Alphabet Challenge, It's a String Thing #96 & Made by Joey #64

Paizel, Queeries & Rozy
This one was a toughy. It didn't really come out as I'd hoped. I've been approaching this particular challenge in a postcard sized format in the hopes of generating a set of note cards. For each challenge I choose a border, a central and a background pattern and work in that order, then determine the colors last. I started with the Paizel border, which was really relaxing and enjoyable to draw. By the time I got to the Queeries background it started to fall apart and then the colors got muddy. Anyhoo, not my finest hour(s) but as I'd already invested so much time I finished it and committed to it by leading off with it here. 
I got a lot of challenges done this week at the expense of everything else, but that's how I roll.

Alphabet Monotangles~Arukas

I started a new watercolor page in my sketchbook but I think I got a little heavy handed with it. I think I'll complete the page with some bold contrasts.

String #92~Neuron, Nuwave, Nvelope & Nipa

This string wanted to morph into Nvelope. So I let it. Ooops I just noticed I wrote the wrong challenge # on the page. Back to a simple white page.

Thanks for stopping by. Your lovely comments always make my day.
