"It's a String Thing" #226

It's Tuesday, your good news day!

It is also a double post day.  If you missed the results of IAST #225, click here, or scroll down to view.

This week, we will explore just one tangle like we did last week.
This time we will concentrate on Maria Thomas' new Rumpus.

Do we need a string for this tangle?  Not really. 
Begin your tangle by adding orbs at any place on your tile (either square or round) and let the tangle flow.

Embellish it as you wish. The technique of flicking the pen to embellish a tangle, newly dubbed enthatching, is demonstrated on Rick and Maria's instructional video, and would be very fun to try.

It will be a treat to have the time to dedicate to this marvelous tangle.


Here are the (Not so) Official Guidelines: 
* Challenges are posted on Tuesdays.
*Use the string posted for the week and some or all of the suggested patterns
* Submit a photo of your tile saved as jpg or scan your tile (300 dpi or higher) and save as a jpg
*Email your jpg file as an attachment to - brunoadelem@gmail.com
*Entries for IAST are to be submitted by Saturday evening of the week issued 

*Photos, notes, and the 'Tile for Honors' will be posted on the following Monday 

Send in your photos - you will encourage and inspire fellow Zentangle® enthusiasts all over the world.  WHEN YOU SIGN YOUR NAME, PLEASE INCLUDE WHERE YOU LIVE.

I look forward to your emails.


  1. Wow - what a mammoth undertaking Adele! Whilst I don't share the faith I can appreciate the way the project brought people together for a common purpose, and a sense of community that is perhaps growing rarer these days. Well done.

    1. Oops - why did I post this comment here as opposed to on your Christmas Story post? Who knows, but I did - but I'm sure you worked out where it was meant to land!

    2. Thank you for your notes. A comment can only be published where it was written, so here it is - just a post behind, so that's not too far off the mark :)
      I always appreciate hearing from you!
