"It's a String Thing" #188

It's Tuesday, your good news day!

There is good news indeed this week because Monday marks the beginning of Spring -
a bit ironic because much of the Northeastern United States is covered in snow today.

Snow or no snow, Spring is guaranteed to arrive on March 20th.  To celebrate let's tangle a bit of Spring - whether the weather in your part of the world is co-operating or not...

We begin with this string ~

Next, we will use three organic tangles:

This lovely tangle just may take up all your time - and your entire tile - once you begin drawing it.  It can be embellished countless ways.

These tangles are very similar and you may even find a combination of both can make for interesting variations...

Use as many, or few, of the tangles as you wish.

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.

Here are the (Not so) Official Guidelines: 
* Challenges are posted on Tuesdays.
*Use the string posted for the week and some or all of the suggested patterns
