under my skin
One of the great things about a good tangle is that it has room to grow. You can get to know it. You can develop a rapport. It can accompany you to new and unexpected places. A good tangle is much like a good friend. While Mooka and I still have an uneasy alliance, Auraknot excites me and my ease with Auraknot encouraged me to try something different with Mooka. This is the result -
To begin with I wasn't that happy with the colour combination I'd used on this tile - there was something a bit 'off' about it - but she said it looked okay, a bit like bruised skin, and I kind of liked that so stuck with it. Mooka wrapping a dark border and an Auraknot centrepiece. Some stippling with the Micron, and it all comes together looking a lot like a tattoo. Which is apt as the Diva's original post mentioned her Mooka tattoo. And while I'm not likely to get a Zentangle tattoo, I'm sure to use these tangles again.
