"It's a String Thing" #67

It's Tuesday, your good news day!

Looking to the week ahead and the Thanksgiving holiday here in the United States, it is a good time to pause and think about the blessings in our lives.

With that in mind, we begin this week's "It's a String Thing" with TanglePatterns String 070 by Didier Gervy.

Copyrighted image used with permission,
Our finished tiles will be more Zentangle® Inspired Art (ZIA) than our usual traditional tiles because we will add words and/or phrases to the string.

Take a few minutes to close your eyes and think of what/who you are grateful for in your life.  What are the first three that come to mind?   Write them in each of the bands of the string's triangle.  Be as fancy or as simple as you please with your writing.

As for patterns, we will use Crescent Moon, the wonderful tangle by Maria Thomas and Rick Roberts and in honor of Didier, we will use his lovely tangle Cornerz.

For Crescent Moon ~
Sandy Bartholomew published a pattern step out here on her blog.
My post that highlights variations on the pattern can be found here on my blog.

Cornerz can be found here on TanglePatterns, Linda Farmer's wonderful resource site.

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