Fluxing around with Skwim ...and a video!

Wanting to focus, I tried something new with something old.  Skwim, to me, is very familiar.  Videos, not so much.  The end result is a drawing surface to "frame" my tiles as I'm drawing, providing a pleasant background and a slightly cushioned surface. I had hoped that you'd enjoy my first video, but after much effort and time, I accidentally deleted it prior to uploading it!  Sorry, you not only miss how this project evolved, but you also miss Yoda (my cat) helping me tangle.  Perhaps you're the lucky one, I'm not sure.  So, please enjoy my second video!  I've also added below some information about the "missing" video.

If you find the video helpful, relaxing, or inspirational, please let me know.  I would very much appreciate your constructive criticism and feedback.  I'm not sure if I'll continue with the video format, your comments (or lack thereof) will help me to decide.  

Wishing you peace and calm....
