So, did you watch the Royal Wedding? I didn't expect to, but it was rather hard to escape. And by the time it was on, I was excited for it. I didn't stay up, but I did record it. And though I haven't watched all of it yet (like the part at Buckingham), I've seen enough to see it was absolutely beautiful.
So by the time the Diva's challenge came around, to do a ZIA inspired by the royal wedding, I'd already been thinking of doing one.
It just took me all week because I found one pattern in Westminster that I obsessed over.
But, finally, it's done! :D
Done in micron pens on the usual cardstock, but this time I used an HB pencil to shade. Which, of course, didn't show up too well in the scan. Oops. There is shading there, really...
Tangles: Nightbridge, my new pattern Quirepine, a variation on Opus, sanibelle, sundoo, and chambray. Anything else was just pattern as it came, not a conscious use of anything named. (Though the lace around William's window is similar to 'lace')
And, the result of a week of failed attempts at deconstruction, persistence paid off. Here's my new pattern Quirepine, based on the white-on-blue pattern in the windows of the choir area. Or, as they spell it at Westminster, 'quire'. The largest motif reminded me of the pineapple, hence the name.
