I will admit that they turned out better than I had hoped. It TOOK FOREVER since I had to creep along at a snails pace to get a decent line quality. I also had to keep stopping myself from switching hands. This is another lefty piece. I was not about to fill in the whole space with Tipple with my left hand... just shoot me now! I was losing patience. I guess this was mostly an excersize in patience for me. I could forgive the wobbles, although I didn't like them,because I am, as they say, all thumbs on my left. It did frustrate me to have to go so slow when I knew I could whip it out using my right hand.
Then I thought I would show you the finished purple challenge that I presented only partly done a few weeks ago. I got some good advice via comments and took those to heart in trying to find just the right tangle to finish it up.
And, finally I thought I would show this one done during a very busy week last week. The string was arrived at by laying a few of my wavy hairs out on the page (not the gray ones, they are too hard to see against the white!) and tracing the line they made on the paper. The tangels are mostly recognizable except maybe the one on the bottom right. It was inspired by the wood (faux I am sure) paneling on the inside of an elevator I rode that week. It was a fabulous texture and very touchable. I am sure there were people who wondered why the crazy lady in the elevator was stroking the walls! I really like the ink build up where the lines flow together. Does anyone recognize this as an already names pattern? Or might this be a new one? The closest I could come up with was Scrumble, but it is really totally different than that in both process and end result. Do let me know if I a missing out on one like this that is already out there.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.
