Challenge #172 – Auraknot and Mooka


This is my piece using the DuoTangle Auraknot and Mooka for the Diva’s Weekly Challenge #172….


Auraknot Mooka DuoTangle 61714 001




I had a lot of fun figuring out how I wanted my Auraknot to be – there are so many possibilities!  Mooka has challenged me at times, while at others it has flowed from the tip of my pen… can see both versions of that here.  It’s funny how you can do something and be so happy with it and then right next to it, feel that one isn’t up to pare.  We all tend to be so critical of our own work and part of me taking things more seriously is learning to let. it. go.  Let the art stand.  Let it be and don’t be so much of a perfectionist that I don’t put it out there.  Standing back and looking at my work as a whole and not shredding each little bit up and criticizing it.  How do you handle imperfections in your work?

  1. You have so much wonderful action in your Tile. Beautiful done. I love what you have done with your Mookas. So many variations, and all of them are intriguing. Your completely expanded AuraKnots look right at home in that bed of Mookas. I don’t blame them. Great shading and highlighting. I love mid-tone tiles. Well done, Chris.

  2. Your Auraknots remind me of flowers in a bed of Mooka. I think most of us handle the imperfections that same way. What we have to learn is to not stay in that critical place and stop exploring. Going back to the basics of Zentangle that it is about the process and not the end result.
