It's true that I have not worked with either of these really cool patterns before. I carefully watched both of Maria Thomas and Rick Roberts videos on these two patterns. Then I proceeded to practice on a few pages, then went to work on the Challenge. The AuraKnot turned out descent but routine, and the poor little Mookas well, good thing these guys were musically inclined, because they sure took second fiddle to the AuraKnots.
Here are the pages I practiced on. I am now a firm fan of both of these two super Patterns, and want to work with them until I get some really interactive Tangles. I sure understand many tanglers struggle with these two guys, they are demanding, but there are a lot of rewards.
The last image is from my 6-year old Grandaughter. She liked the Mookas, and drew faces on them.Then she showed her appreciation to Mookas every where, by making a galactic issued Valentine, one of her favorite forms of communication.
Well there you have it. You can decide if the practice or the Final tangles are best. I'm leaning toward the practice stuff, still. (Of course they would have to be redrawn.)
I appreciate everyone who visits my sad little blog. You're all awesome.
