What a gorgeous couple! Mooka and Auraknot. Laura, on I am the Diva, says she has a love/hate relationship with Mooka. How could she? Mooka is delightful, flowing, smooth and elegant. Auraknot on the other hand leaves me looking like a small child - hunched over, tongue out, far too close to the page....and it never, ever looks as I want it to look.
So, I tried to do something a little different. I have used a Renaissance tile and drew my Auraknot in a sepia tone, (so you can't see it too well....) with a black Mooka behind it. I have gone to town on shading this week - again, shading can hide a multitude of little errors! Then I've highlighted with abandon with my fine white pen. It's not perfect but I quite like it.
I've already had a peek at some of the other entries to this week's challenge and there are some amazing contributions. I was quite bowled over by Debra Castaldi's gorgeous tile - wish I could do Auraknot with this amount of confidence.
Enjoy checking out all the others.
