Twinsie Tuesday: Interlocking Designs

I had this whole fancy puzzle design in mind for today's Twinsie Tuesday theme, but then I smacked myself upside my own head and said, "Oi, genius! You have to get on a plane in, like, 36 hours, you still have a dozen posts to schedule, and you haven't even thought about packing yet." Also, there's the part where I've never, ever even tried something like this before, so yeah, let's maybe try walking for today. (Is that what sensible people act like all the time? It feels weird.)

And this is exactly why I enjoy having these TT prompts, because while I've literally had this technique on my to-do list for years, other stuff kept jumping the queue--but design this was legitimately fun to do, and I'm pleasantly surprised with the enormously gloopy mess that it somehow managed not to turn into.

Before I started, I thought it would look awesome to have these two similar shades but with the different finishes (China Glaze Recycle and Color Club Beyond). Then I got into the dotting bit and thought that what would look really awesome would be the ability to see what I was doing while I was doing a brand new thing where I still wasn't entirely sure what I was doing. So, note for next time, better lighting and/or a little more colour contrast will make it bunches easier on the eyes. I have to admit, though, I kinda like the greys.
