Challenge #15 from our diva, Laura Harms was to tangle with only curved lines. While it sounded easy enough (I love curvy lines) for some reason I struggled with the challenge this week.
It could be because my nerves and muscles were thrown off balance a little this week, at least that's what I am going to blame it on. On Wednesday, I was in a car accident at a busy intersection, where the person coming the other direction did not see the red light and ran into my car at about 35 mph. Luckily, my guardian angel was riding with me that day and I wasn't hurt that bad, just aches & pains, bumps & bruises. I will know for sure next week, but it appears that my car is totaled. :(
Anyway, I tried to do a couple of tangles on Thursday, and wasn't happy with the way anything was turning out. So, I did this one today and it's not quite what I was hoping for, but decided to post it anyway. I started with the ribbon in the middle and then just let the rest happen. I used Maria's technique of using a Sakura Gelly Roll pen on black ink in a couple of spots. I've done tangles with white pen on black paper before, but never thought about mixing the two together. It was a lot of fun and I look forward to trying this some more.
Hopefully, I get my focus back once my muscles loosen up and my body heals a little more.
