Hurry Holli ! tangleation

The Diva challenge this week asked us to do something without using a tangle pattern that we already knew. We were asked to create something of our own. I found this to be a real challenge. I didn't know what to do. So I played around with different things. I scribbled on scraps of paper. Finally I decided to do something with my own tangleation of two tangle patterns.

I've named this Hurry Holli as it was inspired by Hurry and Hollibaugh.

Start with an orb - or a circle drawn with a pencil. You can use a template if you like. 
-Draw four lines that curve across the middle - mimicking the shape of the circle. 
-As in Hollibaugh, draw additional curved lines that go behind the first lines. Don't worry about copying my example.
-Continue drawing sets of curved lines until most of the area is covered. You can drop down to sets of three lines when you want.
-Add short lines in sets of three or four to fill in any empty areas.
-Shade the orb as shown (or whatever way you prefer!) In the step-out above, the left side has only the initial pencil shading while the right side has been blended.

  7. Thanks for creating this tangleation and for sharing! I just drew it in my book of tangles and it looks great. I did the shading and blended gently.
