Last week we had so much fun tangling Drupe, that I am having a hard time pushing past the urge to issue another monotangle. After all, it is summertime "...and the livin' is easy" as the song says.
"Monotangle" and "duotangle" are both words coined by the originator of weekly tangled challenges, Laura Harms, CZT. In honor of Laura, let's keep it simple again this week and use just two patterns. Let's begin with this string ~

The two tangles we will use this week are ~
Diva Dance and/or Diva Dance Rock n' Roll by Rick Roberts and
Laurel Davis, CZT included this tangle in her IAST #248 tile last week and it gave me a nudge to add it this week. Thank you, Laurel!

This is a fabulous tangle. It flows beautifully from the pen, can be left very simply tangled or embellished in detail.
