Hello everyone! Welcome to The Tireless Tangler! There is a whole lot happening so be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss the fun! It’s good to get back in the swing of things! I’ve been really busy behind the scenes here on my WordPress site. I have many plans and I expect there will be growing pains but I am excited about the possibilities in the coming year!
March 17th is St. Patrick’s day and this is the perfect time to share some new Celtic Knot Tutorials. I’ve been hoarding some knot designs and I have some good ones for you this month. Below is a YouTube link for this week’s tutorial.
First though, let’s stop and enjoy this week’s diva challenge! The Diva, Laura Harms, challenges us to use CZT, Holly Atwater’s intriguing Tangle, HaWy. I thoroughly enjoyed exploring this Tangle. It looks high focus but it truly isn’t. It’s all about recognizing the star shape and working from there. I also like how it can look like 3D blocks or something entirely different depending on how you envision it. Thanks Holly for deconstructing this amazing pattern!
Here are 2 tiles that are very different.
This pretty Celtic knot represents sisterhood which is a perfect fit for Women’s History month. Be sure to subscribe to my channel or check back next Friday for a wonderful lucky Shamrock knot with hearts woven into the leaves!
We will have to wait on the Diva’s challenge. Laura Harms has not released a challenge this week, so instead, I wanted to share my newest video tutorial on Celtic Knots. This week’s video focuses on a single simple knot called Triquetra. This knot is one of the oldest, being seen in artwork as old as 500 BC.
Triquetra means 3 corners. This knot has a pagan mythology as well as a Christian one. It is commonly called the trinity knot or love knot and is a repeating motif in illuminated manuscripts, mosaics, metalwork and jewelry designs from the time of the Roman Empire.
Get to know Triquetra!
Just in time for St Patrick’s Day, a Celtic knot tutorial for your drawing enjoyment! So, Enjoy!
