Diva Challenge #102/ Zendala Dare #40

Laura's Weekly Diva Challenge this week is a duo-tangle featuring patterns Auraknot and Bunzo. I had forgotten how much I enjoyed drawing Auraknot. I haven't used it since it first came out and so many other great patterns keep cropping up lately...it's easy to lose track of those favorites. Bunzo is another super cool pattern and I think I got a better handle on it this time around than the last time I tried to tackle it...

Put this in my One Zentangle a Day sketchbook for easy reference...Feeling a little Valentine-y...wasn't sure if I'd like the red or not but it gives another dimension now that it's done...
This side shot made me realize I hadn't shaded the center Bunzo...oops!! Haha!

And moving on to Erin's Zendala Dare 40, finished this up this afternoon-been on a Tripoli kick lately...a little Shattuck and an Auraknotty star for the middle...viola! Have to say I'm rather happy with it!

  7. Like the combination of the heart and triangle in the Auraknot. Also the way it is nestled in the Bunzo, just cushioning it. That is some awesome Tripoli on the Zendala. That is a tangle that can get lost in whether are making it or looking at it.
