The holidays have been keeping me pretty busy. This week offers a break from the day job, but still plenty going on in the studio and with the family.
I did some tangling for the holidays, and played around a bit with metallic inks on black.
I’ve also been doing a lot of playing around with Renaissance tiles to help prepare for some upcoming classes. Here are a few that I pulled various elements from for the final class. I do love the tan tiles!

I hope you holiday season is going well so far, and that the New Year brings joy and well being!
This week the Diva has challenged us to use Munchin and confessed her dislike of black tiles. She offered up using white on black as an optional portion. I happen to love black tiles, so that aspect of the challenge was a no brainer for me. I have been playing with shiny things lately, so I went gold with Munchin with some white accents.

I recently order the new Tints on Tan kit from Jenny Peruzzi and Marty Deckel. They do a fantastic job putting these together, and provide very clear instructions so it feels like you are taking a class with them.

I enjoyed the tinting techniques so much, that I tried my hand at a tinted black tile, with a psuedo snowflake theme.

In addition to the white pen, I had to go back back in with the Starlight gel pen to give it a little extra winter sparkle. (I know it is not winter yet, but I sooo love when the snow starts falling.)
Don’t forget to check out the other tiles submitted for the Diva’s challenge.
