Aura Soul Star and Zlinky

For the last two months I have forgotten about the Zentangle group that meets in Tulsa, so I set a reminder and do not intend to miss it again unless I have scheduling conflicts. They meet once a month on the weekend and once a month on a weekday. I cannot make the weekend gatherings but I can make the weekday ones, usually. ;)

We met this week and Pam, our CZT, led us in tangling Façade. I really liked the tangle and intend to include it in a tile in the near future.

Facade ~ Lifeofjoy.meI did struggle a bit with the shading but I really like the tangle.

This week’s Diva Challenge is to aura your tangles. The Square One: Purely Zentangle focus tangle this week is Zlinky which has auras built in, so that is kind of a cheat but it seemed to go well. I really enjoyed Soul Star from last week and decided to make it more prominent this week and aura it a bit.

I auraed both the beginning orbs and the outer “scoops.” However, I have inconsistent lines when I aura most of the time, so I decided to blacken in one of the auraed bands. Then I decided that I would like it better with another black aura.

Here it is before shading.

DC#363 Shaded ~ Lifeofjoy.meI opted not to include a border or string of any kind this time and just carried the aura to the edge in some places. I like the effect.

Here it is a bit smaller so that it looks a bit more polished. ;)

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you’ll leave a comment, as they are so very encouraging.

Until next time, God bless,

  1. Hi Michelle, Your Facade is great and I really like your Diva’s challenge, too. The wavy Auras around Soul Star interact so pleasingly with the Zlinky. Also, I agree that the big blown-up versions of Zentangle tiles are not always fair to us, as every Little non-alignment gets exaggerated!! Good Job adding the smaller Version. 🙂
