"It's a String Thing" #18

It is Tuesday, your good news day!

'Tis the Christmas season and in the midst of these happy (and busy) days this "String Thing" is purposefully simple.

I begin with a confession - I worked a bit backwards this week. I first chose a tangle pattern, and then a string.  As it turns out, I am using my own string this week because it suits the tangle that I have in mind for Christmastime - Verdigogh

Verdigogh is one of those wonderful official Zentangle® patterns that at first blush appears complicated, but after just a bit of practice, unfolds easily and elegantly. 

You can find Maria Thomas' step out and variations for Verdigogh here on the Zentangle blog.

We begin with String 062 by yours truly via Linda Farmer:
While Veritgogh is the only tangle pattern assigned to this challenge, feel free to embellish the negative spaces as you wish. 

To Recap - use:
String 063 - by me, Adele Bruno
Verdigogh - an original Zentangle pattern

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