Diva #77: Fiore di Pietro

iamthedivaczt Photobucket
Fiore di Pietro, this week's Diva Challenge, for Peter's Memorial Book. This pattern was designed by Rho Densmore as she grieved the passing of her brother-in-law. Rho is putting together a memory book for the family and has asked to use our drawings in the book. Rho, yes, you may certainly use my drawings. What a wonderful thing you are doing for the family! You are all in my prayers.

Above was my two-page spread. I drew this out in my new smaller Smash Journal. The pages are small and compact, fun drawing in these books. Patterns on this page are: fiore di pietro, pokeleaf, and sunz (my pattern.) Coloring was done with Pitt Artist Pens.

Rho's new pattern was a real challenge for me. I spent 3-4 hours drawing this 2-page spread. I'm still relatively new at this and speed is not my friend. My fiore di pietro is different on this page, a variation so to speak. And totally not planned. It just turned out this way :). I do know what I did 'wrong', but I like the two different versions. This page patterns are: fiore di pietro, pokeleaf, and pokeroot. You can see all our contributions here, at I Am the Diva! Jump in and join us!

  1. I can't see anything wrong! They both look beautiful to me, especially the second one with the pretty red pokeroot. I must try that tangle, I love it when others draw it but I've never tried it myself.

  9. These are both so interesting. In the first one, your eyes go back and forth from one layer to the next! Both seem very outer space-like to me!
