I made up a new batch of watercolor ATC's thinking I might be a bit more efficient. I really enjoyed the back to basics black and white sketchbook series but those seemed to take me such a long time and never did get the "It's a String Thing" challenge done. It could be that I'm a bit of a curmudgeon when it comes to the whole Valentines Day themes that are beginning to pop up. I'm not a hearts and flowers kind of girl...
New "V" pattern: Viaduct
Heidi Sue Whitney's "Hitched"
...although I managed to turn "Hitched" into a flower. It was totally unintentional. "Hitched" is not new to me. I believe it came up in one of the Diva's UMT challenges way back when. I like it a lot because it has so much potential for variation. "Viaduct" is a new one. It's a great bold pattern. My white gel pen is giving me grief though.
I started off intending to fill the entire space with variations of "Cayke", but something in the watercolor background compelled me to create the swirl that became "Marasu". The rest just sort of took on a life of its own.
String Challenge #130
patterns" Luv-a", "Heartbox" & "Join"
also "Heartstrings" & "Marasu"
This weeks string challenge was just the kick in the butt I needed to get into heart mode. I'm participating in a swap that fits similar parameters and I've been putting it off. I made a set of watercolor tiles last week along with the ATCs hoping that would light a fire...it didn't. Anyhoo, one down, ten+ to go.
