This is another of those envelopes that I really like but not for the reasons you might think. I had done the outline of the volleyball in black. Rather than create a tartan pattern around the volleyball, I decided to doodle within the outline. I doodled in a dark green in one direction. I didn't like the look so I doodled purple lines in a competing direction. While better, I still didn't the look. I then took the orange and created an outline of the actual ball shape and filled in all of the negative space within the volleyball.
I am very much pleased with the result. The moral of the story--keep working at it until you end up with a result you like.
