"It's a String Thing" #145

It's Tuesday, your good news day!

Since the past few weeks have been a bit of a whirlwind here at my house - and I'm sure I'm not alone in saying that - let's take a bit of a deep breath this week.

Let's learn CZT Margaret Bremner's new tangle Skye, pair it with a simple string and one classic pattern.  Sound like fun?

Margaret's Skye was featured last Saturday on her blog, "The Enthusiastic Artist" - click here to view.  She deconstructed a Celtic inspired border and the result is fascinating.   Margaret also posted four tiles of her own that feature Skye - lots of inspiration for the rest of us!

We begin with this string ~

Feel free to add more lines to divide the string into smaller sections if you want, or change the direction to suit your mood.

Along with Skye we will use

Antidots by Anita Roby-Lavery.
This loopy tangle is relaxing to draw and makes for a great feature or filler.

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.

The SKYE is the limit!
