For my first tile I used Tombow markers in their full color (without blending). I made a string with bright bold colors and then tangled. I then used a white charcoal pencil for highlighting. I surprised myself and actually like the brightness of it.
For my second & third tiles I wanted to try the watercolor technique of applying a watercolor wash and then salt. That was fun to see how the salt changed the look of the color. Next time I would get my paper even wetter then I did this time. The paper the tiles are made out of really takes water well. They curled up when wet, but flattened right out when dry. For the purple tile I used a regular Micron for the tangles and for the blue tile I used Sakura Gelly roll pens and highlighted both with a white charcoal pencil. The color on both looks so much better in person then in the photo.
Thanks, Laura! It's always fun to try new things!
