actually, in my opinion, yeah... the shading did work! mebbe it doesn't look like a sheet of paper but the contrast really makes the tangle pop. i'd say well done!
FANTASTIC-- the shading is perfectI LOVE IT..every bit of it.... the design, and usually I am "miss symmetrical", so that background shaded on one side would not be something I would have thought of... but I LOVE IT. GREAT WORK- as always
A very nice zendala! I love the boldness of it and then, all of a sudden it seems, the flowers in the corners.
i like all the flowers :) it's a happy-looking tile!
I 'specially like your interweave frames, and shading on 1/2 the background. Nicely done!
