Dear Adele and tangler friends,
Although I couldn't become friends with Drawings, O therefore was quite fun to play with.
Not to unhappy with the end result I decided to send this Zentangle.
Greetings from The Netherlands in deep Autumn colors,
It was very nice to tangle.
Happy greetings from Germany, NRW
I really enjoyed getting to learn and play with “O”. Thanks for another great challenge!
Blessings on the days where the worlds come close to offer wisdom from the ancestors.
This week marked the 5th anniversary of my Dad crossing over after a long battle with cancer. His mantra was to never give up, and that he did until he gave me the greatest gift in letting go.
This time of year always brings many visitors in dreams and thoughts...a smile here, the faint scent of a familiar perfume, spoonerisms when you least expect it! I chose to walk a different path than that which I grew up in. There isn’t a name for it, but I embrace it and am so grateful that the fork in the road brought me to where I am today.
Thank you for the opportunity to honor the family and friends on this tile. I decided that a tangleation of Drawings was the perfect way to showcase them.
Blessings again on this time of year.
Thank you for another fun challenge, I really love your O tangle.
Here's my tile for this week's challenge. For some reason I'm finding tangling quite difficult at the moment. Whenever I put my pen to the paper I hate the result. I either make lots of mistakes or I just don't find the finished design aesthetically pleasing. But I've been trying to muddle on through. With this tile I found Drawings really hard to get right. The top version looks a mess, but the other two parts I'm happier with. O is a delight to draw because it's so simple but effective. So this tile for me is a real mixed bag. I wanted to submit it though, even though the other tiles you get every week are so much more beautiful.
the patterns of this week's challenge were not so easy to combine with the string. I drew several attempts until I was satisfied with the result. On my blog you find a second tile under the link . I am always excited how differently a topic is handled by different people.Thank you for your commitment and the time you invest to put together all the submissions.
Best wishes from Germany
Thanks for giving the opportunity to be a part of this challenge.
I am a selftought tangler since I discovered Zentangle in November 2016. I had never drawn before, but I am addicted since the day I saw the video Auraknot.
I love challenges with a given string and patterns. This week two new patterns to me, but I like them both. It is true, your O is really zen!
I hope you like the result.
Happy Halloween. Thanks for another great challenge and inspiration to create something, here is what I came up with
Attached is my Tile for ‘It’s A String Thing #218”challenge.
Many Thanks, Adele, for a great challenge, I enjoyed the Tangles.

I’m sending my tile before and after coloring. I was totally unhappy with my first version - so dull and sad. Absolutely not the way I’m feeling… I tried to add color to drawings. Now it looks much more to what I liked to express (although I’m still a bit disappointed - don’t know why). This was really a challenge for me.
Here's my #218. I can't decide if I love or hate this! Sometimes I think I should have done Drawings differently, sometimes I'm pleased with it. I used paper with a background that I had watercolored awhile ago, pen, and colored pencils.
Thanks for your latest challenge 218, Adele. I love your tangle pattern O and would have happily done a monotangle with it this week but ended up adding Drawings to my tile, too. Thanks for sharing your Halloween tangled houses—they are adorable!
...this was really a challenge for me. I never tangled Drawings. I tried again and again in different variations, but I am not really contented. It will be not better and so I send you this result. Your O is well, isn´t it? I like it and will use it every once in a while.
Here is my tile for IAST 218. I still have a little trouble with 'Drawings' and need a bit more practice with it, but I appreciated the challenge. And I always enjoy' O'!
Thanks for another fun challenge! I love your O tangle and will be using it again.

Another busy week and this challenge kept me on my toes. I added another pattern and didn't quite stay with in the string
Hope you are well. I used a little color pencils for highlights for a little spice.
Have a great week!
Hi Adele! It's all finally Autumn here in Oklahoma! Thank goodness! I did my entry this week on black. Yes I should have stayed with white. But i lost myself in whimsy, got out my Sakura stardust gel pens. These are special glitter pens. Instead of adding glitter to the ink like most glitter pens, Sakura uses a super fine ground glass. When you talked about halos I think I got distracted! Here is my tile 2 ways, one to see lines and one for glitter because at heart I'm still a little girl who wants to make things pretty!
Fun but a bit of a challenge! My Drawings and O looked a little lonely, and the Floo (a current favorite) flew in. I'm interested in seeing what everyone came up with. Thanks, Adele!
my dear friend Ute Andresen spent the weekend with me. We’ve been doing a lot of tangling. Together we tangled our tiles for your #218 and enjoyed it al lot. Here come our two tiles.
Hi Miss Adele! While my submission is late, I had to try and get it in you because of its significance for me.
A few weeks ago, I lost my little sister to gun violence, and I didn't create any art for a while. I started back drawing recently, and decided to join this challenge. While I was drawing it today, I was listening to the news report about the mass killing in Texas, and I knew right away that I wanted to dedicate this one to the people who lost their lives. I'm calling it "Steal-Life".
Tile 218 happened at speed, but both these tangles, Drawings by Maria Roberts and O by yourself are amazing patterns to use and I just loved how beautifully they work together. Magical.
So, I drew the string, turned the tile 1/4 to the right ... and then the string was abandoned.
I gave a star shape variation to your O tangle (such a simple/elegant, little black dress of a tangle!) and deepened the shading at the centers between the points. Drawing just begs for an influx of Flux!
Cheers and thanks for a prompt that offered a total take-me-away moment.
