Challenge #75 - Cadent

    Wonderful choice, Diva!  I love cadent.  It was one of the first tangles I learned, and proceeded to use it all the time.  I love the "swoopie" feel to it.   It is just plain fun!
     I started out with a big cadent swooping across the tile.  Then decided it should have some support.  What better tangle to support cadent than girders girdy.  Then spilling from all this support are a lot of variations of cadent.  Lots of fun to play with on a hot summer day!

    Of course I am not through playing by a long shot!  So I penciled in "linq" on my next tile and filled it with cadent!  They seemed to just beg to be together.  Before I started drawing the variation in the cadents, I took a second look and thought they looked a lot like the tail of a seahorse.  So I cut a larger (5x7) piece of paper and took cadent for a swim!  It works perfectly and I love the seahorse!  I've never framed any of my tangles, but he may have to find a home in one.
     Now that I have satisfied the cadent-urge, I am going back to my on-going project.  I am doing a tile for each letter of the alphabet.  I have only gotten "A" done, but it is a chance to explore some tangles I don't often use and revisit old ones I love.  Hidden in the tile is a tiny letter A.  I thought I would try to hide the letter in each tile.
   Thank you for dropping by and now I am off to check out the other entries.  By the way, if anyone could tell me - in very simple non computer talk - how to put a slideshow on my blog, I would love it.  I have tried and it doesn't show up.  What am I doing wrong?  Thanks!
