Starry Eyed Surprise

Posted by Picasa

Laura Harms' 4th weekly challenge was a surprise!   I tried a few stars free-hand but couldn't continue, I needed a more repetitive way so I used my own version of a star, one I learned as a child, and then it was easy to do them quickly and use them as fill.  This was fun and whimsical.  I finally did a tangle in record time!  The shading here is done with a silver pencil but it doesn't show very well in the photo--I think it is quite pretty on the paper.  Thank you Laura or another fun challenge!

  10. whimsical is a great description. I feel light when I look at your tangle. I'm going to do one this evening that is inspired by yours. It's been bubbling up all day. :-)

  12. I learned that same method for making stars. The swirly tendrils you added to your design give it great movement.
