This weeks challenge at I am the Diva is to use the new 2" x 2" tiles that have been named Bijou (similar to the format known elsewhere on the net as "Twinchies"). These little tiles are very addictive. Because I am used to drawing inchies, ( see here and here for some examples), the size was not really an issue for me. I enjoyed doing them immensely, as I really like the smaller format. (Mine are not on official tiles. All my drawing is done by measuring squares in my sketchbook. You'll have to take my word that they are the correct size.) Like a lot of others, I had trouble stopping at one!
Also like a lot of other participants, I had to get Bijou himself into the picture. I liked the idea of a garden (again as a number of others did - the first one I saw was by Susan Bowden -- hers is much better than mine. I didn't realize until I went back to look at it how similar it was and how I had used a lot of the same tangles-- sorry Susan). I used the tangles flux, poke root, poke leaf, angel fish, sprigs and chirps. Here is my first little jewel:
Next, I did a monotangle using a pattern new to me: Jasmin.
And finally, I did one using Purk and Fassett, two favourites.
That's all for now. Thanks for dropping by and thank you very much for the lovely comments you have been leaving. I really appreciate them.
P.S. If anyone leaves a comment could you please tell me whether or not you are asked to prove you are not a robot? I don't know how to check this myself and I'd rather not have it there, if it is.
