LaBel - new tangle pattern

enlarge by clicking on picture
LaBel is a pattern based on a border I saw on a painted Russian tray. On the tray it was painted in gold, as most Russian trays are. I saw a pattern that would lend itself well to zentangle.

-Start with a line of simple spirals and alternate the direction you pull them.
-Add two humps (or the top of a heart shape) from the top of one spiral to the next.
-Dots go at the middle of the two humps.

Embellish and shade as desired.
