Arukas : Arukas, Ojo
Occasionally some friends put out a challenge for folks to make a representation of their idea. It is Heather’s turn to choose the challenge this week. This week is the Tangled Thursday – Playing with Arukas Challenge. So Heather says “I have a challenge for you that I’m going to make due next week. Arukas -Â http://archive.constantcontact.com/fs119/1101168872594/archive/1119308467989.html – draw it simply the first time and then work it into a tile any way you desire.” So this is a ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) using Arukas.
Zentangle Enticed Me
Zentangle has become popular the last couple of years and I have been intrigued and just starting put my attention to it. I am able to be more in the flow again – whew! So above is my Arukas Zentangle Tangle ZIA. This – of course – went in a very different direction than expected – super big different direction!!! Thank you to everyone who made comments on my posts these last weeks. That means a lot to me!!
Which Tangle is Which?
This went very very differently than I started with!!Â If you look at the images on the link above to Arukas, under the steps there are 6 variations.Â The bottom right variation (of those 6) is very cool (in my opinion) – and I tried to do it.Â I had chosen black paper not really thinking about the width of the pen point.Â On my colors that show up on black, the smallest point I have is .7 mm. When I more easily did Arukas the other day, I used a .3 mm black pen.Â Big difference!!
And then I just plan got mixed up trying to copy that concept. My first try is in the upper left corner.Â (The next one will be on white paper so watch for it 🙂 ) So I figured I better put in another Arukas which I did on the bottom right.Â It is ok but mine were much better (ya, I judge 🙂 ) with the white paper and smaller tipped pen.Â So something needed to happen to make this look fun and joyful :)Â Then I decided to put the little caterpillars called Ojo dancing around to activate the space.Â Now it passes the muster of my partner, Susan 🙂 There you have it!! 🙂
I am organizing my studio again to be able to work and now only a table has tons of stuff dumped on it – but the rest is organized!! (My studio always gets filled up when there are projects in the house that need a place to dump a bunch of stuff for awhile!! LOL!!) Thank you for stopping by!! I LOVE comments!! ~ Diane Clancy
