drawing outside the tile

  If you dropped by last week, then hello again~ Remember I created two watercolour flowers? I completed the pink one this week.

With some Tripoli in pink and purple. I'm not sure whether I should fill the entire paper with Tripolis or leave it as it is... Any thoughts on the matter? Let me know in the comments section below. :)

  In other news, I also posted new videos onto my YouTube channel. You can view my channel via this link.

  For Diva's challenge, I did a tile in my sketchbook.

  Here's how the full page looks like. I'm trying out this new thing where I extend the tangles out of their "tiles", and also try to connect different "tiles" together by entwining their tangles together. It takes some planning, but it's lots of fun.
I've discovered that one of my tangles, Naida, works really well as a leaf.
Step-outs to it via this link.

  Here's another page in my sketchbook. It's a W2 labyrinth. The idea is by Staub Korn. I shaded it with three different purple coloured pencils.

  And here's my submission for Joey's challenge.

  Lastly, here are some tiles I completed for Travelling Tangles.
June Dalde sent in all these pretty things. 

  And I finished the first tile. I actually really like that fern thing. It reminds me of Verdigogh, but without all the layering (although I'm quite sure if you had the patience, you definitely could layer the fern's leaves too). I added some colours to it with Prismacolor coloured pencils.

  And here's another tile... This one was sent from Franciose Lip. Unfortunately, I don't have a "before" picture. She did the pretty pink background, and the Flux on the bottom right; I added the Flux at the top left, and CC in the background.
The tangle "CC" is really starting to grow on me. I've used it in four different works just this week alone... I might have to teach it in one of my classes soon.

  As always, thank you for dropping by. Reading comments really brings a smile to my face, and suggestions are always appreciated. Until next week... Keep tangling!


  1. I like your work, especially the watercolor flowers, beautifull done!

  2. Hi, Stephanie, love all your tiles, but the W2 labyrinth? Truly amazing, such a great piece of work! As for the watercolor tile, if it were mine, I believe that I would leave it just the way it is, no more background needed. It's truly lovely.


  3. Love the one you did voor Joey's weekly challenge - truly exquisite! 😍
