This Week’s Magnified Fragment is D11

Hi and welcome back to the Chrissie Murphy Designs Blog. This week’s Magnified Fragment is D11. 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.

Here’s a quick sketch of what the fragment looks like as a reference for you.

This week’s Magnified Fragment Enhancer is to Cut Out!

I’ve been noticing quite a few tiles where components of the tile are cut out (or missing). I thought that this week’s Fragment is perfect for this kind of technique so we’re going to give it a go.

Get your Stanley knife or scissors ready and get cutting! Check out the work in my progress pic to see what we’re doing.

Once you’ve cut out a segment of your fragment, you can tangle what remains any way you’d like. Check out this week’s links to inspiration for some great ideas.

Some inspiration to help you with this week’s Magnified Fragment

I’ve included some great examples of tiles where components have been cut out. Check out these beauties.

Late last year Anica Gabrovec, CZT came up with a great way of using StArukas where a component of the tile is cut out.

Salty’s Mindful Art also played with Anica’s idea and his cut out design looks fantastic.

Catharine Vivorich CZT combined the idea of cut outs with adding a TranslucenZ® Tile by Zentangle®. Doesn’t this look beautiful.

Hopefully this gives you some great inspiration for cutting out a component of your tile this week. I can’t wait to see what you do!
