You might think, as I was the incredibly lucky winner of a stunning set of ''Spiral' cards by Michele Beauchamp (aka Shelly Beach) in her recent giveaway, that I might have had enough inspiration to create my own stunning spirals as part of this week's Diva Challenge. (Wasn't that a very, very long sentence....spiralling around and around....must be catching!)
And the answer is that - whilst I studied my beautiful gift and made copies of some of Shelly's trademark tangles - I simply couldn't recreate anything like the elegant ones she does. Beyond my skills and abilities. But I did my best and really enjoyed this challenge. For a little while I was tempted to use Hollibaugh to create a huge ball of 'string' - as String Theory came into Laura's description of the challenge - but I resisted!
My first attempt was a tangled spiral surrounded by the ever-wonderful 'Printemps'.
I wanted to do something a bit different, so had another go this morning. I quite like this one and the process was absolutely as Zen as it gets!!
I used just three tangles - Aura Leah, Beedz and Florz with a spiral variation, rather than the usual square.
I can see I have managed to incorporate some hair, which must be on my scanner - must get that sorted!!
Hope you have a wonderful weekend - off to check out what other wonderful tangles have been spiralling out and keeping going this week.
