Thursday's Tangle - Kuke

"Kuke" is by Katy Abbott CZT and her pattern is found HERE on her blog. The step-out shows to draw the "Y" first and then to draw a circle around it. I found it much easier to draw the circle (orb) first and draw the "Y" inside of it.

I thought they looked a lot like beads so, beader that I am, I strung them together. I added strands of "Beadlines" which are not a part of this pattern. When I added the shading to the "Beadlines", I penciled in and blended the shadow for the strings first. Then, I used my tortillon to smudge in the individual bead shadows along the strings with the graphite already on the tortillon.


  1. Awesome shading (not to mention the actual pattern!); it looks so 3-D. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Lovely! Leave it to a beader, but your additions just seem right... ;-)
