Challenge #134 - Beamz

Beamz......lovely, but so, so geometric. I definitely deal better with curves.

I couldn't really think of anything particularly clever, or original, so just switched up the line direction/sizes of the boxes and came up with this:


Any lines that ran through a box I omitted making it hard to see where the design originated (somewhere up near the top left). I don't love it, but I like it better than I thought I would.

My other version barely has any resemblance to the original pattern, and was likely influenced by LeeAnn's wonderful organic design which I saw on facebook before I got around to checking out the challenge this week. Basically, I turned all corners into curves and made daisies from the loops.




We had a fabulous week of unseasonably warm weather and have now dropped right back into reality with the usual cold early spring days - the wood heater is in action again. I did get all the seeds started and in their little greenhouses on the verandah. I am excitedly rubbing my hands together anticipating all the fabulous summer produce we will grow this year!

  1. I think it is original. You did not put them in a straight line. Reminds me of a mobile. I also thought LeeAnn's ZIA was her own unique organic style. Your daisy's do look nice.

  2. Both are lovely Helen! The striping in the first one is impressive and the flowers? Well they're gorgeous.
    Here in The Netherlands summer is almost over and I envy your spring :-)

  3. Both are wonderful! Each of them has a separate impression. The first one has a nice 3D-effect an I like this straight-line composition. The second one is so charming and delicate! Very nicely done!
