This week on "That's New to Me" challenge#10, the random letter to use was 'A'. The only tangles starting with 'A' I had used till now were Arcflower and Auraknot. So I knew I had wide range of options. Choosing which tangles to use took me one whole day using Tanglepatterns.com ( when I see something interesting I happen to wander off from what I was initially there for!!). Finally I chose Arukas and Axlexa.
Arukas by Molly Hollibaugh is an Zentangle®-original tangle. I never tried it since the tangle looked so complicated. But when I tried out the steps couple of times in my workbook, I found that all that was needed was total concentration. I sometimes tangle when watching TV, definitely not to be done when using Arukas :)
Axlexa by Henrike Bratz is a really fun and easy tangle. It is quite handy to fill up the tile too.. Was wondering why I hadn't tried this tangle before..
Since my treatments have started again, I had to visit the hospital today. I had to wait for 2 hours. so guess what? I manged to complete 2 tiles.

When I was done with my first one, I began thinking how it would look if the spokes from the initial circle for Arukas were spiral rather than straight lines. I like the spiral look though one of spokes dint come out nicely.

Hope you like my work.
