Spirals Three

What fun! The Diva presented the Week 26 Challenge as a spiral string. I was happy because spirals are my favorites. Anything that's round and round is gobs of fun for me. This challenge flows nicely from last week's zendala fun.
   My first was simple: two interconnected spirals. (Check out this video by Vi Hart to learn how to cross over or "snake" your lines. It's fun and much easier than you'd think!) I've also fallen head over heals with my white Sakura jelly roll pen...





I'm filing the second one under: Anything worth doing is worth over-doing. I just couldn't stop. I'm not very excited about the outcome, but I'm still learning how to not judge the looks of something, but rather to remember how it felt to do it. It was fun and I felt really connected to the moment, so here she be...



I had so much fun with the intertwining that I had to do another... 





Thanks, Laura for Week 26 of your awesome Diva Challenge.

  9. I really liked the first one, but I love the third! However, they are ALL terrific. I especially like the counterpoint of white dots on black, and black dots on white in the third tile.

  11. Fabulous! And I agree with the "worth doing / overdoing" remark! As with beads, so with pens! Hehehehe
