There was a perfect storm this long Thanksgiving weekend; a bunch of tangle artists with extra time on their hands discovered several 'Jewel' tutorials that started popping up in Facebook Groups last week...Voila! There was a 'jewel storm' on the boards all weekend long, and the results were amazing! I had such a good time looking at everyone else's work, that you know I had to try it myself! I suspect this is exactly what caused the storm!
While I love color, I'm not very good with it... but I gave it the old college try. I drew a bunch of circles and just started trying the different techniques and color combinations. I'm still not satisfied. I have wicked 'jewel envy' from looking at other's work, but it was fun.
Practice Sheet (tone on tones)
Practice Sheet Two:Sakura shadow technique (Note-paper was two thin and it totally warped)
Practice Sheet Three:Trying to throw an odd color in every now and then.
Have you tried Jewels yet? It's a great way to add a pop of color to black and white tangle work. If you can't find the tutorials let me know and I can help you out! Happy Tangling!
