I decided it was about time for me to tackle this style, so I got a
book and really studied it. I realized there are really only a few
design elements and went with them, and it turned out pretty cool.
1) Paisleys
2) Cornucopia-looking things
3) Variable width lines- some thin, some thick
4) Mostly stays along one line instead of across whole hand
5) Little no-detail flowers with stems
6) Froufrou- dots, thicker-at-one-end lines, bumpy lines at the edges
of stuff
7) Forget about symmetry but keep a steady line

I did one just off the top of my head and it turned out pretty well.
