"It's a String Thing" #160

It's Tuesday, your good news day!

Let's get started with this string inspired by the number six (it's a very angular number six) ~

IAST #160 String by Adele Bruno, CZT
Finding that I sometimes take for granted the elegance of certain tangles, I was pleasantly reminded of the beauty of both Fengle and Shattuck.  Students in my last few classes have asked questions about them and gave them high praise.
Let's explore them both this week, spend time getting to know them, and use them with this string.

Now, at times, Fengle begs to be its own string and if you prefer to tangle along using it as your string, by all means, do.

Below are the links for more information and step outs ~

This link will take you to the Zentangle newsletter from March of 2013 where Maria and Rick illustrate Fengle's step out and an introduction to the world of possibilities this tangle holds.
(At the bottom of the newsletter, they announce the CZT Seminars for the fall - I attended the September one - very nostalgic!)

Many of my students consider this a "go to" tangle.  There are countless ways to embellish this tangle.

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.
