Petoskey stones and a kind gesture

Jane Reiter is the guest blogger this week.
She introduced spectacular stones to us (well, most of us I think): Petoskey Stones, found in Michigan. If you want to know more about these very beautiful and interesting stones, go to the Diva blog.

She asked us to make a tile inspired by these stones.
First I went on the internet, downloaded a hexagon and traced it on a green tile from my stock. After that I tangled this tile and loved how easy (and relaxing) it was to do.
Thanks Jane, I had quite some zen time.

Last week I wrote that I wasn't able to make a mosaic because I don't have Photoshop. Then I got a mail from Thailand from Susie Ngamsuwan with a mosaic of my tile she made for me.
This is what she sent me:

And later an other mail with her explanation how I could do it myself in a free online photo editor.
So very kind of her!!! Thanks again Susie :-)

Thank you for visiting my blog and I hope you leave me a comment. Work created by fellow tanglers can be seen at 'I am the diva'.

Blessed be!

  1. Prachtige Petoskey stoned tile met die mooie achtergrond. Wat attent van deze Thaise dame om je mozaïek zo compleet te maken. Hij is fantastisch zo!

  2. Beautiful times two. Love the colors too. I haven't yet completed last week's challenge, but I still plan to.

  3. Lovely, petroskey Stone was fun to replicate for me too. Very nice of Susie to make 3 more sides to your mandala!

  4. It never occurred to me to use the computer to finish the "plate". I sat down and did 6 separate tiles! It did turn out lovely as did your Petoskey Stone!

  5. Your Petoskey stone tangle looks very nice on the green tile. I also quite enjoyed this challenge and I fell in love with Petoskey stones. Your plate mosaic from last week is very pretty. Is it hard to do the method Susie sent you? I don't have a fancy photoshop program, but I'd love to be able to create mirrored mosaics with a photo editor.

  6. I love your Petrosky stone tile. Those colors are great and the design within has a very neat tribal feeling too it...but Wow! that completed mosaic is truly amazing;-) Well done both of you!

  7. Oh, that Petrosky stone tile of yours if really beautiful. I didn't even have time yet, to look at this week's challenge, but seeing yours, I am all in....only a bit later. Hmm... maybe this is again something to ask the assistance of Photoshop? Thanks, Anne, for your very kind words. It was my pleasure.

  8. Terrific interpretation! Love the coloured tile you chose!💖

  9. Terrific interpretation! Love the coloured tile you chose!💖

  10. Lovely and very cheerful tile, dear Annemarie! Wonderful colours. Your completed "plate" is beautiful, too!

  11. Your Petoskey stones are radiant, Annemarie! A great example of reticula and fragments, too! I love the intricacy of your plate tile. How kind of Susie to digitally complete it, too! Thank you for reminding me that I was missing a picture on my blog this week! Thanks to you, it's finally on there!
