"It's a String Thing" #243

It's Tuesday, your good news day!

Thank you everyone for spreading all of the tangled Happy Mother's Day goodness for IAST #242.  I have just returned from a weekend of celebrations, so the the emails and tiles will be just a bit late...I hope to have them ready tomorrow.
Until then, let's keep on track with our challenges and begin with this string ~

IAST #243 String by Adele Bruno, CZT

If it looks familiar, perhaps you have read CZT Linda Farmer's May 11, 2018, TanglePatterns post about zenbuttons by CZT Marguerite Samama (The Netherlands).  Click here to view.

Marguerite's tutorial is clearly written and fully illustrated.  She gives step-by-step instructions and suggestions for ways to create beautiful zenbuttons.  Of particular interest is the finished example before and after shading and highlighting. 

Won't it be exciting to create our own zenbuttons using Marguerite's tutorial?
Instead of our usual list of tangles, we will use fragments to fill our zenbuttons.  Even if you don't own a copy of The Zentangle® Primer Vol. 1, there are plenty of possibilities already included.

Feel free to use any color of tile and pen(s) - it will be delightful to see the variations between our tiles.

Simply pencil in the string and tangle away.
