DC#205 combined with String Thing #80

For starters I just have to thank those that left comments on last week’s tile. They are greatly appreciated and are truly encouraging!!! Thank you ever so much!

Now, I must admit that I did not like the Diva Challenge this week. She used the Chinese New Year as the theme and asked us to work in a goat. At first I copied her goat string but decided I did not want to do that, so in my tile you will find a teeny tiny little goat head on the bottom left corner.

Since I was less than enthusiastic with the Diva Challenge, I thought I might try my hand at the String Thing challenge. The challenge uses string #80 and the two tangles to utilize were both new to me. As is sometimes the case, the one that looked easiest turned out to be hardest for me, namely Inaura, and the one I thought would me most difficult turned out to be easiest for me, Kozy.

I don’t believe I will share this with Tickled to Tangle even though I did do the challenge because I just don’t like it that much and don’t really want my first time sharing there to be one that I’m not all that happy with. I do like it better smaller. See? But I’m still not very happy with it.

I thought I’d show where the string was, so you could get an idea of why I did what I did with it.

Oh well, it is what it is. I did enjoy learning Kozy and will probably play around with it a bit more in the future.

Until next time, God bless,

  1. You’re being a little hard on yourself. That goat thing was a challenge. I spent a loooong time on mine, trying to free hand draw a goat, resulting in something that reflects the fact that I went to law school—not art school — for a reason. 😉 I think your tile actually does have an Asian feel to it—-ironically, especially when you outline the string in red. Happy Lunar New Year.

  2. I did the It’s a String Thing challenge, this week too. I struggled with the string. Your treatment is very clever. Love the way you snuck the goat in – very nice.
