Just this week, the good people at Zentangle® released the step out in their newsletter. YAY! Now the whole tangling world can play with this ingenious tangle.
One of our exercises at zenAgain was to follow along as Molly walked us through Ratoon's basic steps. From there, we embellished it with our own touches.
This is how my zendala turned out ~

Let's try this same exercise together this week. On your choice of tile, tangle a basic Ratoon and then embellish it to your heart's delight. Feel free to keep it very simple or add more Ratoon and tangles of your choice.
Our string then, will be the simple circle that Ratoon begins with. Place it anywhere on your tile and begin.
The Ratoon step out by Maria Thomas can be found here in the latest Zentangle newsletter.
I will post a few Tips for Tangling Ratoon later this week.
Feel free to use any size and color of tile.
