Blogging from A to Z Challenge – V is for…

I’m tangling from A to Z – V is for…

(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!)


Tangle Practice

It’s hard to believe that after today, I have only four more “Tangling from A to Z” posts left to go. Just four! This month is flying by far faster than I’d have ever imagined it would way back in March when I was choosing which tangle patterns I wanted to learn. At the time I felt a little overwhelmed by the whole thing, but it’s amazing how quickly and naturally I fell into the rhythm of daily tangle sessions (sometimes even more than one a day)! Tangling is quite addictive (as you might have guessed!), and it will be rather bittersweet when I reach the end of my alphabet posts.

Yet even when the challenge is over, the tangling will go on. In case you missed it, I am “tangling to be a CZT (Certified Zentangle Teacher)” so that I can take my love of this wonderful art form to the next level and actually teach others to do it. (Because despite what you might believe about yourself, you ARE creative and you CAN do it, and I want to prove it to you!) If you’re interested in learning more about my goal you can visit this link (or click on the badge below) to read my story and decide if you’d like to “take a little piece of my art” for yourself and get me a little closer to my dream.

Thank you for your support – it means the world!

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!
