Hi and welcome back to the Chrissie Murphy Designs Blog. This week’s Magnified Fragment is G6. So without further ado, let’s get into it and have a look at the enhancer we’ll be using. I’ve also included links to some resources you might find helpful for this week.
This Week’s Magnified Fragment is G6
Here’s a quick sketch of what the fragment looks like as a reference for you.
This week’s Magnified Fragment Enhancer is Zen Gems
I can’t believe it’s taken us this long to look at adding some Zen Gems to our Fragments! This weeks fragment is the perfect configuration for a Zen Gem, so I thought we’d make it MagFrag official and add it as an enhancer.
Some resources to help you with this week’s Magnified Fragment
There are some excellent resources on creating Zen Gems.
The first is an ebook that Ildica Boyd, CZT of TangleatioNZ has available for purchase. I recently took a class with Ildica (you can read about it here) where we worked on Zen Gems. I highly recommend any material offered by Ildica as a worthwhile resource.
The second is another ebook offered by Eni Oken, CZT. This is the first resource I ever purchased about Zen Gems. It’s been something I highly value and use over and over again.
And lastly, many years ago when Zen Gems first came on the scene, I watched Kae Yoshino’s tutorial. Here’s a video where Kae works on Zen Gems. I know it will be helpful too.
If you have any ideas for an enhancer, leave me a comment and we’ll feature them in upcoming fragments.
It’s never to late to join in, the more the merrier. Just tag your tile with #MagnifiedFragments and I’ll see it, share it and add it to our gallery.
