TanglePatterns String 155

TanglePatterns.com STRINGSThis week’s String is shared by tangler Cat Trask for your creative enjoyment. String 131 was Cat’s previous contribution to our community’s resource.

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.

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.

Today’s pretty grid-based tangle JJ is from Ramsey, New Jersey CZT Joy Taylor and it’s her first on the site.

Ramsey “is a suburb of New York City, located 26 miles (42 km) northwest of Midtown Manhattan” according to Wikipedia. Wow, so close to The Big Apple and everything it has to offer … I’m salivating …

Joy’s tangle pattern is a little like CZT Nancy Pinke’s Facets and a little like Magda Wellens’s Graancirkel.
