Challenge #168 - Tangelation Nation - Rain and Others

Rain tangelations, with Hollibaugh, shading, White Gel Pen,
Beadz, and lot's of Auras!
This weeks Diva's challenge is #168! I can't believe I've been out of the challenge loop for so long. I've been working on stuff just not posting or participating. It feels good to be back in the fold again.
This week is Laura's birthday and she chose Tangleation Nation to celebrate her birthday week with  "RAIN" and all the fun tangleations we can come up with. What a lovely way to celebrate and a Happy B-Day to the Diva.

Rain is a very simple tangle that lends itself beautifully to oh so many tangleations.

I chose to play up the curves and Aura the heck out of Rain. It turned out taking on a pointy little Crescent Moon flair in the main focus area. Straight lines are not my thing, but these little triangles allow themselves to bend and morph into lovely organic shapes. It feels like it's spinning into the atmosphere.

I used some wonderful tan paper I found at our recycle place in the area called the Scrap Box. Companies and individual donate all kinds of kool stuff. You can buy paper by the inch and it's quite a deal. Whenever I visit the Scrap Box I have my trusty Microns in hand to test the quality of the papers available. This paper has the rich look of the Zentangle Renaissance Tiles and I love the subtle way my white Gel Pen adds luster and pop. I want to get some sepia pens and start playing with that on tan papers and Renaissance tiles. This just adds one more dimension to the black and white.

  2. Daniele, I can just feel the power of your "Rain" and feel the energy coming off your piece. You did a great job portraying your feelings here. I am sorry I already posted my comments and realized I posted them under the wrong weekly challenge. I love your work. Very expressive. from Duane.

  12. I like the "Exploding" leaf, and how you transformed the "rain" pattern in such a nice way. The overall visual effect - beautiful

  13. This looks great on your tan paper. I like the auras that you did. It has a more connected feel to it. Your white highlighting adds so much.

  14. I love the swirl feeling of your tangle. The Scrap Box sounds like a wonderful place. Imagine being able to buy paper by the inch. I'd love to have someplace like that close to me.

  17. It's a beautiful tile with such lovely choices of shading and white. I love the tangleation of Rain you did. It's hard and sharp on the interior portion and soft and flowing at the outside edge. Such a wonderful contrast!
