This weeks Challenge is embracing the word challenge for me.  I thought I had dodged this bullet once as this challenge was brought up in March last year and I had yet to discover Zentangle.  It's back!
So this weeks challenge is to use your non-dominant hand to draw a tile.  I already had the thought earlier in the week to use a puzzle piece as a string and this seemed to be the place to use it.  I kept it simple and used Fife keeping that gentle music of the fife in my head to calm me.  I see there are a couple places where I let my mind wonder and so the lesson.  Be present in what you do and it will be better (not always perfect)

Before I received my official Zentangle® tiles I created a lot of ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art). I was so used to doing larger work that when I did purchase these beautiful tiles I was uncomfortable with the small size.  Now I have fallen in love with these scrumptious little tiles and I love the flexibility of doing both larger work and a beautiful little piece.  What follows is some of my ZIA.

Since I have just started this blog I thought I would post some of my tiles I have done in the past before moving forward with new creations.  This tile was for one of my sisters using her initials as tangle prompts.
