My first tile, on a recycled Cheez-Its box
And another, in my journal, with "Clob", by Jem Miller
Somewhere in the Zen-sphere, there were rumblings of Margaret Bremner's Pixioze, a tangle that always makes me happy to see, but that I rarely use. I decided to give it a go. It takes me some time to fill up space with this, so I have to slow down. (Is it all the auras?) But, boy, is it relaxing! (Is it all the auras?)
On the Mosaic app, Rick and Maria posted a "Kitchen Table Tangle" video using Well in a fractal pattern. (Funny, I thought I did something similar in my journal a year ago, loved it, but couldn't really remember how I got there. Looking at it now, I see it's not at all Well, but Cadent. Sort of. Ish.)
I was so confident about the Well fractals. I grabbed my fancy sketchbook from seminar and just jumped right in. It did not go so Well.
So I watched again, took a breath and another Cheez-It tile and jumped in again.
On the first try, the Prismacolors would not budge, much to my chagrin. On the Cheez-Its box, they glide. They blend beautifully, play with each other well. I don't understand. I would love to find a list of papers and suitable media, so that my inks don't bleed, my papers don't buckle and my Prismacolors don't freeze.
Any suggestions? Is this documented or just something you're born knowing? Maybe it's just experience, trial and error? Art classes? Youtube videos? I enjoy experimenting, but sometimes it can be frustrating!!!
Thanks for stopping by! Hope your week glides by like a Prismacolor on a Cheez-It box!
