I love when someone gives me a string. It's like you get to play in someone else's house: they've done all the cleaning and prep and you just have to show up and play. Not that strings are a chore, of course, but some days that's the first point of entry into the process, and my lists and left brain haven't gotten the full message that they can now take a break, and my critical side starts poking at me. That's why I love using the Zentangle prestrung tiles. I can more easily bypass the pressure of starting something new and go right to the flow.
This week the Diva gave us a string from Linda Farmer's Tanglepatterns.com. If you've not visited, go! It's great. This string is very sectioned, which makes me want to Puf it up. So I did. Here is a photo of the string with the sections dressed in 'pre-puffed' auras:
Here is the finished tile:
In all this playing, I think a tangle may have emerged. I hesitate to say that as there are so many new ones popping up, that surely this has been done. However, if not, I went ahead and named it and provided the step-outs. You can use a straight line (left) or a curvy line (right) "V" shape. Remember when you 'puf', resist the urge to draw a line straight through the point. Move slowly to let the line dance from one point to the next.
Try it without the bars, connecting the "v" sections to each other:
