Diva Challenge #113

This weeks Diva Challenge was called Hip To Be Square. This was a challenge for me without realizing it was at first. I know I tend to lean towards more organic and free flowing tangles rather than linear and grid like. I think I tend to lean more towards the free flow organic tangles because it allows me to monitor my mood, stress level, etc.

Using squares as my string actually brought about a tad bit of "OM MY GOD! This isn't me!" panic attack. I pressed on working with the uncomfortable feeling of rigidness. Deep breaths, relax your muscles, and pretend you are holding a robin's egg; tickle the paper..." I managed to finish in one sitting, especially since it is an ATC, and was fairly relaxed when I was done.

Getting ready to post it and having it sit in front of me while I write this I had to chuckle... no wonder I relaxed... I still chose curvy, flowing tangles for my squares.

So even though I didn't post this on time for the Diva Slide Show, I still wanted to share it in the middle of the chaos of closing on a house and still battling a cough. I also discovered I relax with free form flowingness (if that makes any sense). I should try to tangle my cough and see what the ends up looking like! Sorry rambling at warp speed starting to set in... Enjoy the Round Squares :)
