Diva Weekly Challenge #295: "Reticula/Fragment part 2" Update!

Update: 12-1-16 THIS is what I was trying for in the Diva Challenge



This is one of those times I'm sorry that I promised to put the first challenge tile I completed up-come what may. My intentions were pure but this baby came out a muddled mess. I wanted to do a straight grid with 4 'loose' fragment tiles floating on top. I still think the concept is sound and may try it with another fragment pattern. Picking a 3-D fragment like Cubine was a mistake. It all smooshed together into a mess. You're not having a bad acid flashback...it just looks that way-complete with lousy lighting, creased and smudged paper and my thumb. I didn't clean it up-why bother?  Avert your eyes. Save yourself

In other news, I kind of like this one. It's just from my doodle book but I was in a spring/summer mood on a rainy autumn night!


Onward and upward....

You may not like it, but I sure do! I think that it worked out great! Remember no mistakes! I like the idea of the floating fragments also.

I think you forgot the rule to be kind to yourself. You just need to walk away and come back to this first tile. I am in awe and just love it for its creativity, dimension, and bold look!

I absolutely love your first tile! So glad you posted it, "no matter what". It's charming, interesting, and so dimensional. Your second tile is lovely also, but that first is amazing.

I think that you are a bit too hard on yourself (as lots of us are) and that the tile is very beautiful.

I totally agree with the previous comments! I do love your Cubine tile! And the other two I like as well, of course! Please, don´t be so hard to yourself!

The one that you like is lovely and I like the fragment that is floating on the tile. And the Cubine one: I love this one! Very interesting effect.
