Celtic Knot Challenge #2
I am really loving Judy West's teaching us how to do celtic knots. They look so complicated, but she breaks them down until they are very . . .well, not easy, but less complicated to do. I just played around with the design and then decided it needed a bit of color. Check out her "distructions" at Creative Doodling. It is a cool sight if you have not discovered it.
I can't figure out why this dare was so wicked! I just could not get inspired. I decided to keep lots of space - not usual for me and use my favorite tangle, Verve. It also gets some of my other favorites - betweed, pea-nuckle, emingle, and beadlines. After I finished it, I felt okay about it. Kinda reminds me of a funky driving wheel. Okay my brain is tired . . . But go to The Bright Owl and see all the awesome entries.
Soooo glad to hear the Diva is back - mostly because it means Artoo (her really cute little guy) is out of the hospital. My prayers go out to you and your family, Diva.
The challenge this week at the Diva's site was to draw our string with our eyes closed. I drew three tiles and discovered I tend to be much more curvy with my eyes closed. I chose the one string I liked the best to work on. I wanted to take a pre tangle picture but my camera phone and I had an argument and it won. I also decided to pull out the sepia pens. Just to be different.
The center area was my blind string, then I webbed around it fully aware of my moves - or maybe I shouldn't admit that.
Over at The Craft Barn, there is a cool give-away of crafting goodies. Check it out and enter. Maybe one of us will get lucky. Here are the goodies:
Guess that wraps up another week. I think I like posting these separate - I get confused. Hope I haven't linked everyone to who knows where!! That would be wild. Take care, have a safe and happy week and HAPPY TANGLING!!
