"It's a String Thing" #40

 It is Tuesday - your good news day!

In my post yesterday, "It's a String Thing" #39 Tiles, Ragged Ray mentioned the concept of a tile within a tile that Zentangle® co-founder, Maria Thomas often illustrates.  (For example, this tile of Maria's and this one as well.)

That idea came to mind when I saw TanglePatterns String 043 by Beth Snoderly.

The step out and links to these tangles can be found here on TanglePatterns.

Remember to use as few or as many of these tangles as you wish.

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