This week, the lovely Laura at I am the Diva gave us the challenge of producing a zentangle-inspired tile or ZIA using the new official tangle Auraknot. I have to admit I was petrified at the thought of this challenge! I've tried drawing this tangle several times this week without success, and to tell the truth I almost gave up. Then earlier today I read a comment written by another challengee, who said we are often reluctant to do something because we are scared of failing. How true that is - it certainly is true of me, anyway!
So, I decided to be brave and I've tried again. I used watercolours, because I love them. I decided to draw a fantasy sea-themed ZIA - because I love the sea. And I used some of my favourite tangles including Sanibelle and the little pebbles (oops I don't know what that tangle is called but I'm new to this so please forgive me!) The Auraknot tangle became almost secondary, but that meant I stopped worrying about it, and I think I'm fairly happy with the result. As far as Auraknot is concerned my fish got rather "mixed up" but my starfish and its babies turned out okay I think. Let me know what you think - good or bad because that's how we learn.
