The Weekly Diva Challenge was to do a tile with Earth Day as a theme. I decided to work on a larger tile for this and used a 6-inch square tile. I also decided to refresh myself on a couple of techniques I used last year. After tracing around a CD I put in the strings for Sky, Land, and Sea and tangled the Land with a white glaze pen by Sakura as a resist. Then I added watercolor to the areas and used a salt technique in the Sea (how appropriate, lol) and a plastic wrap technique in the Sky (which didn't seem to do much). I took an interim picture at this point....

and then added tangles to Sea and Sky using gel pens. The Five-Oh tangle pretty much obliterated the salt pattern in the Sea area. I wasn't really happy with it so decided to add the Universe as a background using marker to fill and white gel pen to create "Widget" stars. I can't say I'm thrilled with the resulting tile but it was fun to do and I learned some more things about the techniques that I was refreshing.
