I chose this elephant template this week to tangle as a birthday gift for my mother as they have long been one of her favourite animals. I had seen a number of very impressive attempts at it on Ornation Creation, but did my best not to be influenced by them. It’s fair to say that it proved quite a challenge and I made a few false starts, especially with the ears. The tangle that I used is called ‘Cayla’ and is new to me. The plait around the border also proved quite difficult. In the end though, I am pleased with the image I created and think it well represents these majestic and strong animals.
