In the Mood for Magic

The Diva's week 24 challenge is to use only stripes as the string. Stripes being linear and all, I went first to an obvious place in the first tile.


.
Then some curvy stripes creeped in for tile number 2...








Then came the third tile: When I did the string and began to play, I knew it would end up getting very lost, so I scanned it to record where I came from. I didn't know where I was going yet...




...but soon it became clear that some Puf was in the picture....






And voila... the finished tile. 


The string has done its magic again... you can't see it, but it never fails to bring together whatever we bring to the spaces.




Thank you Laura, and thank you, string.

  3. All three are gorgeous. I have to agree that Puff is magical when done in a small grid or large like this!

  8. Wow Carole, I had never seen Puf before and originally I thought maybe your pictures got mixed up because going between the second and third picture it looks like they aren't even the same tile. I'm going to have to try Puf tonight just to see it for myself. Really amazing job. So beautiful!
