Whoa!! Wait, what? Its Wednesday and I am already posting a challenge?? Crazy!
Really I just love Flux and have used it in many forms over the years. I have a little extra step that I do when I do it Maria-style that helps me to keep it evenly spaced, but otherwise its pretty much the same. I tried thickening the lines in places in the first piece to see what that was like and ended up not really liking the effect. I haven't given up on it yet, but this certainly isn't the answer. Anyway, here they are.
