I love this new official zentangle - Auraknot. The major problem is: it is addicting! I find myself wanting to try new tangleations and playing with it connecting to other tangles. What fun! I found out about the tangle over the weekend and after viewing the video how-to, grabbed my calendar to practice. I marked off Monday on the calendar so I would still have room to do the Diva's Monday challenge. So I just drew lots of shapes and tried auraknot on a variety of spaces - no thought or planning. It is fortunately very forgiving as I have lots of mistakes, but hey, it was my first go at it. What a surprise when on Monday the challenge was - you guessed it - use auraknot! I played in the calendar some more and then did a few tiles to "count" as official. But rest assured, this tangle is going to be one of my go-to favorites!
This was the first tile I did to share. I really wanted it just to take center stage.
I looked through my notebook and found the tangle "exinside" by Sandra Strait. I thought it might work with auraknot. Add a little allium and here you have it. I called it "Lost" because as you might guess, I kept getting lost with my lines! Fun, but definitely an exercise in concentration.
Last, here is my calendar page for the fourth of July. That was a lot of fun to play with! Have a great week and thank you for stopping by and any comments you might leave.
