"It's a String Thing" #7

It's Tuesday - your good news day!

This week's challenge is a FUN one - something slightly different.  It begins with String 08 from Linda Farmer's Tangle Patterns, submitted by Hope Martin.  This is what it looks like:

In honor of Hope, we will use the tangle Minouche by CZT® Nathalie Marinoff.  It stood out for two reasons:
1.  Both of Hope's initials - H and M - can be found in the word Minouche.
2.  It is a new tangle - just published on Tangle Patterns, September 18. 

As an added challenge, use only Minouche and create a monotangle.  

To refresh - a monotangle is a completed Zentagle® piece using one pattern.  (The term monotangle is credited to Laura Harms, CZT of iamthedivaczt.blogspot.com .) 

You may use variations of the same pattern.  Nathalie illustrates a few in her step-out found on Tangle Patterns.  You may also vary the size and orientation of your dot grid for added interest. 

While at first glance this challenge may seem limited - it really is full of possibilities!

To recap: 
Use String 08 from Tangle Patterns
Use the only the pattern Minouche by Nathalie Marinoff, CZT

If this is your first visit, welcome!  If you are new to Zentangle®, welcome! 

This exercise is for beginner and seasoned tanglers alike.  Use it as an excuse to keep up with your art work, take time for yourself, learn new patterns, share your talent...you get the idea!
