When I first started tangling I didn't quite understand the tangle pattern Striping. The diagram with the step outs was clear enough but I couldn't quite understand how to do it myself. It's one of those patterns that - for me anyway - I needed someone to walk me through it. Now it's one of my favorite tangles. I love adding the highlights and the shading. These finished tiles make me happy! Thanks Adele for suggesting we do string 55 as a monotangle with Striping.

This was done on a blue/green handcolored tile with a blue Micron pen. Then colored pencils added the shading.


  1. Beautiful tile. The shading and highlights are stunning :)

  2. Love it! It reminds me of...something... ;) The blue makes this one really special.

  3. Beautiful, Sue. You've got the technique down pat. This is how I wish mine would look. I'll just have to keep working at it.

  4. You did an excellent job on this challenge. Love the blue.

  5. I'm new to Zentangle and new to your site and I'm blown away!!! I have to do more reading that's for sure. Thanks for sharing all you do!

  6. I love this tangle as well and you did a beautiful job. I'm having trouble getting it right but will try tangle 55 as you suggested.

    Thank you so much for posting this.
