It´s a String Thing #33

This week Adele´s challenge is to use the spring-like String 034 created by Jadie Wright and a choice of the following four tangle patterns:
 
Japan Diamond – Laura Liu, CZT  
Diva Dance - a Zentangle® pattern 
W2 - a Zentangle® pattern  
Tagh- a Zentangle® pattern
 
Your can find these tangles and the String 034 on http://tanglepatterns.com/. For more information please see here on Adele´s blog. Moreover Adele will show all entries of the past week on her blog every Monday.

For me it was a hard challenge this week. The four tangles are very different and the string is not my favorite. I couldn´t find a beginning. A few days later I had an idea but I missed the certain flow and "Zen-factor" during tangling. Therefore I´m not quite happy with the result. So I coloured my tile with watercolours for a spring-like look.
But I´m glad of learning the tangle Japan Diamond. I like it very much. I used a variation for my tile.
