Starry Eyed Surprise - Weekly Challenge #4


The Diva has a beautiful star tattoo, that she and her husband got to commemorate their 5th wedding anniversary, thus the inspiration for this weeks challenge, “Starry eyed surprise”. Laura gave two wonderful examples on her blog

My interpretation led me to draw a typical star string and use paradox in each of the star sections… it needed more. I added strips of “coaster” and “meer” to the background. See small picture…. It needed more.

I got out my Bic fine tipped markers and added a little color and finally was satisfied with my tile.

Think I’ll go make another.

  11. Wow! Beautiful tangle. I love the use of Paradox on the star, I especially love the middle. I thought it looked great in b&w but the colour pushes it over the edge!

  17. Lovely use of colors. They make the star pop off of the paper and give it its proper brightness.
