Challenge # 78-Auraknot

This week, the Diva's challenge is a new one from Maria and Rick, the original "Zentanglers".  If you click on the link, you will be taken to their blog with a very cool video of how to draw "Auraknot".  Also you will see much info about zentangling and can sign up for their newsletter.

This week, I kind of "stole" an idea from Bright Owl who also has a Dare challenge with predrawn zendalas.  The idea I "borrowed" was to draw a zentangle design/challenge in a series of more than one tile.  I loved what she had done so thought I would try it.

Challenge # 78 - Auraknot

And as a result of my last blog, I think I have found an incentive challenge for getting something done...it is only a monthly post...I like that better than daily/weekly.. ..something I think I can manage more easily!!


  1. Three ambitiously gorgeous tiles. You did not make this one easy for yourself but they look like the lines flow with ease. Does that make sense? I really love them.

  2. Fantastic! I love this design too Jay, and I really like your interpretation of it.

  3. You did a great job with this 'borrowed' zia. Love it.

  4. borrowed can be good. like yours lots.

  5. I get a kick out of your little extras,Jay. Like the turned up corner and the "crack" coming in from the other corner on the second design. I love the first one with the stripes, too.

  6. You have mastered this tangle! Love all of them and the layout!
