What a fun piece to make this was! SuzyMosh has a very interesting weekly challenge, to use patterns that we haven't used before, and this week we are to use V patterns.
I chose five patterns that I've never used before, and one that I love and use a lot. I simply had to. For a string, i drew a curvy line snaking all over the page.
From the top left, going clockwise: vortex, viaduct, via, verve, voxter. I've seen several of these patterns around, and I practiced via one time but never used it in a tile or anything.
and Verdigoh is a favorite of mine. I love how organic it is, and how well it fills a corner space. I filled the bottom left corner with tipple, and added lots of tipple to the verdigoh...
The piece as a whole reminds me of a walk in the woods. There's some aspen, some pine, an eddy or two in the creek along the way. Even the viaduct sorta looks like a pine cone or something.
This was quite a fun challenge, very enjoyable!
