Hi and welcome back to the Chrissie Murphy Designs Blog. Well, this is it guys! The very first fragment for Part 2 of the Project. This week’s Magnified Fragment is A11. So without further ado, let’s get into it, 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 A11
Here’s a quick sketch of what the fragment looks like as a reference for you.
This week’s Magnified Fragment Enhancer is Steampunk
This enhancer idea was suggested to us by Aida Rico, CZT and I think this first triangular fragment is perfect for this technique because it’s so simple.
What’s Steampunk you ask? Well, Wikipedia describes it this way;
Steampunk is a subgenre of science fiction that incorporates retrofuturistic technology and aesthetics inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery.Wikipedia
Think of cogs and chains, pipes, screws and metal plates. Industrial kinds of elements. You’ll want to check out the links to resources I have this week for some ideas to help.
Some resources to help you with this week’s Magnified Fragment
I think the best source of inspiration this week is to visit Starmaro Arts on Instagram. Star has been deep diving on Steampunk themed tangling for a while.
Doret Swart has a fantastic collection of Steampunk themed tangle patterns on Pinterest. Check out Doret’s collection here
On YouTube, Draw Tangles with Dawn has a great playlist about Steampunk tangling. Click on through to Dawn’s playlist here.
If you have any ideas for an enhancer in Part 2 of the Project, leave me a comment and we’ll feature them in upcoming fragments.
Now is the perfect time to join us, the more the merrier. Just tag your tile with #MagnifiedFragments and I’ll see it, share it and add it to our gallery.
