UMT: All Boxed Up

A new month, a new tangle to learn over at I Am the Diva CZT.  This month the tangles is called All Boxed Up from Alice Hendon.  This is a fun tangle and reminds me a lot of my own pattern Zuan Shi.  Alice's tangle is so simple though.  There are a lot of variations possible with this and I can't wait to use it more.

I started this tile with a stencil outline as my string.  I added the dot and dash to the outline. I know it has a name but I can't think of it.  While I was trying to think of what else to add, I decided to play with the idea of a mirror image. After coloring in half black, I added the All Boxed Up but managed to mess the variation that I planned on using.  No matter, it just adds more interest for the tile.  After that was done, I added more black and kept going with Printemps.

This was a fun tile to draw.  The gelly roll pen that I used for the white worked very well.  Maybe it was because I was drawing over the prismacolor marker or maybe it is because it is really warm and the ink likes it warm.  Whatever the reason, I was glad.

I hope that you all have a great week.  Thanks in advance for your wonderful comments and for stopping by.
