Petoskey stones

Jane Reiter is guestblogger for the Diva this week.  Her challenge is different from others. I have never heard of Petoskey Stones before. It is such a beautiful thing she tells us about! Go to the blog and have a look here!  Here are som pics  (closeups) of the Petoskey Stones:



As you can see the patterns are pentagones and hexagones.

Jane asked us to make a tile inspired by the Petoskey Stones. First I made a little Bijou:


I choose to work with the pentagone, since I never use to do that! I havent used ecoprinted tiles before either! The pattern is Quabog (Zt). The next one is on a regular tile 8,9x8,9 cm:


This one is also on ecoprint paper (Fabriano Tiepolo). I went on with Quabog, I did like this easy and flexible pattern, which I have tried once or twice. The other patterns are Zinger, Tripoli and Tipple, all Zt. This challenge was different and so interesting to do! I think I won´t forget about Petoskey Stones. Ever. Thank´s to Jane Reiter!

Love the second one! It could have been taken straight out of one those Renaissance natural science books - it really fascinates me => I keep looking at it and discovering more wonderful details. Very inspiring. Am definitely going to try your version of Tripoli!

Anita, your petoskey stones look like burning hot suns. Just wonderful!!! And I love what you did with Tripoli. You made it a complete different tangle or out to the box thinking. Quabog I had to look up; never heard of it. So if I ever need sun tentacles, Quabog it is!

Quabog! Yes! Just the right tangle for these stones! I love your paper. The colors on the second tile are so lovely!
