Blogging from A to Z Challenge - Z is for...

I'm tangling from A to Z - Z is for...
...Zen Bud

(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

Well, this is it... the very last post of the challenge. Z is for... zenith! It's been a fantastic experience in so many ways - learning new designs, practicing my art, connecting with fellow bloggers, redesigning my tangle gallery, and, most recently, being inspired to follow up on my dream of becoming a Certified Zentangle Teacher™ (CZT™). I'm so very glad I decided to participate!

If you're interested in having a little piece of my art for yourself, please click on the GoFundMe button above for more information. You can take your pick from any of the finished pieces I created as part of the Tangling from A to Z project, or any of the other pieces marked as available in my tangle gallery, or even a brand-new just-for you yet-to-be-created original!

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!

A to Z Tangle Sampler

Early on in April I decided to create something that would bring all of the tangle patterns I learned throughout the month together into one piece of art. At first it was going to be something random, kind of like a large-scale tile, but I decided instead to highlight each individual pattern in a quilt-style "sampler" of sorts. I'm quite pleased with how it turned out, and think it's a great tribute to all I learned during my Tangling from A to Z experience.

Which patterns are your favourites?

Thanks so much for following along throughout the month - and I hope you'll visit Alphabet Salad again for further adventures in blogging (and maybe even some more tangling goodness)! :)
