Siri Magical 8

This week’s Diva Challenge is to use Simone Menzel’s tangle Siri. I checked out the focus tangle on Pattern-Collections.com and decided to use yesterday’s pattern focus of Magical 8 by Smita Toke. I also looked at the weekly string on Pattern-Collections and decided to go ahead and use string 68, well something similar. ;)

I went ahead and did my border and string. Then worked a little backwards on Magical 8, since I drew the string before the 8’s. Next I decided to fill Siri in as the background but on a medium scale. I only had four repetitions of the set. Since I drew it into the background, some of the details are lost but it still looks decent. :)

Here is my tile before shading.

DC#354 ~ LIfeofjoy.meAs always, I’m happy for shading to cover up my wonky lines. :) I really had to concentrate when I was drawing Siri and I’m certain I didn’t do it justice but I like the effect.

Here it is after shading.

DC#354 shaded ~ LIfeofjoy.meI opted to make the loops of my string into solid shapes instead of empty ones.

Thank you for stopping by. I appreciate it when you leave comments. :)

If you are curious about my site, I write about life happenings on Fridays, raising kids on Thursdays, food on Tuesdays (I’ve change my lifestyle of eating to Trim Healthy Mama, which is a low glycemic way of eating), about marriage on Mondays, and of course, art on Wednesdays. I hope you’ll be blessed and encouraged by the content here.

Until next time, God bless,
