Joey's Challenge #126 finish my tile..

Yet another first for me..this time an entry for Joey's Challenge. I was not aware of this one until this weekend so thought I would have a go.
The idea is that Joey starts a tile, this one with a Paradox triangle, then we finish off the tile.
What a fun idea, I've really enjoyed the concept and the process.
So..to Joey's Paradox I abutted some of Kate Ahren's Tropicana and surrounded the whole lot with Tricia Faraone's Sanibelle. I struggled a little with the Paradox shading (as ever) but decided to leave the little highlight in the very centre, Tropicana and Sanibelle were both totally new to me but an utter joy to draw..thanks to those ladies :)

  3. I haven't yet tried a Joey's Challenge - maybe one day soon. But I love what you've done. Sanibelle is so addictive to draw, and Tropicana is so classical and structural. I've seen some people draw a band of something else, at an angle behind it so you see it through some of the space - if that makes any sense - and it looks great!

  4. Someone else had suggested I try a Joey's and I just loved the idea of 'finish my tile'! Sanibelle IS addictive isn't it and I did consider slipping it behind the Tropicana but thought it might be over egging the cake lol! Thank you for your comment Jem.

  10. I really like this smooth paradox...elegant and stately. The entire piece reminds me of a stroll on the boardwalk, or a bridge over a bay. Very pretty. Excellent Olympics tribute, too!
