Turning Old into New, Diva #195

This week's Diva Challenge is a bit of a fun one!
And the old becomes new.
Take a favorite tangle, one I use all the time,
and make it new.
Change it up.
Change the structure.

Kind of reminds me of a Bible verse :).
Romans 12:2 actually.

Be not conformed to this world:
but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind,
that ye may prove what is that good,
and acceptable, and perfect
will of God.

The Diva Challenge was fun this week.
I took popsicles and urchin -
which are normally fill patterns for me -
and turned them into a gridlock spectacular! 
Hahaha!

I plan to do more of this kind of drawing.
Heading out of town soon for a few days.
I hear Disney World calling my name.
I like to go sit in a hotel room and draw for a few days, 
depending on theme park food to keep me alive.
And ice cream.
And jelly bellies if I get to Downtown Disney.
It's a tough life,
but someone's gotta do it!

  5. Great job. You got them in a grid but looks like they are straining to get out. Was that influenced by your wanting to go to sleep or being anxious to set out for Disney?
