Re: Celtic Knots 101 - Spirals

Tess... I can't thank you enough for this wonderful tutorial. I don't get into the Calligraphy forum as much as I would like but thankfully RoseQueen is always in the background picking up on what I miss. Thanks so much Diana.
Diana suggested I made this a sticky and I agree wholeheartedley.
Thank you so much for doing all the hard work Tess. You are going to inspire a lot of people in the future. Much respect from me ... and hugs as well

Re: Celtic Knots 101 - Spirals

Josep! Welcome to wet canvas! The miniature size of your spirals is *really* amazing & impressive! I'm glad you've decided to join in the conversation.

Thanks Chris (cpm).

And thanks again, Chris! (Jakeally)

Re: Celtic Knots 101 - Spirals

Hi! I'm new here and this is my first post *tries to stop knees from knocking together too obviously* but I just HAD to say, this stuff is FANTASTIC!!

I'm a financier by profession (I hope no one throws eggs at me for that; I've just started out so the economy's not my fault!) but I LOVE calligraphy... I wish I could pursue it as a profession! Veering off track again, but yeah, as I was saying, I was making some new designs and looking for something inspirational in the background or on the borders and this is perfect. I had no idea Celtic knots are this (dare I say) easy. The tutorial's fantastic. I still haven't achieved the neatness that's in your work, but I think the observer can now identify the basic shape of the knot (which is a huge improvement going by the rubbish knots I was making before)

Thanks, Tess!

Re: Celtic Knots 101 - Spirals

Welcome to the forum Tess! I've just taken up pen, ink and calligraphy myself. If you look through the calligraphy section you'll find a whole lot of great information. There is also a weekly challenge for everyone to participate in (although I haven't yet because I'm still at the bottom of the chain with my calligraphy skills) to keep you busy and motivated. And the people here are really helpful and friendly!

dunno if I qualify as *expert.* More of a "I feel your pain/been there-done that-got the t-shirt".

Looking forward to seeing your experiments!
