Zentangle Challenge #250 -Bringing it back to the Old School

So many new techniques to see and play with, so many posts, so many tangles… It's with relief that each week I do the Square One: Purely Zentangle prompt, and now is the much appreciated challenge from Laura at www.iamthedivaczt.blogspot.ca to go back to basics with a 3.5" square tile, black micron, and pencil and tortillion, and no planning… just letting the Zen in Zentangle be. So with little thought, I got out my supplies and went to the first 4 tangles that I put in my workbook after taking the basics course in Oct. 2011. I used the basic "Z" string. These are the first tangles that jumped out at me that I wanted to learn. I probably haven't used Flutter Tile more than a couple of times since, and though I love it, it's much easier to do on a page with a grid like my workbook. I also rarely use the basic chaining, and usually take it further to Punzel. This was a good exercise and I might just do another tile with the next 3 or 4 tangles!
