Diva's challenge this week (#106) asks us to be inspired... by the Year of the Snake. Check out all the inspirational solutions to this week's challenge.
I was sort of creeped out by the snake (not one of my faves as far as animals go), but the shapes and patterns their bodies create are beautiful, so that's where I started. I wanted to include a heart, since it is Valentine's week. I like the juxtaposition of the coiley, sometimes creepy, always slithery, snake with a little valentine with lace and darling heart, dangly things. I began my ZIA trying to explore a Celtic knot but got a little side tracked with fun textures, curves, and tangles.
I Betweed the heck out of my snake (love that tangle), added lot's of swirls, Printemps, some Aura Knot inspired stuff, Tipple, and BTL Jooz. I let the organic undulations of the snake form flow through this ZIA. Then I added the year, a few touches of red, and some danglies. I tried to show volume and texture and a little sweetness and lacy stuff. Happy YOTS and Valentine's Day!
