"It's a String Thing" #24

It's Tuesday - your good news day!

We are reaching back into the files of Linda Farmer's String collection this week to String #015.  It was created by Courtney Franz, CZT.

In honor of Courtney and working a bit backwards, we will use patterns that begin with the letter 'Y' - the last letter of Courtney's first name.  Since her last name has five letters, we'll use five tangles.

Yabbit by Margaret Bremner, CZT
Yang by Genevieve Crabe, CZT
Yew-dee by Peg Farmer, CZT
Y-ful Power by Shoshi
Yincut and official Zentangle® pattern

These tangles can be found here on Linda Farmer's Tangle Patterns.

Be sure to read the write-ups about these patterns when you search for the step outs.
You will learn how Yabbut got it's name, how Yew-dee came to be and what it was named for, and you'll see the beautifully illustrated variations for Y-ful Power by Shoshi.

Use as few or as many of these patterns as you would like.  

Simply pencil the string line onto your tile and tangle away!

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...
