Diva Challenge #231~C's & S's (or curves and waves)
by guest blogger Sharla Hicks
Made by Joey #74~ "Kozy" monotangle
Monday morning challenges commence! I'm enjoying another leisurely morning of coffee and creativity out here in my foggy part of town.
I started about 3 hours ago when I opened up this weeks Diva Challenge, brought to us by guest blogger Sharla Hicks of Tangled Expressions. We are challenged to explore the undulating patterns that are based on curves and waves, or C's and S's and create a series. Sharla included several gorgeous examples from her series of works and links to many patterns...so after spending a couple of hours noodling around all that lovely inspiration, I opened up Joey's challenge for the week: a montangle featuring the pattern "Kozy".
My first reaction was dread. I was challenged with "Kozy" several It's a String Thing challenges ago and I hated it! Now, as I've learned, these are not called challenges for nothing. Whenever I'm tasked with something I have a hard time with the results are, more often than not, rewarding.
After a bit of frustrating practice, I pulled out a watercolor ATC from my little box of tricks, that inspired me to take this into an aquatic world and it clicked immediately.
When I decided it was done, I realized this was a great start to the Diva challenge too. I definitely feel a series coming on. Stay tuned;-)
Thank you so much for stopping by. Your comments always make my day.
