I spent an afternoon with this interesting pattern and here are some of my results ~
The first tile is a monotangle that I completed following Bunny's step out.
This is what it looked like with half of the shading completed to illustrate the dramatic difference it makes ~
And here is it totally shaded ~
Next, I experimented with the step out. What if I tangled Inaura in reverse? I wondered if the finished look of the pattern would be noticeably different if I began with the inner small shapes and aura-ed outward.
I began with the inner small shape of a circle...
Then I began to fill in the background as I did for the first monotangle pictured above.
Once I was satisfied with the amount of Inaura in the space, I shaded it ~
I am still amazed at what shading adds to Inaura!
The order of the step out did not seem to make a marked difference in the finished look of the tangle.
Still enamored, I thought I'd try another monotangle adding sparkle to each of the larger shapes ~
I do like what that little bit of sparkle adds.
Lastly, for a grand finale, I began with the larger shapes but this time I tangled them each in detail ~
Then I added the smaller shapes in the background as usual and once completed and shaded this is how it turned out ~
So there are the fruits of my afternoon spent with Inaura. I must admit it was difficult to stop. Before I finished one tile another idea begged to be expressed - but the laundry was calling and dinner needed made :)
I heartily recommend spending a block of time with a tangle you like. Explore what it can do and see where it leads you. It is time well spent.
