From the diva: Weekly Challenge #198: "K.I.S.S. (Keep it simple, silly!)"

It's never been easy for me to refrain from over-thinking, and Zentangle has rarely been any exception.  I often struggle with it, putting way too much thought into anything and everything.

This week's KISS challenge is a welcome reminder for me, and I've got 2 tangles to show for it.

I was drinking coffee.  See the bean?  :) The patterns are Chard (by Linda Farmer) and Mosey, which is one of my own.  You can see the step-out here.  Feel free to use the pattern if you like. :)

I rather like this one. I made it a point not to fill every space (something I tend to do).  I used Cubine (a ZT original), CO2 (by Antonine Megger), Reticulated (by Livia Chua), Girlande (by Simone Bischoff), and a rather simplified version of Scrawlz (by Jane Dickinson).

I hope all of you have a simply wonderful holiday, and I leave you with something I ran across on social media this week.  It has nothing to do with the challenge, but it's a beautiful reminder of how we all shouldn't believe we see our own beauty accurately.
