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...
...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!
