"It's a String Thing" #137

It's Tuesday, your good news day!

It is also the Tuesday of Easter week.  With the first day of Spring behind us and the promise of good things to come, let's begin with this string ~

Easter Week String by Adele Bruno, CZT

Next, let's review some past tangles by using the following:

Zenith  by Maria Thomas, Zentangle® co-founder

Zenith was one of the tangles used in IAST #107 (click here to view the lovely tiles from all over the world)  I'm always inspired by seeing how other tanglers use a pattern, you may find an idea you like or adapt one to your own.

Warped Eggs  by Livia Chua

Warped Eggs was featured in IAST #32 (Click here to view.)

As a side note, looking back and reading through the names of the participants is very nostalgic.
The first tile listed was from a new tangler named "Lily Moon".   Fast forward 104 weeks - and much tangling - to see how her style has evolved.
Use Lily's example as motivation to keep tangling - eventually (if it hasn't already) your very own style will emerge.
Thank you Lily, for your inspiration.

Mel Mel  by me, Adele Bruno, CZT

We used my tangle in IAST #98 (Click here to view.)  With spring upon us, a floral pattern seemed appropriate.  While this tangle may take a bit of practise to master, I hope you will find - as I do - that it is one of your favorites.

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

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.
