TanglePatterns String 164

TanglePatterns.com STRINGSThis week’s String is shared by Canadian CZT Bunny Wright for your creative enjoyment. Bunny has shared several tangles as well as several strings and you can locate them all by using her last name in the Search TanglePatterns.com box at the top right of any page.

Bear in mind that Zentangle® strings are guidelines, and there is no right side up. Strings are always drawn freehand in pencil so they magically disappear into your completed Zentangle.
