(Pssst... new here? Welcome to Alphabet Salad! For some background on how and why I got involved in the Blogging from A to Z Challenge, check out this post... and, if you'd like to catch up on my progress to date, all of my challenge posts are tagged with Tangling from A to Z. Glad you stopped by, and hope you'll return!)
Today's tangle session, from the practice to the string to the finished tile, was just AWFUL! I couldn't seem to get the hang of a couple of the tangles, and then putting them all together just... flopped. I half thought I'd redo my Q tile and post something more presentable, but decided in the interest of authenticity to go ahead and show you the icky one. It's a little embarrassing, but realistically, they can't ALL be winners. I'll consider this an exercise in letting go of perfectionism. ;)
(Interestingly enough, I noticed after the fact that I'd forgotten to sign my Q tile before taking the photo. Why am I not surprised?!)
Tangle Practice - Qian-long
Tangle Practice - Quare
Border & String
Tangle Practice - Quib
Just to carry on with the whole A to Z theme, I thought I'd make each day's "string" resemble the appropriate letter for the day. I can't always promise that the finished tiles will look anything like the letters - it all depends on which tangles I'm using and how the drawing evolves. We'll just have to see what happens!
