*note to self* 98 lb paper is SO much nicer than 65. Let's look into finding the 98 weight in the smaller size.
Meanwhile, one of my projects in this larger sketchbook was to go through the strings on tanglepatterns.com and I have a few more to post here.
|string 56 Bubbles|
|string 54 Bag End|
|string 45 a WHAT out of hell?|
|string 41 Woven|
|string 42 In the Field|
|string 43 Starburst|
This one has Flux, Concert, Tellis, Onomato, N'zeppel (?) and Fescu. It reminds me of the round door of a hobbit hole...and why not Mr. Baggins's ? hence, Bag End is what i call it.
Looking at the string on this one, I was immediately drawn to a sort of bat shape so even though a bat doesn't have a curly tail, I did what I had to. I like this one. It makes me smile.
This is possibly my favorite of the string project pieces. It is simply Arums on string 41, and I made the stems sort of cross over/under each other. Here is arums stepout
and visit Poppie's blog for many more patterns.
I call this one In the Field, because it depicts a wavy background, with individual shapes rising up out of the wave. It is similar to my ideas what the quantum universe is like: waves of energy with every single thing rising up out of the energy, to see and be seen by each other in the physical world.
This one for the life of me I can't remember the name of the pattern. And I'm losing steam fast so...
and with all this showing off of my string project, now for the Diva Challenge:
|In the Neighborhood|
This happens to be on string 73, part of my project as a matter of fact. Across the middle is Cubine which was fun to put on a curved grid. The upper left is Rautyflex filled in pretty much the way it is shown in the stepouts, and on the bottom right I went with the outline of the square+triangle shape.
This one reminds me of rows of houses and buildings.
that's all I've got for now. Though the illness is largely behind me, there are many things that really sap my energy, and this blog post is one of them. Now I am feeling tired and need to rest.
Many blessings to all who visit, and of course I love any and all comments.
