Hi everyone! Welcome to The Tireless Tangler! It’s been a busy week. I’ve been working hard on my weekly video tutorial featuring a pretty lucky Shamrock knot! This lovely, intricate knot is easy to draw and fits nicely on a Zentangle ® Apprentice tile. it would help a lot if you guys would check it out, and like, comment and tag me with your art! So many of you guys tried last week’s knot and that was incredible! Thank you all! 💜
Next up, it’s a String Thing challenge last week. You all know I’ve been completing tiles but I have been falling asleep while writing my post on Saturday night and then feeling bad for not submitting them on time or worse, not submitting them at all! Well, this week I’m biting the bullet and writing Adele Bruno at Tickledtotangle.blogspot.com to apologize and offer my tiles at their usual late time with her usual option to leave them out! Poor Adele!
I wanted to share this week’s string with you before the tiles and tell you I redid this tile 3 times and still felt I was missing something. Finally, I finished with 2 and said done.
Here’s the string this week!
String 283 is by Adele Bruno and is from her blog post “It’s a String Thing 283”
The tangles used this week were
Sh*rock by Diane Lachance, CZT
Bumpadox by Carole Ohl, CZT
Sláinte by Kate McIlreavy
This turned out to be a true challenge for me! Bumpadox (a version of Paradox) and Sláinte are very much square grid type tangles, and Sh*rock is organic. I thought it would be pretty straight forward. Each time I added the Sh*rock it, together with the grids, were just too much. Now that I look back, the answer was “negative space”. Anyway, here are two of my 3 tries. Negative space…something to keep in mind!
Remember, Friday is a new knot video! This week we will be doing a border knot pattern! See you soon!
