patterns: Narwal, Onion Drops and Viaduct
In my last post I shared some Halloween inspired tiles I created with black and orange tissue paper for the Diva and Joey Challenges. This is one from that batch. The coloring seemed a good fit for Adele's string, formed by the cursive letters: ele, the first 3 letters in eleven (November being the eleventh month), also as I just now noticed, the last 3 letters of my name;-)
I started this last night, only knowing where I wanted to place Narwal. The rest just sort of...happened;-) I left the center alone because I liked that it looked like horns. When I was attempting to take a picture of this at the cafe this morning, I noticed the black mask in the corner of the counter area where I was sitting and thought it a fitting prop to go with the horns. It made me think of a Mardi Gras costume.
I've been trying to get caught up with my backlog of Travelling Tangles this weekend since a new swap has commenced and I really need to get my butt in gear with Christmas gift art.
