Hi and welcome back to the Chrissie Murphy Designs Blog. This week’s Magnified Fragment is A15. 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 A15
Here’s a quick sketch of what the fragment looks like as a reference for you.
This week’s Magnified Fragment Enhancer is to Use Gold!
Oh the gloriousness of all things gold! This week I encourage you to incorporate gold into our fragment somehow.
You can add as much or as little as you want, it’s up to you. But this week our fragments will shimmer! Read below for some ideas of things you can do.
Some resources to help you with this week’s Magnified Fragment
I’m going to be using gold foil in mine. Here’s a few ideas of different ways you can add gold to your fragment;
- Use gold paint for a particular aspect
- Use a gold gel pen to add highlights or tangle with
- Fill some of your tangle components with a gold paint pen
- Add some gold glitter
- Incorporate gold foil or leaf
There are also some great resources out there to help. Eni Oken has a great ebook on tangling with Gold. You can purchase it here.
Tangle Studio Stefanie has an online class available about working with gold for Renaissance tangling. You can purchase it 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.
