These are the sides of the box:
And this is a photo of the whole box. I still have the back and handle side of the box and half of one side. I will likely do the bottom as well. I suppose when I am done I will spray it in clear sealant to keep it from getting too grubby and smudging the pencil shading. Then I have two magazine holder boxes in white card board I plan to cover in tangles also.
This is another response to the challenge I started, but I think it needs something more (like maybe the penciled in tangle in the upper right... not sure). I am beginning a very busy week for me so I am not sure I will finish it in time for the Sunday deadline... so you get to see it in-process. I actually started this one several times and kept not hitting on just the right combination of tangles and ending up disappointed. This one I am happy with so far... if only I could remember the name of the pattern down the middle!
Have a great week and head over to the Weekly Challenge at The Diva to see others' purple inspirations.
These are gorgeous and I love your box. Beautifully done!ReplyDelete
Both are lovely. Your box is amazing, a real keepsake.ReplyDelete
Both are great - but the box is really cool!ReplyDelete
WOW. Your box is gorgeous! And I love the one down below, as well. The tangle going down the middle is a version of Flux, I think. Maria usually fills in the negative space with orbs. I like that look (when it's done with orbs), but I think that filling it solid as you have done looks quite striking and it really strengthens your composition.ReplyDelete
About the upper right area...I think a more fluid tangle based on circles or curves might be a better choice to finish it, rather than the one you have penciled in. The straight lines and angle are jarring to me, given how organic the rest of the tangle is. Just my opinion, and I hope it's not unwelcome...you didn't ask for it. Obviously, you know what you're doing and whatever you choose is the right choice! :-)
