When I saw the Lisbon fragment I knew I wanted to have a go. I went to my box of tiles and as I pulled out a tile, I noticed this one I did quite awhile ago.
Luckily I wrote on the back how I achieved this look, as I had forgotten. I used a Dreamweaver stencil and sponged distress inks through it onto a Zentangle tile.
Henrike shows how the different orientation of the initial strokes in each fragment changes the look of the the overall tile. Here is what I chose to do.
And here is the final result. I think perhaps the Diva might be moonlighting as a plumber in mine! What do you think? I used black, purple and gray microns, colored pencils, a touch of white chalk, and graphite.
Thanks for stopping by!
