She asked us to draw monotangles of `Nzeppel which is one of my absolute favourites.
She wrote interesting words about the issue "not fitting in" . I know such situations very well.
I decided for a Zendala tile which I had prepared some weeks ago for another DIVA challenge.
I prepared a string with black tea.
My `Nzeppel on this tile different from the standard tangle, but nevertheless I am sure nobody will say "it does not fit" ;-)
CZT Summit "G2" in Dresden (much more peaceful than G20)
Last friday I had a beautiful day with a CZT friend from Berlin. Sabrina is the CZT next to me and I am very happy to know her.
She visited me in Dresden and we spent some hours tangling, talking, laughing...and even a little geocaching. The time hurried...
Some weeks before she asked me to tangle something into a pictrure frame which she sent me.
Of course I used one of my own tangles "Praa" and my special version of the Macintosh- roses.
I like this little piece myself and was very happy to see that Sabrina liked it as well:
What did we do the whole day?
We had the idea to try together the new "transzendig" technique.I decided for "Umble" over "Spoken"
So I prepared the tile with "Spoken":
and added a complete layer of "Umble" on top.
For my opinion this example shows, how this technique does NOT work very well. The black lines are much too havy and the whole tile is too busy and overloaded. Absolutely no transzending ;-(
So... this is my experience of "It does not fit in" .
First I wanted to throw the tile away and did not want to show it, but I think possibly it is helpful to see also some "Nogo" examples ... why not?
Back to some nice tiles:
Sabrina showed me her experiences with tangling on grey tiles - the possibility to highlight with white (like renaissance) but without brown.... the colours are glowing literally on the grey.
And she showed me how to draw beautiful Zengems. I did not draw very much of them before and was curious how it works.
We drew some Zengems and tested some different pens and colours.
Here is one example of our "hard work"
|Zengems created with Inktense ink pencils (watercolour ink)|
Lateron I tried another tile with Zengems in pink on grey paper
|Zengems created with Prismacolour pencils (dry blended)|
and the next day I was in the mood to create a multicoloured tile
|some perfs with Inktense, some with Prismacolour|
Sabrina drew a little MySwing tile for me and I gave her some hints how I draw it in detail.
I am so happy to see this tile , isn`t that lovely?
Last not least I give you a small insight about the creative atmosphere, we call it "creative chaos"..
Finally, after nearly 9 hours, we were tired, but happy. Thank you so much, Sabrina, for that beautiful day! I am looking forward to see you again.
