(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!)
Whenever I sit down to learn a new, complicated-looking tangle, my initial response is almost always a rather daunted, “I can’t do THAT!” But the Zentangle® tagline – Anything is possible… one stroke at a time – really is true. Each tangle is broken down and presented step by step, helping you build an intricate design from the ground up. So even if you don’t believe you’re an artistic person (which several of you have said in your comments!), I encourage you to step out of your comfort zone and give tangling a try. I believe you just might surprise yourself.
Border & String
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!
