This week's Diva challenge was a lot of fun! As per the Diva's UMT, Use My Tangle, challenges, we were asked to experiment with a pattern submitted by a fellow tangler. I had never seen the pattern Birds on a Wire by Mary Kissel, and I don't know how I lived without it! The pattern is reminiscent of Fescue and Mooka yet has a lot of variety. Fill the base with small patterns, or embellish the "birds" for a different look.
My challenge piece this week is another watercolor resist bookmark in the making (laminating and pretty ribbons coming soon). I used Birds on a Wire in several sections, playing with different embellishment. What fun!
Even my daughter likes this pattern! In our rubber stamping, or "arts and crafts" session as she called it, we played with an ocean set that had a wave stamp that looks very similar to these "birds." Then again, I may just be seeing patterns again everywhere. It's funny how that happens now. :-)
