My friend Chris is a lover of all things Post-It-Note so I am always on the lookout for new ones that she doesn't have yet. When I saw these, however, I thought they would be perfect for me. I'm a big list maker. I find that tasks become overwhelming if I leave them in my head, but once I get them out on a list they don't seem quite so daunting. Or so I thought.
Now I know that this week does not look very ambitious but you have to take a few things into account. 1) I work 12 hour shifts so the days marked work are pretty much shot. 2) That EVOC thing on Saturday is an 8 hour Emergency Vehicles Operation Course that I have to take every 2 years so I can drive the ambulance (even though my partner Jenn never lets me drive), and no it is not nearly as exciting as it sounds. 3) Even though Jenn's bridal shower on Sunday will probably only take about 2 hours, I am making my deadly delicious champagne punch so the rest of that day is pretty much gone as well. 4) This is just the stuff that I remembered I have to do. More will creep up throughout the week. So why am I telling you this? I'm not looking for a pity party, because this is a totally doable week, but with a week like this things can get lost in the shuffle. So when I got up this morning, even though I have 12 things on my to do list today, I decided it was important to set aside a little time for me. What would I do with that time? Well Zentangle of course.
This weeks Diva Challenge is to explore auras. An aura, in Zentangle terms, is basically an outline around an existing tangle. It is a tangle enhancer. Some other tangle enhancers are sparkles, perfs, and rounding. Any Certified Zentangle Teacher can show you these techniques. So while exploring the world of auras, this is what I came up with.
|Tangles: Pystyl, Quipple, Jetties|
I wanted to explore some new options with my auras so I used my new tangle Pystyl because I think it looks best with an aura. I exaggerated this one more than I normally do. Then I added Quipple because it normally has an aura, and finished off with Jetties which I have never seen done with an aura. My overall conclusion: I like auras. Thanks again Laura for another great challenge.
