hearing about your fabulous trip to Italy!
I wasn't able to send my Lily tile in time due to a bout of stomach flu last weekend. I've included it here if you choose to share. Like others, I'm a big fan of Lily's work and was sorry to hear about her family situation. Sending her peaceful thoughts!
I'm also sending my tile for this week. Your new tangle, Trella, yielded lots of good design possibilities. Cheers!
Your photos and stories from Italy are wonderful! It is taking me back to my honeymoon, which was 11 years ago last week. I told my husband about your trip and he said, “Well then I will have to take you there too.” Not sure when, but I am hoping to sign that guest book too!
Can’t wait to see more. Your dinner date is a real keeper :o)
So glad you had a wonderful time and are home safely. Here is my tile with your beautiful new pattern.
Sending warm greetings from New York!
Another lovely new pattern, Adele, full of grace, whimsy, and endless embellishment potential. Looking forward to a week with a whole lot less crazy-making so I can play with it properly.Hoping all you Moms had a Happy Mother's Day.
I hope this is not too late for submission. Was done with rose micron and chalk pencils.
I'm on the road this week but was glad I still found some time to tangle and finish a tile for your latest challenge. Love your tangle Trella. I'm also loving the pictures of your Italy trip. Keep them coming! And, Happy Mother's Day on Sunday!
Here comes my entry. I liked the pattern Trella a lot! I used it with N´Zeppel and Flukes.
You seemed to have a gorgeous journey in Italy. Very interesting to read about your trip and experiences of Fabriano. As I came out as a painter after finishing artschool, I was working much with watercolor. I love the Fabriano-paper and lot´s of my watercolors are made on Fabriano!
I really love organic tangles so this one will be one of my faves. It was fun to do the tried and true ones as well. Happy Mothers Day Adele! Am loving your Italy trip stories and pictures; thanks for sharing them!
Happy Mother's Day to you and all!
What a splash Trella made with a cannon ball jump right into my list of favorite tangles!
From lower right, I began with the original version ... to the lower left I added Fescu ... upper left I added many branches in Verdigogh-style ... upper right I made crazy eight leaves ... then I added shading to draw attention to Trella variations.A huge thank you for and cheers to Trella!
I enjoyed #trella. Added #florz & #munchin. Also did fragment H-5 to fill in the #florz. Fun challenge! Thank you!
Here are my tiles for IAST194. I made 2 tiles (the third one is in progress). I absolutely love Trella. So many ways to draw it. I am definitely going to be using it a lot.
Happy congratulations on your newest tangle Trella. Love, love this organic tangle and it was so fun to play with it! But I have to practice a bit more.
I love to read about your wonderful Italian adventure. I am looking forward to what's coming more. Thank you for sharing!!!
In the attachment my IAST # 194 tile for this week.
Well, I hope you are still enjoying all the sweet and delightful memories you came home with from Italy.
This week's challenge was wonderful because your new pattern Trella is fabulous and flows right out of the pen... if the tile had not just been 3,4 x 3,4 I would have gone on and on and on. It bears so many possibilities for filling, enhancing and shading! Thank you so much for your stepout, too.
Thank you, Adele, for another delightful tangle, your Granddaughter must be proud to have such a lovely tangle named after her.
It was a pleasure to work with.
