"It's a String Thing" #143

It is Tuesday, your good news day!

It is also means we are just a few days away from the opening reception of the Tickled To Tangle Art Show - the first of its kind at the Casselberry Art House.

The Art House is the loveliest of spaces and the Zentangle® and ZIA exhibit is ready for visitors. I can hardly believe it!

Since many of you are just too far away to drop by, this week's challenge will provide a bit of virtual participation.

We begin with a string inspired by the front door - just a glimpse of the left side - of the Art House  (as pictured on my blog header) ~

 With mosaics and texture in mind, I chose these tangles ~

Swarm was published in their newsletter in 2009.  It is interesting to note as you will read, that they hosted a monthly challenge back then.
and Tipple  

Over the weekend, I will post some pictures of the reception and of the show.  In the meantime, tangle your own entrance way to the show!  It will be a treat to see the results on Monday.

Simply pencil the string line onto your tile and tangle away! Keep in mind that string lines are suggestions and let the patterns lead the way.
