Spring break is over for me and the family and while I had fun, I'm glad to be back to the routine. Also back this week, is the Diva's challenge. Laura's youngest son was in the hospital last week but I am so very glad that they are now home. I'm so happy that Artoo is doing better. A speedy recovery for Artoo and some rest for Laura are my wishes for this week.
Auras in Zentangle are a repeated outline around a pattern. While these are often used to great effect and can fill a space nicely, I don't really use them unless a pattern has an aura in the design. At first I thought about taking a pattern that doesn't usually have an aura and adding one on to it. But then I thought that I'd use Opus and Flux, two patterns that often have auras but are patterns that I don't normally use.
I hope that you all have a great week! I wanted to say how very much I enjoyed seeing your interpretations of Huggy Bear a few weeks ago. They were all so incredible! The challenge really showed me how much creativity you all have and also how rigid I can sometimes be in my own vision. Thanks for such a fabulous experience everyone!
