I've done this a couple of times before - working in grey, honey and green - but this time I grabbed a frightfully bright orange paper and wondered if I could tame it into elegance.

And I think I did. The subtle hints of green help to break up the orange. And then of course I dabbled with the new official technique of Tranzending. To be honest I wasn't too sure I liked the look of it when I first saw it. It looked like a way to 'mess up' an otherwise appealing tile. But then I played about, adding a little hint here and there and it started to make more sense. As you can see through the course of these 4 tiles I got more adventurous, using a larger and more complicated section of Tranzending each time. It takes a bit of thought in my mind, to work out how it can be brought in to compliment rather than obscure what's already there. But I think it's an interesting way to add another dimension to our tiles.
