My piece was created in my 2014 Tangle-A-Day Calendar by Carole Ohl, CZT. I love working in the book, but I can rarely get it to scan well enough. I think too much light gets in when I scan it. When I try to edit, the shading gets too washed out. Oh well, it's a sunnier version than in person. That can't be a bad thing, right?
I created this piece in the imaging waiting room before having my first routine mammogram. Joy. I felt inspired by breasts (gee, I wonder why). I pencilled a breast-inspired string similar to this:
The string is basically three concentric circles. Keep in mind they don't have to be perfectly straight or central! No two breasts are alike or perfectly round, right? The string I created in the calendar reminded me of a fried egg, to be perfectly honest.
I love how strings, like our tangles, don't have to be perfect. They don't even have to be used at all. Strings can help guide us along our tangling way or merely give us a starting off point. We can follow the lines, carefully staying with, or we can venture out on a tangling adventure.
If I were drawing my string after the exam, I think the circles would all be flattened. Ouch!
