Diva-Challenge # 181 - Water

This weeks' Diva's challenge is about "water". I wanted to make a coloured background for my first time and I made it with a blue and a teal ink-pad. I didn't know how the patterns would affect on such a turbulent background. Some parts I coloured with a brown pencil.

I don't like this tile very much. I think it's too agitated. Perhaps I'll try it next time with a smoother background, but I still prefer a black and white tile with some coloured highlights :-)

These are the patterns I used:
Drip-Drop by Debbie Perdue
Sand Swirl by Karry Heun
SeZ by Zentangle
Shiraz by Linda Farmer

Have a good time and tangle on!


  1. I do like the colors you used. I think they are very soothing to the eye. Nice work!

  2. very pretty swirling waterscape. I especially like the 'sand' in he bottom right corner

  3. I think you did a great job, Myself I am playing with watercolors too, and what I think is great to use serveral colors on the backgrond, making serveral spaces, and then use the color borders as string for my tangles, always a surprising effect.

  4. I think this is a lovely tile. Like the idea of doing the background with an ink pad.

  5. I think you will love this - give it time. I think it's imaginative and wonderful.

  6. You might be too hard on yourself because your tile is actually quite beautiful and very interesting! Nice work!

    Happy tangling,

  7. You are too hard on yourself, this tile is beautiful and not too agitated at all.

  8. I really like that you created that beach idea in your tile. It's a great one!

  9. this reminds me of a seashore, with the waves coming in fast and a bit turbulent. It's a very active piece, and I like it a lot.

  10. This tile is beautiful, your colors are great.

  11. Also ehrlich ... sei nicht so hart mit dir! Ich finde dieses Stück toll! Es macht Spaß mit Farben zu experimentieren ... lass es zu ... auch wenn nicht genau das herauskommt, was du dir vorgestellt hast! Wichtig ist, dass es dir Spaß macht und du auch zur Ruhe beim Tangeln kommst! Nur das zählt!

    1. Stimmt auch wieder... danke dir, Spaß hatte ich auf jeden Fall dabei :)

  12. I agree with the others that the background and color really did turn out well. I think at times that if we are doing something new we react more to our nervousness about that then what actually occurs. Remember, the focus is on the process.
