Diva Challenge no. 141: pointillism, hold the comets.

It's been a while since I jumped in on the weekly Diva challenge, and the recent one on the exploration of pointillism (stippling, technically, since I did mine in a single color) really grabbed my interest. Just FYI... if you think it takes a long time to do a tangle, try drawing it with teeny little dots instead of flowing lines! For me, this was an exercise in patience. And it really did force me to slow down, since dots tend to look a little more like comets when rushed. I think it was supposed to be a monotangle- using just one tangle pattern- but I wanted a more solid frame for contrast. So I settled for limiting myself to roundish things.

I'll definitely try this again... thanks to Laura, as always, for prying me out of my comfortable-habit zone.

Thanks for stopping by!
