It’s that time of week again! Thursday is String Time! in Tangle All Around!
Each week on Thursday I give my tangle group a string to work with. Keep in mind the tile I drew the string on is 3.5″ square in real life. On my desktop screen it looks like it is 7″ square. That is a huge difference. Hahahahah! If you are new to strings – they are typically drawn in pencil and act as dividers. The string splits your drawing area into sections and you tangle – or draw – patterns in each section. You can be strict and adhere to the string as drawn. Or you can switch it up a bit and combine sections.
This is my tangled string art. If you look you can till see the string lines I made in pencil. Not necessary to erase them. Usually they will fade into your tile once you add shading. I elected to fill most areas of the string – all except those two sections I left open. Color in the background is light – my first time using Miya Arts Crayons. Next time I will build up some layers. I used a YouTangle.art Tile from Hahnemühle and drew with technical pens from Zebra Pen.
Have fun with the string – feel free to reproduce it and tangle it. I’d love to see what you do. I believe you can leave a photo in a comment. Someone should try it and see if it works 🙂 And if you are looking for a place to hang out with tangle people – or to learn how to tangle – check us out on Facebook at Tangle All Around.
