TanglePatterns String 211

TanglePatterns.com STRINGSThis week’s String is shared by tangler Mary Helmers for your creative enjoyment. This is Mary’s first string in our large and growing collection.

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.
