I used my 'double pencil' on the first tile. It gave me some rather small square sections. A few of the lines were darker than the rest and it sort of looked like a mat. I used Hollibaugh to separate the squares and Msst for the fringe. The border began with Seljuk, which I really liked until I added other things, then the white was too white.
|Tangles: Black Pearlz, Hollibaugh, Msst, Tortuca|

Up and Across, Cubine, Sindoo, Yew-Dee, Tortuca, Ripples, Eye-Wa,
Fleurette, Dex, Gottago, Demi, Earth Rising, Flukes, Paradox, Well
So I drew all the lines in white and was intending to add highlighting in white and be done with it. Then color popped into my mind and I decided to do some ribbons in color. Then all hell broke loose. Multiple colors! Black Glaze pen in the black squares (it makes the black so-o-o much deeper)! Two-tone gray highlighting on the other ribbons! Metallic inks at the edges of the colored ribbons!
I really like it! Believe it or not, there is very little of the original black paper showing alone.
