Off the deep end

I am immersed in peyote...
I am using a new program (new to me, well-used by others) that is helping me take my Zentangle tiles and turn them into beadweaving designs. Great fun, but not all of my Zentangle inspired work lends itself to a bracelet. The next best thing: use the principles and process of Zentangle® to create something that will translate into a bracelet.
   The more I messed around the more I realized, that designing in this program was no different than approaching a Zentangle tile. One bead (stroke) at a time, one color at a time, one block at a time. I begin with no idea, and let my mind and intuition deliberately wander, just like with pen on tile.
   Here is one of my new favorites ...
