Maria Vennekens had trouble understanding the instructions, but ended up with this delightful work:
Sonya produced a gorgeous piece of art (as usual):
Today's assignment to include a border threw me for a loop and stressed me out a bit as I rarely have a preconceived idea going into a design. I drew out several strings before deciding that thisone fit the author's bill of a frame. I really wanted to make the "ribbons" look 3D and tried some of Cris's shading tips to accomplish it. Using Betweed as the focal point made me nervous since my version never seems to look as natural and flowing as it does for others. Happy with the negative spaces as they add interest to the tile.
Here's Day #32-OZAD: Borders and Frames. There are two tiles, the first is Mooka with a Frame, only ok, I enjoyed doing the Mooka, but don't think the frame fits well with it. Also, an ATC ZIA for part 2 of the lesson...working on style. This was fun to do, but I didn't get to it till late today, and rushed through it...not a good idea. :-) Another project to go back to on another day!
Alas, I have been tangling up a storm getting ready for the retreats, but have nothing to show for the challenge. However, Rick and Maria just posted a wonderful tutorial on tangling borders & frames.
I am off to Indiana and Florida, so I doubt I will be posting here until I get back, but do look for pictures over on Facebook.
