"It's a String Thing" #147

It's Tuesday, your good news day!

It is also the last day of the merry month of May.  Let's give it a fond farewell by tangling with flower-like patterns this week.

We begin with this string ~

IAST #147 String by Adele Bruno, CZT

It's a bit of a departure from our usual strings, but it should work well with these tangles:

Pixioze by Margaret Bremner, CZT
This is our second time using Margaret's Pixioze in a challenge.

Blooming Butter by Michele Beauchamp, CZT (also on TanglePatterns)
I have often admired this pattern and am happy to have a designated time for all of us to learn it.

Zinger by Maria Thomas, Zentangle ® co-founder
This is a wonderful tangle to add to any tile.

Feel free to adapt the string to your liking...

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.
