For Chinese New Year, the Diva challenged us to create something snakelike for the Year of the Snake.
I created my "snake" string by taking one of my daughter's lacing strings and laying it on my paper. I roughly traced the outlines. I decided to play with some scaly patterns for this ZIA and used Bales, Cadent, and Huggins. I just found an awesome new pattern by Shoshi called Y-Ful Power. I thought it was a lot of fun to create and to shade.
I filled in my snake shape and shaded to make it rise above the rest a bit.
