Challenge #262 - UMT - Fassett by Lynn Mead

Fassett, Pearlz, Crescent Moon, Purkisms
The Diva's Challenge #262 is a UMT (Use My Tangle) Fassett by Lynn Mead. I've seen this tangle used often but never tried it. It's a great tangle that I will definitely be added to my mac and cheese go to's. Very versatile and the easy to do, has the feel of a structured / grid tangle but lends itself beautifully to the loosey goosey style I prefer.

I decided to go the monotangle route incorporating embellishments of Cresent Moon, lot's of Auras, Rounding, and some Purkisms. I like the balance of the the organic spheres within the architectural feel of Fassett. Fun, fun, fun!

I tried a second version today using Fassett with very different results. I left it ebb and flow and do as it wished... Blooming and growing with a few Mooka thrown in.

Version 2 - Blooming Fassett with Mooka adding the sepia pen
My second is much more delicate, not enough contrast. I used the sepia / brown Sakura 01 with the black micron. I think this would be fun to explore on a Renaissance tile and bump up the contrast.  I want to explore this further.

Thanks Lynn and Laura! Check out the other entries in this week's Diva Challenge.


  1. I love the little rounded off corners, tiny puddles of ink, and the shading variations. I see a few Owls in your crescent moons - maybe because I just finished H is for Hawk and I'm seeing raptor eyes everywhere.

  2. Beautiful tile. I love the shading and contrast.

  3. Like the shading that you did to achieve the dropped effect.

  4. I like Crescent Moon with Fassett. I did use that one too, with a very different outcome.

  5. Love your tile. Especially how you shaded fassett in the top right hand corner, to give that 3D effect

  6. I didn't see the first one as a monotangle until you told me! Love this tangle and love what you did with it on both tiles. Both so different .

  7. Merci pour votre commentaire sur mon blog malgré la date limite de ma publication.
    I prefer your first tile and its contrast, my tiles are often highly contrasting


Thanks for stopping by, I'd love to get your feedback.
