Diva #92 - Stripes

iamthedivaczt
The Diva's Challenge this week was String Theory vs. Stripes. I chose to interpret this a little different that everyone else. Not so unusual for me to be different - sorry, Laura! When I read the challenge all I wanted to do was play with the tangle called Striping. It's  been one of my favorites for the past week or so. I hope you all don't mind me changing it up a bit. You can check out all the stripe/strings here. You could even post one of your own :).

  1. Looks great, Alice. What have you done your highlighting with - it's so soft and translucent - love it.

  3. What a super example of a monotangle - I've had Strircles on the brain too!! Looks like I'm going to be a CZT next year - investigating flights etc....... R determined for me to go - be great to meet up. R insistent we get me an iPhone so he knows where I am. He's amazing.

    1. do they have dates set for next year yet? that would be great if we could get together! you will be a wonderful CZT! and the training is worth it even if you don't teach. i don't really want to teach even though i have done a couple classes. i mainly just wanted to learn. sounds like you have a good hubby - you need to keep him around :)

  4. Having done an unconventional one myself, think that yours fits great. Is a great job on the shading and the highlighting. Also a really good example of how a monotangle can be so fun and beautiful.

  8. I love using striping as well. Although I didn't use it for my challenge this week. But I love seeing how everyone interprets the challenges differently.

  10. Its great how you interpreted the challenge. It is what i like the most of the challenges, that everyone make such a different things. Its great inspirstion, to do other things that someone would normaly do. I love your shading and highlighting even if it is done in PS. So great striping stripe challenge.
