The challenge is quite timely. If you read my blog last week you'd know that I've been struggling with too much information, too many Tangles, too many ideas.
This morning I have the house to myself. The Husband is at work, Moo is also at work, while BoyBoy is still asleep - he is a teenager and he loves his sleep!
For my first tile I started with one of the first strings I learnt - the basic Z - and a couple of my early favourite Tangles - Crescent Moon, Holibaugh and Flux. I then went a stylish by adding Zinger to link the Holibaugh.
My next tile was more random and unplanned. I used favourite Tangles - Knightsbridge, Shattuck, Verdigogh and too much Printemps. Have to remind myself that less is more.
My final tile this morning took me right back to basics by using my Zentangle Starter Kit and the dice in it to select the Tangles. The string also came from the book in this kit. Tangles are: Purk, Scoodle, Bales and Mist.
I think I achieved the Diva's objective this morning. I did focus on the process and kept to the origins of Zentangle. A key indicator of this is that I let two cups of tea grow cold as I was so engrossed in my drawing.
My last image for this morning is inspired by a post by the Yorkshire Tortoise. She posted an image of her work space. Here's mine, complete with half-drunk cold tea. What is missing is the sound track. This morning I listened to Garret Kato then Pete Murray.
Garret was the support act for Pete Murray recently. Both play acoustic guitar. Smooth, chilled out music to help keep out distracting noise and thoughts.
New features of my blog
I've been updating the design and content of my blog creating some Pages. Pages are limited to pets and travel to Lord Howe Island. Later I'll add more travel places, food pages and the Tangle that I've been working on and hope to submit to TanglePatterns soon. I'm also regularly adding content to the pages that I've started.
A quick note about comments this week. I love getting comments. Please keep commenting. However, I moderate all comments before posting them as I prefer to keep control over what appears on my blog.
There's going to be a delay in moderating this week as I'm about to go down the coast with Moo for a couple of days. While there I will be having a break from the internet.
Have a good week.
