Facing pages in the book of Matthew.
A simple open work swirl pattern, drawn with ballpoint pen and colored intensely with prismacolor colored pencils. By colored intensely I mean I start coloring lightly and when I have the color that I want, then I go over it and press harder. Then I use a tissue on my finger or you can use a blending pencil to rub out all the coloring lines to make a uniform smoothness of color.
To start this kind of pattern, just doodle on a scrap paper to get the feel of it. Make one swirl or leaf, teardrop or heart. Then leave a space and follow the line of one side of your shape, adding a connecting side to it. Generally you will end up with two pointed end unless you are making a leaf or blob shaped end. There are no rules, just go with the flow. Soon you can draw it without thinking too much about it.
