Challenge 23 - String Therory



This week the challenge from Laura Harms is to see what we can all do with the same string.  My first step was to print off the string - which didn't go so well.  It printed on an 8-1/2 X 11 paper which meant it was HUGE!!!!  So it became obvious (to save printer paper and ink) I was going to have to redraw it and what better way to keep it than to redraw it onto my journal?  That way I don't have to wonder where I've put the tile.  I know - I should probably organize my tiles but since it's not on the immediate "to do" list, it's probably not going to happen anytime soon.  Besides I love my journals and do most of my work there.   So moving on - after I got the string drawn, I was sort of stuck!  I went to Laura's website (I am the Diva) to see what the masses were doing.  I am always awestruck at the creativity others are so generous to share.  Each piece was awesome in it's own right.   So with some ideas and inspiration, away I went - and this is the result!  It was a fun challenge and the results are all so similar but still so different!  No matter if you're doing what others are doing or if you're marching to your own drummer on this Wednesday - have fun doing it!

  3. That is beautiful. I love how you have just enough dark draw your attention, but not so much as to overwhelm. Very nice movement. I especially like the vertical tangle on the left side and your I like it all.
