"It's a String Thing" #22

It's the first Tuesday of the new year - time to tangle!

This week's challenge begins with String 022 created by Margaret Bremner as featured on Linda Farmer's Tangle Patterns.

I am in awe of Margaret's work and her blog - The Enthusiastic Artist. - and very excited to begin the new year with one of her strings.

Since Margaret's name is chock full of 'R's' and the vowels 'A' and 'E', in her honor we will use tangle patterns that begin with the letters 'RA' and 'RE'.    They include:

Ragz by CZT Christina Vandervlist
Rain - an official Zentangle® pattern
Raindotty by CZT Jane Monk
Reticulated by Livia Chua
Retro by Elena Hadzijaneva

Be sure to read about the patterns (found here on Tangle Patterns) - especially the example that Linda Farmer posted about Rain and how it can be used as a filler.  It will expand the possibilities for using the other border-type tangles as well.

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

This exercise is for beginner and seasoned tanglers alike. Use it as an excuse to keep up with your art work, take time for yourself, learn new patterns, share your talent...

Here are the (Not so) Official Guidelines:  
* Challenges are posted on Tuesdays.
*Use the string posted for the week and patterns that begin
      with the letter(s) indicated
*Work must be completed on Zentangle tiles or on your 3.5" x 3.5" paper
* Submit a photo of your tile saved as jpg or
      scan your tile (300 dpi) and save as a jpg
*Email your jpg file as an attachment to - brunoadelem@gmail.com
*Entries are to be submitted by Saturday evenings.

Send in your photos - you will encourage and inspire fellow Zentangle enthusiasts all over the world.
PLEASE NOTE: I will add a link to your blog or web site with your tile photo if you wish.

I look forward to your emails.
