This week the challenge celebrates the spirit of gratitude and thanksgiving with a TriTangle of Trio, Huggins and Xyp.
The past 17 months have been a constant exercise of willpower for me to focus on being thankful for the good things in my life, whilst putting up with the distractions of the bad 😛 I am still unwell (it does seem to be endless!) but I do agree that I have a lot to be thankful for.
This is my first time trying out all three tangles, and I found Trio to be the most challenging.
After a failing at all my attempts, I was getting more and more frustrated just trying to follow the original step outs for Trio. Eventually I gave up and decided it couldn’t BE that difficult to pick up. I decided to then deconstruct the pattern myself and reproduce it to the best of my abilities. I ended up starting on the right instead of left and, basically, ‘flipped’ most of the steps. I don’t know if it ‘works’ visually, but it looks much better than all my failed attempts combined.
Once I was confident enough, I used an official tile to create part of my string on an old book page. After tangling, I trimmed it and mounted it onto a postcard blank.
Here we go.. (clicking on the images will take you to Flickr)
And just for fun (because I don’t really feel chatty)… Here are some other recent pieces before I sign off to go look at other entries 🙂
And my favourite… a second take on last week’s UMT Seton, on a postcard blank ^^
