"It's a String Thing" #207

It's Tuesday, your good news day!

This week we will be focusing on just one tangle - Cross-Ur-Heart a new one by IAST contributor Jenna Black. (Link to her website)

Jenna first joined our community for IAST #134.  When she sent in her tile for the following challenge, she described it as "a mishmosh of my own devising."

That description stayed with me as I think it describes tangles and tiles as we develop our own style.

So for this challenge, we will create a monotagle with Jenna's beautiful Cross-Ur-Heart.
Even if hearts aren't your favorite shape, I am confident that you will enjoy learning this tangle.
The step outs are simple, the pattern unfolds beautifully, and the details provide a very rhythmic, relaxing time tangling.

Here is a suggestion for a string:

Since this is a monotangle and strings are merely suggestions, feel free to take creative license (as always) and tangle away as your pen leads.

The possibilities are limitless - layer multiple Cross-Ur-Hearts, add any number of embellishments - perfs, sparkle, shading, aura, etc.

Here are the (Not so) Official Guidelines: 
* Challenges are posted on Tuesdays.
* Submit a photo of your tile saved as jpg or scan your tile (300 dpi or higher) and save as a jpg
*Email your jpg file as an attachment to - brunoadelem@gmail.com
