This week’s Diva Challenge is to do a duo tangle using AuraKnot and Bunzo. For me, it is truly a challenge. I’ve only done AuraKnot once and haven’t done Bunzo at all. And duo-tangles, ugh. They can be so dull. At least when I do them.
So, to try and liven this up, I thought I’d try to come up with an unusual string. Instead of drawing a string, I used a cap from a 1-gallon jug and traced a few random circles. Here is my “string.”
So, AuraKnot starts by outlining the main shape. Instead of just tracing around the circles, I decided to give them a more pointy shape.
It’s a bit wonky, but that is the effect I’m going for. So far, so good. I really want to play with all of the intersections in the center circles, but first, I need to start weaving the AuraKnot.
Instead of just drawing a line from one petal to the next, I wanted to use the circles. This is where the problem started. I told you I’ve only done it once, so I had an “oops.” Technically, I “went off in an unexpected direction” but I’m not sure it’s truly AuraKnot since I didn’t start out my weaving correctly.
I think it’s better, but think I’m going to try again. What do you think?
