brayd - diva challenge #82 no. 2

When I was doodling brayd ideas, I made a mistake on the overlap, and sketched my lines a little too big, I just kept going and really liked the outcome - as if the brayd was threaded through itself.

So, then I decided I would sketch a big loopy string that crossed back on itself and try to create this effect more deliberately. I'm happy with the result, love the idea and will definitely use it again when I can be a bit more patient with my directional lines, etc. many are pretty haywire on this, along with my erratic highlighting. lol.

I LOVE playing with those scrolly bits at the end.......I could do that all day. Simple little dragonflies to add a bit of balance to the design.

anyway here is the result:

PS....accidently linked to my blog page instead of to the post for my previous challenge response, and, since I cannot change my link - I have predated this one so that it appears earlier - if you want to check out my other version of brayd, you'll need to go back to the main blog page.

  2. For some reason, this brought "locks for love" to mind. Your ends are wonderful, as are the delightful dragon flies.
