diva challenge 198:K.I.S.S.

Keep It Simple, Silly.

The diva hands us the challenge of going back to the beginning, and simplifying.

Zentangle came my way at the beginning of the summer, and the first youtube video demonstration for me was Auraknot. It is a lot easier now that I've had lots of practice...and not just with auraknot, but with pens and paper in generally.

this is my first tangle done on tiepolo paper, the same stuff official Zentangle (R) tiles are made of.

I like the rustic, hand drawn feel of this. Adding Tipple finished it.

one early favorite is Mr E, which I like because it is so striking, and the numerous lines are relaxing. This is an ATC featuring mr E in  a simple string.

My plan is to create a simple tile every day this week as a meditative exercise.

I have loads of images, as I have been following the diva challenges, but not able to post them. And this may be my last post. Depends on if my computer co operates. They found that my mother board is corrupted (?) and the repair is more expensive than a new laptop, but I can use it until it's all used up. This was the first thing i did with it.
