Spill it!

Need a little something unexpected to stir things up a bit? The DivaCZT's challenge this week is to spill something on a tile, let it dry, and tangle around/on it. You could use coffee, spaghetti sauce, food coloring, anything that will leave a splotch. I had some watered-down acrylic paint near my desk so I used that.

These became almost like Rorschach tests; I was seeing all sorts of things in the splotches! Here are pairs: the original splotch and the splotch tangled.

Hammy the Hamster Discovers a Corn Kernel
Tangles: a Black Pearl, Hollibaugh, Tipple, sort of Zander, and sort of either Printemps or Tortuca.

Bug, Meet Windscreen
Tangles: Going Down, Printemps, Tipple and stripes

Red Giraffe, Bending and Reaching
Tangles: Featherfall, N'zeppel, Wud, and stripes

Mask
This was originally inspired by Picasso's "Head of a Bull", briefly looked Georgia O'Keeffe-ish, and finished as a sort of African mask.
Tangles: Buttercup, Knightsbridge, N'zeppel (ordered), N'zeppel (random), Tipple,
plus a simple zigzag and a rope twist pattern
That was a lot of fun! Thanks again Laura.

  15. Isnt the Rorschach test supposed to determine how crazy we all are? Or how creative?! There may be a correlation somewhere! All i know is i need another vacation quick as i was starting to see my tile moving! Nevertheless, great work Margaret!
