Suzy Mosh's challenge this week was to use X patterns we have never used before. I found a new favorite, Xpetals.
THANK YOU, SUZY!
In addition to X's, we are to incorporate a pattern by Sue Jacobs. She has a LOT of patterns, and a couple of hers are favorites of mine. For this tile, I chose Coil, which I've used a lot. It is fun to draw and looks extremely cool when you get done shading.
Last week's String Thing challenge used string #98 and I like that string so much, I strung four tiles with it, and intend to use them in upcoming challenges INCLUDING this one.
I love all the curves and flow of this string.
I turned string 98 upside down, so the lines are cascading down from above, and filled them with coil. A border of Xav along the left edge and the top. Then, falling in love big time, I made a few x-petals in and among the coils.
To finish, I did a tangelation of beadlines (Maybe. This could be an actual tangle but I don't know what it is called) all in the background of the whole piece. Shading really solidified this piece. I JUST LOVE the depth on x-petals with the shading. I know this tangle will make it into many of my works.
this is so X-masy!
Don't you agree?
