Glass Tower

In January, I created one tile/design/pattern/window a day for 31 days. Each tile is 4″ x 4″ x 0.252″ or 101.6mm x 101.6mm x 6.4mm, which should work very well for 3d Printing. Here are examples of some of the tiles I created. They are just designs and patterns, there is no hidden meaning behind a tile.

What can you create with these tiles? I created a Glass Tower in Tinkercad with the 31 tiles. The only tile I reused was the last tile, the bottom tile, the tile I used for the floor. Below are pictures of my Glass Tower. The 3D view is available at this link: Glass Tower

All the tiles are available for copying and tinkering on Tinkercad. What can you make with these tiles? A square, a window in a building, a charm for a necklace. Just use your imagination and log on and search for sarahcath under People to find a design.

January’s Tiles

For January, I drew on two tiles per day. One tile was white and one tile black. Some were nice, some were not so nice. Below are the better tiles. I used Studio Series Artist’s Tiles, Micron pen on white, and Sakura pens on black. Shading with a pencil made some of the tiles beautiful.

October’s Drawings and Beyond

In 2009 a trend called Inktober was envisioned. I don’t participate in Inktober, but I do try draw a tangle a day during the month and I like drawing on 16″x20″ art board. Below is my tangle drawing using a black art board and Sakura Gel Pens.

I also wanted to use my Copic Markers, so I created a list for 31 Days of Color. I randomly selected 31 colors from my Copic Markers and created a drawing with 61 sections on a 16″x20″ art board. Here is this list of colors I used.

My drawing for 31 Days of Color resembled a stained-glass window.

31 Days of Color

This inspired me to create another stained-glass window drawing. I used my Copic Markers and a 16″x20″ art board. The big question I had before I started coloring was “where is the light source coming from?” I decided it was coming from the outside, behind the stained-glass. Therefore, the inside had to be dark. I didn’t want to make it black inside, below is the result.

4″ Wood Squares

I purchased some wood squares from Michael’s. I was going to create fluid art on them and make coasters. I have multiple sets of fluid art coasters so I decided to sand and stain the squares while I was staining my desk. I used acrylic paint markers for the designs and sealed the squares with gloss polycrylic.

I am not sure what to do with these. I may still make coasters out of them. Coaster work better if they are sealed with resin. Which is still possible, because resin work better when the surface is sealed.

Tangles of Tangles

This drawing was done on 16″x20″ watercolor art board using Faber Castell watercolor pens and Pigma Mircon Pens. I tested several other pens and these did the best on this drawing. Several of the tangles I learned from Zentangles and tangles site. A few I created myself.

Lost in the Colors

Other projects have gotten in the way of posting on my blog. I had a reason for creating this site. If I am not posting regularly then I am not fulfilling that goal.

For Christmas I received some Copic Markers. I want to experiment and test the markers. The drawing below is my experiment. I wanted to see how they flowed and blended.

Inktober 2019

Here is my Inktober Drawing for 2019.  It was done on a 20×16 Bristol Board.  I used the Zentangle method for the drawing.  I marked the four corner, drew wavy lines and circles.  I made sure there was 31 sections and use the 2019 Zentangle Inktober list to fill one section a day.  On October 31, I shaded all section of the drawing.  Below is the results.

20191122_155116.jpg I also did mini (3.5″ x 3.5″) drawings for Inktober.  I used the list provided by Pattern-Collection website.  Those drawings are on the Drawings page.
