Playing with concentric patterns.
The one made of maple seeds turned out rather Victorian looking to me, or maybe Edwardian. As if it was made by some English gentlewoman sitting in her drawing room on a lazy afternoon to pass the time.
I'm not sure if it is done or not. I may break out the birdseed.
The second one is burnt shibori, I am unsure of weather I like this result. My first thought was... not complex enough, I do like the folds though... so maybe.
