The challenge this week from guest challenger CZT, Amy Broady,
for i am the diva was B.Y.O.B.
I had a bit of a jump on this challenge, as it is something that I have experimented with before. I picked coffee and tea as my beverages of choice, as having tried one of my other favorites, found out it really didn’t give me much color to work with. I haven’t totally given up on it yet, but will need to try some different varieties to see if they will work any better! Here is my tile this week using tea and coffee. I finally figured out how to get them to give me, an intense color. I used the tangle Tripoli, based on a way that Molly verbally walked us through drawing it, at Tangle U this spring.
I have played with this before, and here are some of my first explorations using beverages on my tiles. I had a couple of “dead” tiles that didn’t work out, that I used. There was a serious science experiment going on in the kitchen with cups, bowls, and saucers filled with different types of tea and coffee. I let some of them evaporate to condense the tea, and also the coffee, and then started experimenting. You can see my first finished tile using this technique here. It was so fun to see it posted in the newsletter! Below are those first experiments.
I had a great time with this challenge, and you do need to check out the diva’s site and see some of the other work!
Thanks for visiting and if you leave a message, know that you make my day!
Have a great week and Tangle On!
