The Diva's Weekly Challenge #165

These UMT challenges are really nice. I enjoy being prompted to use patterns that I have never used before. Today the Diva decided to make us all draw Camelia by Anne Marks. I chose String 004 for another bit of inspiration.

The other patterns are Paushalöv, as used for the recent String Thing, and Henna Drum by Jane MacKugler. I thought this combination went well together with all the spirals and the possibilities of weighting parts of the swirls. I actually spent some time deciding which side should be up, but I was happy with this tile as it was. Apart from getting water droplets on it, that is. Once I have finished my giant bottle of non-waterproof ink, I am so getting the other thing...

And now I am excited to see the other participants' offerings!

  7. Beautiful, it like your string very much. It looks like those paushalov things are tearing a sheet of Camelia over the henna drum bed. Great....

  8. Amazing effect tearing the paper! Loved the volume which gives multi-layered work!

  10. Thank you, everybody. The tearing effect just kind of happened. To me it looks a bit like Paushalöv fish pulling the paper apart.

  15. I love that central zig-zag string going through the middle - it really drew my eye back and forth so I took in all your lovely detail.
