"It's a String Thing" #129

It's Tuesday, your good news day!

As the first month of the New Year comes to a close this week, we will begin a series of three heart themed challenges.  

I promise that if you are a fan of hearts (as I am), you will love what's in store.

I promise, too, that if you aren't particularly drawn to hearts (pun intended) - you will fall in love with these new  and not-so-new patterns.

We begin with TanglePatterns String 169 by Beth Snoderly ~

 The string gives just a hint of a heart with its intersecting curves - just enough to lend itself to these tangles:

This newer tangle has a light and airy feel to it.

This tangle can be dense or light, used as a filler, or pop a few here and there.

Sweet and simple, this pattern can be aura-ed and embellished in countless ways.

To access step outs for the patterns, click on their names.

Simply pencil the string line onto your tile and tangle away! Keep in mind that string lines are suggestions and let the patterns lead the way.
