This week's Diva challenge is a duotangle or "tango" of two tangle patterns in one tile. The Diva has proposed that we use Auraknot and Bunzo together.
Auraknot hasn't been one of my favorites to do because I think it's a little tricky. I refreshed my memory on how to do it, and created my center design.

Even patterns that seem complex can be broken down into simple steps. I find that doing patterns like this really gets me into a Zen mood. When I repeat the aura shape inside the knot, it's quite relaxing.
I adore Bunzo so I thought I'd play a bit with some color variation. The Auraknot is done in sepia Micron, and Bunzo is in sepia, black, and a brownish color. Here it is:
