I am the Diva's Weekly Challenge #220

This week's challenge for I am the Diva is to create a zentangle using the All Boxed Up tangle.

Once upon a time, drawing straight lines was easy for me. My hands were a bit shaky here. My major mess ups actually contributed a lot to this tile. I colored over them in black and then drew on top with a gelly roll pen. I think it did an amazing thing for the dark/light balance that I often struggle with. The checkerboard patterning from Knightsbridge felt like a very natural way to tie things together.

There is no shading at all on this tile. Most of the time it helps, I think it may have detracted from the overall here had I used it.

Great way to reclaim a "happy accident!"

While I like using the shading, not using it is also beautiful ... especially if you want to be able to see the original pattern. Nicely done.

I love the variety of ways you have drawn this tangle and the black and white variations add so much to it. I think that you are right, in some cases shading is not necessary. Nicely done!
