It took me awhile to realize the outer shape of the hexagon is the outer shape of a cube. So I think my fascination started back when I was seeing the vesica piscis in a cube. For those of you who are or have enjoyed A Beginners Guide to Constructing the Universe, I jumped from chapter 2 to 6 once I started with the 6 sided hexagon, or at least as soon as I realized it was a cube!
The simple cube.
Here I die cut a set from from watercolor paper. This time I left the pieces intact to draw the cubes and then color. I used Derwent Inktense pencils lightly and then added water. (I'm still using the Papertrey Ink hexagon cover plate die.)
I also cut another from black cardstock and used its black reticulum.
Here is the final result turned into a 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 inch (A2) card. That's a Hero Arts Thanks die.
Back to the cube in the hexagon, it's really a center point with 3 radiating lines that form 3 diamonds.
I filled in one of those diamonds. I really liked that snowflake design created by the white diamonds when you put 3 tiles together.
Can you see it better here?
There are really 2 tiles going on here.
A happy accident that occurred when I drew it in reverse. Luckily I didn't toss that first one, instead I drew more of both versions.
I might have gotten a little carried away. This is one (er, I guess 2!) of my favorite fragments.
And just for fun, a larger tile. I cut it and it's card base using the Spellbinders Nestabilities hexagon dies.
More to come!
