Embracing the Yuck - A Diva's Weekly Challenge

This week's guest blogger at Chez Diva challenged us to embrace the yuck and draw our piece entirely with our non-dominant hand. For me that is my left hand. I am one of those people who can manage to do simple things with my left hand, but never, ever drawing! I found myself going back to basics. Slowing down the pace, using a simple string, rotating the tile, nibbling on  chocolate....

Tangles Used: Festune, Kathy's Dilemma, Fescu, Msst
I enjoyed the process and can imagine doing this to break through an "artist's block."

  4. Brilliant to use MSST! The tangle looks so much more free form and awesome with a non-dominant hand! And three cheers for your chocolate adaptation to make it go easier! I thought it was a good idea to use a slant board, but that's nothing compared to chocolate!!!!!
