Hi and welcome back to the Chrissie Murphy Designs Blog. This week’s Magnified Fragment is C15. So without further ado, let’s get into it, have a look at the enhancer we’ll be using. I’ve also included links to some resources you might find helpful for this week.
This Week’s Magnified Fragment is C15
Here’s a quick sketch of what the fragment looks like as a reference for you.
This week’s Magnified Fragment Enhancer is to use Tethered Aura’s
The Zentangle Terminology page of the TanglePatterns.com website describes Tethered Aura’s as:
This is another very simple enhancer, it’s easy to discount, but I’d encourage you to really explore it this week. The different ways it’s able to be used can really impact the appearance of a tile.
So we’ll use aura’s again, but this time we will tether them to a component of our fragment.
Some resources to help you with this week’s Magnified Fragment
A great example of Tethered Aura’s was featured in Zentangle® Project Pack #15, the Day 4 video. I’d encourage you to have a look at it.
Here are some more great examples to inspire you.
This beautiful tile by Shie Naritomi has some small areas where tethered aura’s are used.
And this tile featuring framed letters by Aida Rico, CZT also has some tethered aura’s in the spacing in between and under letters. Doesn’t it look beautiful.
This is a very simple enhancer. so I know you get the idea. Tether your aura’s as you enhance your fragments this week.
If you have any ideas for an enhancer in Part 2 of the Project, leave me a comment and we’ll feature them in upcoming fragments.
Now is the perfect time to join us, the more the merrier. Just tag your tile with #MagnifiedFragments and I’ll see it, share it and add it to our gallery.
