Weekly Challenge 2: Use a two-pencil string

Laura Harms, CZT, issues a weekly challenge to all zentangle lovers. This week's challenge is to use a two-pencil string, a fun technique I discovered and posted about earlier.  I've been doing a lot of two-pencil strings recently so the challenge was more, 'Which one to post?' On this tile there were three rather round areas, so I used Drupe, Daggerly, and Hurak├ín to fill them. And I DO seem to like doing stripes on cylindrical shapes! (Must remember that simplicity idea though.)

  1. very nice...I especially love the black and white stripes with what looks like the light glinting off the elongated cone (that was a long explanation *grin*).

  11. Wow. Thanks everybody!
    Beating drums... I like that idea, Shelly. Maybe it's the 'round' shapes filled with concentric tangles?
    Kit, when I do artwork, the glasses come off and I'm about 15 cms. from the paper!
    The stripes have become a bit of a signature for me, but they're not hard to do.
