Auraknot play



'Auraknot' is the newest tangle pattern put out by Zentangle.com. Directions are in the July 7th newsletter. I've been having so much fun with this tangle. I've drawn it on the newspaper, on napkins, and the back of envelopes. So now that I'm more comfortable with it I tried a couple of tiles. 

The first tile is done on colored cardstock. I used two different colored Micron pens so you can clearly see how there are two shapes that weave together. The second tile isn't quite finished - I 'm not sure yet what I want to add to it. But I wanted to show you how I changed the lines to become more like lace. Auraknot didn't seem at first like it would be good for tangleations but I knew there had to be something different I could do with it!

  2. Thank you! I couldn't master the three pointed star and somehow when I looked at yours, scratched it out on a tablet...it worked! Your first tile is quite dimensional with the two colors and the second on is cute (I see it in a baby's nursery).

  8. I'm having enough trouble with the straight lines, I can't believe you did the Auraknot with scallops! Too cool!

  9. Both are gorgeous. The first one, with two colors, truly highlights how the double three pointed knot flows together. I'm going to have to try to duplicate that. The second one is just darling. But somehow, I think that would be harder to keep straight.
