TanglePatterns String 004

TanglePatterns.com STRINGSHere’s the fourth String for your creative enjoyment.

This one is thanks to tangler Sue Agnew who writes, “Thank you for starting a ‘string’ about strings! It’s something I can contribute to … I don’t make up patterns so haven’t been able to participate in that way. … I like to tangle the string itself and then run patterns behind it, often spanning more than one section with the same pattern.” Sue sent several strings and this is one of her favorites.

Bear in mind that Zentangle strings are guidelines. You can use them exactly as they are or adapt them to suit as your Zentangle grows. Start with the string as it’s shown then, as you go, combine sections if your tangles want to, or divide a section into smaller ones. Go with the flow and enjoy.

The Border is also a suggestion – use it, change it, or ignore it. It’s your art.

Please help our community’s String resource grow by sending me your strings to share. For your convenience, below there’s a link to a template to use if you’d like.

Right-click to save to your computer, then print.

Lightly pencil the string on your tile and you’re good to go tangling. Enjoy!

Reminders: Use any string over and over again with different tangles. There are so many tangles available that your Zentangles will always be different even using the same string. Or use it with only one tangle – a monotangle. Usually each string will have many options. And remember, there’s no right-side-up.

    Thank-you so much for this string.. I haven’t used strings yet just loving to work on a tangle and see what happens.
    I was hurt in an accident and as of yet I have not been able to financially donate to your site but as soon as I get some money I will.
    I look forward to your e-mails and every time they come it is like getting a gift.
    Thank-you so much,
    Marj

  • I’m loving the strings you starting to share. Sometimes I run out of idea of what strings to use and these will become handy in the long run.

    Thanks

  • these are so much fun, linda! thanks for the challenge :)
