Sankeeg is the latest challenge given to us by 'The Diva'. She asked us to use a pattern designed by Maria Vennekens. The pattern itself was inspired by a super size Psyanky egg that was spotted in Edmonton, Canada. So, when I had a chance to get back to tangling after my trip, I decided that I had to do my tangling on an egg shape! The pattern is tricky to get done evenly and I'm sure you will notice I had a couple of shaky areas on the red egg. The white Gelly Roll pen from Sakura was perfect but I needed to do my design a little larger as the line is not as fine as the Micron pens. I highlighted the red egg with a chalk pencil and shaded the blue egg with a blue colored pencil. I think these will also work well as ornaments.
I have a special love for Pysanky. I learned it by chance from a friend back in college and have enjoyed working on this beautiful craft each spring. The picture below is of two of my favorite eggs.
