Weekly Challenge #84: "String Theory v. XI: Blind-Sighted

This week's Diva Challenge was to close your eyes and draw a 'blind string' and then deal with the beastly thing. I drew my outside boarder (traced a coaster), closed my eyes and drew the string. When I opened my eyes, about 1/2 -3/4 of an inch of graphite was actually inside the boarder, so I did something I never do on a challenge...  I started over. This time the majority of the lines landed inside the box so I just ignored what was outside and set off. Here is how it turned out:
My scanner decided to cough up a fur ball this morning and it's really grainy, but you get the general idea. Once I finally got the string down, I had fun and used some patterns that I had never used or hadn't used in a long time. Thanks for another great challenge Diva!

I think you did a wonderful challenge. The patterns are well chosen and there is a good balance between black-grey-white.
Thanks for stopping by at my blog!
Greetings from Belgium.

BTW: love the things in your etsy shop :)

This is a wonderful tile. Your tangles work so well together and who doesn't love a penquin?
