Hi and welcome back to the Chrissie Murphy Designs Blog. This week’s Magnified Fragment is B14. 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 B14
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 a Watercolour Background
This is one of the more simple ways there are to enhance a tile, and it’s one we haven’t worked with yet. So this is the week to get your watercolours out.
We’re going to create a Watercolor background to tangle on for this weeks fragment.
There are no rules or requirements for what your background should look like. All that you need to do is lay down some watercolour to tangle over.
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 watercolour backgrounds;
Liz Gatehouse, CZT of BeYouArt.ByLiz creates wonderful watercolour backgrounds that she tangles on. Have a look at some of Liz’s tiles below.
Jan Weigand also does some wonderful work over watercolour backgrounds.
And lastly Eni Oken CZT has done some incredible work over watercolour backgrounds too. Eni also has an ebook available on it at her Etsy store.
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.
