Challenge 182 was to work around the theme of 'stripes'. How easy could that be?? Believe it or not, I struggled with it. Possibly because I was out of my comfort zone at home and worked in a book rather than a tile. I first attempted rounded stripes, which I coloured, then straight ones
I wasn't happy with either of these, so found a tile and began again, keeping things simple this time.
Much happier with this attempt!. I then enjoyed colouring it red, calling the final one "Adventure in Red"
When I tried to work on this weeks challenge UMT = 'use my tangle', again I struggled, so did my own version of "X-DID" by Annette Carlo.
I was quite pleased with these! I liked the way the shading on the first one brought out a 3D effect. For the coloured one (used gel pens), I created the X-dids with curved and straight lines. You may need to look carefully for the pattern, but it is there!!
While with my grandies in Perth, we had some fun colouring in Ben Quoks templates!!
