The Whimsey Grid

Letter Love Lesson 5 "Whimsey Grid"

Office Max metallic markers, Sharpie Highlighters, Copic Sketch Markers,
Recollections Signature Special white marker, Sharpie Pen, Identi-pen Markers
Hampton Art Glimmer Chalk, Faber Castell Pitt Pen

The Whimsey Grid is what Joanne Sharpe calls this undulating grid.  I can see lots of possibilities:
looks like flags or streamers floating in the wind.  Prayer Flags. 
Could be the index for a book (yes, it will be).  Lists of goals and inspirational words. 
A life spanning to-do list.  Since its so playful its a great place to experiment with fonts. 
Reminds me also, a bit, of Art Nouveau.  Love those expressive and organic lilting lines.
