Stripes of a sort! Diva Challenge #182

I've been playing with Blogger, so for the next little while, I am playing around with different templates and colors. I think I know what I want, but expect to see changes whenever the mood strikes. Since I have a thing for pink, it will likely stay with a pink theme of some sort *grin*

Well, I had so much fun with the challenge last week, that I thought I would try again. The first one I tangled really didn't feel all that great to me and it just felt kind of awkward but I at least finished it. I was just kind of grasping at tangles that I thought might look pretty good, but somehow they didn't want to cooperate. I like the Brayd (sort of), but it wasn't quite what I had in mind. The Scrolled Feather ( I think that's the name anyway) didn't quite manage to come out at all.  And then when I took the picture tonight, it looks all tan but I think that's because I didn't use a flash. I guess I need to work on that too.  But anyway, here is Tile #1 for this challenge:

So, I tried again and I think I like this one much better and for some reason, the picture turned out better too. Strange because they were both on the same background, but I think this second one is a lot better anyway. Anyway, here is my submission for this week.  Can't wait to try the new challenges.

I know the tangles in this one because I actually wrote them down as I was doing them *giggle*. They are: Bunzo, Paradox, Shattuck, Onamato, Ciceron, and Hibred.  I think that Bunzo is quickly becoming a favorite of mine, just because it is so adorable and just plain fun to draw.  Enjoy and check out the others out at the Diva's place.


  1. Both are really nice, but I really like that little bit of brown in the top one. I agree the Bunzo is cute. It looks like it is bubbling up under the other patterns like an overflowing washing machine!

  2. I like both of them. I think your scrolled feathers is very nice as is sprigs. The brown tone is nice too.
