Tips for Tangling Tipple and Tortuca

You gotta love alliteration!

This week's "It's a String Thing" challenge uses four official Zentangle® patterns that begin with the letter 'T' :  Tagh, ,Tipple, Tortuca, and Tripoli  .  

They are all listed on Tangle Patterns with illustrations and suggestions, but Tipple and Tortuca do not have step outs posted.  These tangles are pretty self-explanatory, but just in case you need a bit more information before you try them on your own, here are my notes about them...

In this tile, I used Tipple in the negative spaces of the tangle pattern Fengle.

The word tortuca means, among other things, turtle.  It does resemble a turtle shell when completed.

By the way, these pages are from my pattern notebook.  The page is actually a free download from Tangle Patterns.   On the home page in the top pink bar, there is a tab named "Organize Your Patterns".  Linda Farmer has many suggestions there for pattern notebooks and plenty of free downloads.  Check it out sometime!

And now, since you have even more information about these pretty patterns, try your hand at this week's challenge.  Click here for more information and have fun tangling!
