This week's Tangled Thursday challenge was "paisley". Simple - paisley is evidently my favorite shape because it sneaks it's way into nearly everything I draw. But it turned out to be more of a challenge than I expected to dedicate an entire tangle to paisley.
I know I'm dating myself again - as I did in the daisy challenge - but paisley immediately brings thoughts of the 1960's , hippies and psychodelic:
Drawn with Neon Sharpies on 5x7 heavy sketch paper
My second thought was water drops:
It's a very simple tangle - only uses four patterns - but I like it for it's simplicity. This was also drawn with Sharpies on 5x7 heavy sketch paper.
A word about Sharpies. I have purchased a variety of types of pens including some comparatively expensive architect pens, but I always return to the good old fine-line sharpie. I like the width of line, I like the way it flows, and I like the way the ink reacts on paper. I buy them by the dozens at Dollar General. I still break out the high-dollar pens for detailed work, but most of the time it's a Sharpie. I'm a simple girl!
