If you will recall, I was experimenting with using Membranart as a background behind other tangles, here. I made a fairly complex version of it to provide some tension with the foreground. Amanda liked the idea of that, so she decided to experiment, also. She chose a simple tangle, Hollibaugh for the foreground so that she could concentrate on the Membranart itself. This was a new tangle for her to tackle, and I think she did a great job here!

Inside. She had passed through, to the other side of the barrier, beyond the stars. She could still see it in the distance. Now, she was confronted with the inner realms. She could see the stations, clustered together, ahead. Perhaps the structures connecting them also lead to others. I decided to try my hand at creating a “regular” Zentangle, but using a black tile and white ink. This went through various stages of working and not working and then back to working again!

Beyond. Now that she had decided, it was time to pilot beyond the local stars. She could see that something was there. Something mysterious. Something that was waiting to be explored. This Zentangle started out as a challenge from another artist who said “You haven’t don’t very many tiles with Auraknot.” Then she challenged me to do one so she could see my variations and how I shaded them.
