Weekly Challenge #8 – my attempt


Laura Harm’s challenge this week centered around a Heart for Artoo and using two of the previous challenges.  I chose “Eye Wide Shut”, drawing a string with my eyes closed.  From previous attempts I knew I’d come up with a small, tight string, and it left plenty of room on the page to draw a “Two Pencil Double String Heart”.
I’m using Zenbud by Danni 0’Brien, Beaded by Ann Griffin, my own Dizessa, and Antimicassar, which I’ll post instructions to, one of these days. There’s also some noodling around with a turtleshell idea I’m working on, and some variations on Striping and Moonwalk.

I’m not totally happy with the result.  I think I got a bit too much of a ‘meat’ look.

Artist Ambassador for Zebra Pens. I'm a self-taught artist who dances about with all sorts of artistic mediums. My main loves are Watercolor, Zentangle and Ballpoint pen. The subjects of my work are many and varied and change at whim. I'm a little bit crazy, but doesn't that come with being an artist? At my Life Imitates Doodles Blog, I post a list of resource links for Tangles, Tutorials and Giveaways two times a week. I also write reviews, hold giveaways and share my art work.

  1. Sandra, lovely job. The color is great and the highlights, to die for! Love your green background texture, it reminds me of one of my favorite Easter baskets. I'm sure Laura and Artoo will feel the love! You did a wonderful job with zen bud, thanks for the plug!

  2. I was going to say a similar thing to Dragon. The 'meat' look gives it a certain depth pertaining to a real heart. Lovely work!
