TanglePatterns String 052

TanglePatterns.com STRINGSThis week’s String is shared by tangler Barbara Finwall for your creative enjoyment. Barbara has previously contributed strings 012, 023, 030, and 038 to our “string bank”.

Bear in mind that Zentangle® strings are guidelines. You can use a string exactly as it is or adapt it 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.

Please help our community’s String resource grow by sending me yours to share. Remember to keep them simple, Zentangle strings are not elaborate or complicated. For your convenience, below there’s a link to a template to use if you’d like.

If you’d like to share your completed tiles for other to see, add them to the TanglePatterns String group on flickr (see the link below).

TanglePatterns String 052

Right click and SAVE to your computer; then print.

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

Reminders:

  • Important: Strings are always drawn freehand in pencil so they magically disappear into your completed Zentangle.
  • 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.
  • The Border (if one is given) is also a suggestion – use it, change it, or ignore it. It’s your art.
  • And remember, in Zentangle there’s no right-side-up!
