This week’s “It’s A String Thing” challenge celebrates Adele’s husband’s birthday. The challenge was to use String 101, and to incorporate two tangles: Rixty by Maria Thomas (honoring Zentangle co-founder Rick Roberts’ 60th birthday) and LG by Adele Bruno (inspired by her husband, Lou).
My approach with this tile was to distribute the two patterns as evenly as I could across the six major sections created by the string. Another thing that I wanted to do was vary the presentation of the tangles so that each section was distinctive. And the last thing that I did was to add a touch of color.
