‘Pathways’ – I see the ‘Sashings‘ component of this design like the ‘Pathways of our lives’ – sometimes ‘hidden’ and sometimes ‘hidden in plain sight’. The pathways of our lives are not always easy to see, but once we see them, they seem so obvious.
When I began the ‘Sashings’ series, I had not given any real thought as to how many pieces I would create in this series. I have decided that 12 seems like a good number :). For me, 12 in a series represents a good balance between enough to call it a series. enough to create a challenge for me and not too many that I get bored with the same design concept. So, 12 it is for this series:)
Following my usual plan of attack to create these designs, I began with the basic outline as shown at the left. From there, I completed adding parabolic curves to one of the block components and then continued along the lines of ‘what if’ I tried adding ‘XXX’. For the most part, as it is all based on geometry, I do have a rough idea of what will work and what won’t work.
If I don’t know if a concept will work, I will simply try drawing the idea lightly in pencil first. The other alternative is to try out new ideas in a sketch book before adding it to the design. Finally, I added the ‘Flowers’ within the ‘Sashings’. The flowers are a simple spirograph pattern with some hand drawn details added.
I love the set of 4 Copic Multiliners – the .3 size. I hate to admit it, but I have bought several sets over the last few years. They just work :). To ease my conscience, I decided to use just these 4 markers in this design along with black – a Copic .3 Multiliner of course! I don’t have any affiliation with Copic, I just like their markers:)
Tangled Line Art Designs Custom Products
Some of my Tangled Line Art designs are not in the correct proportions to be able to make them available for purchase as a jigsaw. ‘Pathways’, as a 1000 piece jigsaw is a decent challenge – there are lots of lines, I thought I would just mention that:). It’s a challenge but certainly achievable.
This design and many other Tangled Line Art designs are available as jigsaw ranging in size from 285 pieces to 2000 pieces at my Custom Jigsaw shop. Each of the designs in The ‘Clock Strikes’ series is also available as a circular jigsaw here as well. Scroll through to select your favourite design.
A sincere thank you for visiting my site. I hope you enjoy looking around 🙂
