"It's a String Thing" #181

It's Tuesday, your good news day!

We begin with a string that is actually a tangle:  Zen Bud by Daniele O'Brien.  I've drawn one tangle a bit larger than the space ~

IAST #181 String by Adele Bruno, CZT
Based on the tangle Zen Bud by Daniele O'Brien

The tangles we will use include:

Pozer by Beth Snoderly
A flowery tangle to mix with our flowery string.
Puf by Carole Ohl, CZT
As Carole notes on her blog post (Link) about Puf, it is similar to Yincut but when drawn to her step out, it can be added to odd shaped spaces and the result is pleasantly surprising.
Flukes by Zentangle®
Note thatFlukes can be drawn in any direction.  (I usually tangle it with the darkened spaces in the opposite direction of Suzanne McNeill's step out.)

While Zen Bud and the string resemble a flower, your finished tile does not necessarily have to capture that.  As with all tiles, the tangles may lead you in a totally unexpected direction and the string may take on a much different shape and/or look.

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