Going around in circles

This week the Diva’s challenge is to make a string out of circles.  I had a whole evening to myself yesterday which meant I had a few hours for nothing but this challenge.  I used the bottom of a glass and drew around it a few times then filled the spaces which that left me with.  I enjoy filling spaces, it’s leaving spaces blank which always challenges me.

I particularly enjoyed spending time on the shading which makes such a difference, but I forgot to take ‘before’ and ‘after’ shots which was something I promised myself I would do last week after seeing others who had done just that.  Note to self: next week remember!!


Now it’s off to the dentist then I’ll be sitting down with a cup of tea and having a look at how everyone else has handled circle strings.

    Love this one Linda. Inspiring me to do some on such a nasty day. Can’t think of a better way to fill the day.

  2. Your scaling is so effective, you hardly need the shading. I’m going green!

      Thank you. I’m sure the shading gives it more depth but must do a before and after shot so that I can see the difference x

    I absolutely LOVE that gear in the bottom right side. I am drawn to tangles that go in and out of the paper and also Steampunk, and that has both. Beautiful work.

    Hope the visit at the dentist was not to bad. You evening alone was not wasted as you made this beautiful tile!

    That’s a really beautiful tile. Your strokes and lines look like printed. Great!!!

    Nice transitions of your tangles. I like filling spaces also. Took me a while to get comfortable with leaving spaces. I still have to remind myself about it.

    Very striking tile – and you keep your lines so even and parallel – well done!

    Beautiful work, Linda. It is so precise that it looks like an engraving. Wonderful.

    great selection of tangles. I like to take lots of photos as they do help when I question the impact of various decisions and checking whether the shading makes a difference is definitely one of them.
