It is one of my favorite string techniques, and I have several ZIAs here and there using blocks as a sort of string. It always ends up looking VERY cool.
In this ZIA I used bijou tiles for my first level
|1, 2, 3 (the 1 in the middle, on the diagonal)|
|one ATC upright, layered over the other one, perpendicular|
And for the "top" layer...I used a 3.5x3.5 tile...which actually ended up "under" everything else in the finished piece
And this is what I ended up with. Such a fun way to tangle.
|i used bead lines, fescu, verdigoh, mumsy, rixty, cadent, printemps, bublz, starsket, hollibaugh, scruffle, crescent moon, some tipple, and in the center there is a tangle based on a succulent called haworthia viscosa.|
