Hi all. I'm gonna keep it short and sweet today as I'm having some technical issues and problems getting my pics loaded.
This week's challenge is to trace your fingers in some creative way and use that as the string. Once again, I felt compelled to break out the DIY art journal. This previously painted page seemed like a good fit:
The string is placed
I started out trying to use the white space around the border as another way to break up the string. Things got a little busy and it took much longer than I thought, but I like the way it came out. I was drawing this at the cafe on Monday. The text says "today, a woman at the cafe asked me if I was an artist. I caught myself hesitating before I said 'Yes. I am an Artist.' "
A Challenge Duet
I'm quite happy with the way this one came out. The parameters of Joey's "Finish my Tile" challenge is to start with the focus pattern, Breach, "Front and Center". I went rogue and off-set it a bit. Symmetry makes me...uneasy and given the unknown of IAST at that point, the tweak gave me some leeway.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Your thoughtful and generous comments delight and inspire me.
