This little tangle is just a hoot to draw as a “tail” along a string. Of course you could use it as a filler if you really wanted to, but I think it’s whimsical and fun to just have hanging around the edges of my designs.
Boxtel is like most of the other line-weaving tangles I’ve shared with you on my blog – it’s quick and easy and has multiple options for shading or modifying to meet your interests. I’ve shown you a circle option in the video and on the pattern worksheet at the end of this posting. You could really use any shape you want – just remember to add the dot inside the shape on either side of the line that runs through the middle and you’re good to go! 🙂
On this piece I’ve used it as the main element of the overall design. It was accomplished using sepia micron pen in a small sketch book I carry around with me in my purse. Wandering through the botanical gardens and looking at the brick walkway had me inspired to create a tangle similar to the patterns I was walking on. The result was this “Creative Pathways” artful sketch and the Boxtel design.

Here’s the video showing you how to draw Boxtel along a string in the middle of a project page. I hope this helps you understand the few steps it takes to draw this design on your projects too!
