"It's a String Thing" #168

It's Tuesday, your good news day!

Here we are at IAST #168 and it is time for our annual ode to Cannie Corns (a name coined by my children).

By Cannie Corns, I mean the sweet treat known as Candy Corn.  For those of you who are not familiar with this airy, sweet, marshmallow-y treat, they are not only colorful, they are very yummy, too.

For a bit of reference, here are the links to two previous Cannie Corn challenges:
2014  IAST #64
2015  IAST #116

Every October, I look forward to the new ways  images of Candy Corn are incorporated into fall merchandise.  This is my latest acquisition - a new Nora Fleming charm for this little vase and stand ~

And here are a few samplings of Candy Corn that I found on a recent shopping trip:

 ...a gift bag...

...pajama pants...

...a toddler shirt (which I promptly purchased for my granddaughter)...

...a plastic serving tray...

Just a little photographic proof that I am not alone in my obsession!

For the challenge, we begin with this string ~

The tangles we will use include:

Tira by Ragged Ray
My daughter, Isabella, suggested that I find a "spidery" tangle.  This new one came to mind right away.

Florz by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas, Zentangle® founders
...so many possibilities here with our theme...

Fang by Celia Norman
How could we pass up a tangle with a name like that?

While the string lines resemble candy corn, your end result is not meant to look like any one thing in particular - tangles are non-representational.  
On the other hand, Zentangle Inspired Art often is representational, so please feel free to do either.

Step outs for the patterns can be found by clicking their names above and/or TanglePatterns.

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