I'm really not sure whether I've seen this idea somewhere before, or whether it just popped out of my head ... but I wanted to see what would happen when you cut through some of the outer rings of multi-strip eccentric coils - and this little flower is the result:
I quite liked the effect of this, so I tried another one with a little asymmetric curling added in:
Then finally I lost the plot completely and created this very abstract-looking fish (the cut shape of the eccentric coils kept on shouting "fish tails" out to me!!):
Well, it keeps me amused ... and now, I really must get on with making some more cards, as my market stock is getting worryingly low!
So much to quill ... so little time ...
