These two ceramic ornaments will be gifts for my daughters this year. I like to give them an ornament every year for keepsakes from me. My tree is full of keepsakes. A lot of them are from a very dear friend of mine who is no longer with us, and every year that I decorate the tree, I have such good memories of the years she gifted ornaments to me. Great challenge to end the year with, Laura!
Wishing all you a very Merry Christmas and a peaceful New Year!

INTENTIONALLY LEAVE THE MAJORITY OF YOUR TILE EMPTY.... giving the tile just a tiny taste of tangle.
I have to agree with Laura, that this challenge was harder then you would think! We are so used to filling up our tiles, except for maybe a space or two, and leaving so much of the tile white was hard to do!
I did enjoy it though, so I did two tiles!

I finished my last day of INKtober on time, but forgot to post it yesterday! INKtober has been fun for me to make sure I tangle something every day, which actually wasn't too hard as I do tangle almost every day anyway. For the last day I am posting my painted rocks. If you have been to my house, you know that I have these rocks scattered along the path that leads to my front door. Some of the rocks are tangled, some painted, some dotted, and some Mandala's. They are always a conversation piece and my neighbors love them. I made this one for one of my neighbors........
These are some more of the others......

My current fascination is with stones and ceremony. Maybe you are familiar with cairns, those crowd-sourced stone piles that serve to mark the path of trails in out-of-the way places. (I say crowd-sourced because cairns are often formed by wayfarers contributing to the pile, one stone at a time).
I invite you to trust in your intuition as you move toward your own vision of stones and ceremony with pen in hand and blank tile before you.
I happen to have hiked a lot in the past 20 years in Rocky Mountain National Park and other places in Colorado, so I am very familiar with rock cairns. Since I am directionally challenged, there have been a few hikes where I was really glad to see rock cairns marking my way! It's funny, with all the hikes I have done, I have taken so many beautiful photo's, but not many of cairns. There is one hike in the Flatirons of Boulder that has a field full of rock cairns. I could not find my photo's and I am short on time today, so I did find this image of the place I am talking about online. There are so many cairns there, you can't fit all of them in a photo! Of course, I had to add a rock to one while I was there. Very cool!

For this tile I use the Twinkling H2O's watercolor paints. I thought I was going to do blue and green again, but what I thought looked like blue in the jar, really came out purple on paper. I went ahead and added my green, and quickly realized it needed another color, so I added copper. This string took a lot of tangles, and I think it has a Halloween feel to it.

On this first one I used Sakura's gelly roll MOONLIGHT pens in blue and light green. I went back and covered a triangle shape in black over the top....love the dramatic look to doing that!
