Playing With Fragments

I've been playing with my Fragment Dice in preparation for my class on Reticula and Fragments. The possibilities intrigue me.
First, look what happens when you put 4 of the same fragments together. Imagine using these in your Zentangle art as they are or with shading or tangling in the negative spaces. And this is just a sampling of the combinations!
Second, This is only one sample that I put together that is calling me to duplicate and tangle it. It's is made up of the same fragment without any turning. Look what happens in the middle sample above when fragments are arranged in different positions. This whole process is so fascinating!

 Next? What can I do with 2 different fragments? More to come.

Merry Christmas 2017

If you have been following along with this year's Advent Journey, I hope it has been a joy to you. Here is my final panel.

I cut out the card and added some shading along the upper edge to give the effect of snow.

I also shaded the upper edge of the middle panel on the backside so that when the card is closed, it looks like snowy hills.

Here it is folded accordion style and ready to send out as a card.

Have a joy filled Christmas.
