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.

  3. 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!

  12. 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!
