Hi and welcome back to the Chrissie Murphy Designs Blog. This week’s Magnified Fragment is B13. 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 B13
Here’s a quick sketch of what the fragment looks like as a reference for you.
This week’s Magnified Fragment Enhancer is to Colour Your String
This is another great enhancer I’ve seen online lately. The idea is to tangle with a coloured string. When we do we ensure the string forms a more permanent feature of our fragments.
It’s not a difficult technique. Instead of marking your string with graphite pencil, we’ll use colour.
You can use whatever you have on hand…. watercolour, coloured pencil, Posca pens, markers. Just make sure your fragment string is drawn in colour.
I have some good examples for you in our resources this week. Please read on.
Some resources to help you with this week’s Magnified Fragment
Here’s some ideas of how other artists are using coloured strings;
Jennie McKenzie of the Tangled Adventure, CZT on Instagram has used watercolour to create the string on her tile. You can see how Jennie has then gone on to use the coloured string as a feature.
Our good friend and Tangler Olivia Navarro has also been exploring coloured strings. Have a look at this gold example by Olivia.
And one more example from yours truly. This is where I dipped string in alcohol ink and then laid it on a tile. The ink stained the tile forming a coloured string.
Hopefully the examples above gives you a good idea of what we’re focusing on this week.
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.
