AlphabeThursday - W2

How'd you like my new surface to doodle on?  What I did was use a square of particle board, and covered it with gesso and acrylic paint.  Then I drew my designs on top.

The new tangle I tried this week is called W2 (warp & weft) and is on the left side of the block.  This is an original 
tangle pattern from Zentangle originators Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas.  I found it on Suzanne McNeill website, and you can draw it too!  I think this is one of my favorite patterns so far!  I have to admit, I was afraid to try it, thinking it wouldn’t work for me, but it did!  I love the three dimensional look it leaves on a flat surface.

 
To find other words that start with the letter W, visit Ms. Matlock's AlphabeThursday and see!

I never thought of using anything but paper for Zentangles--your idea is so cool! And I love that Warp & Weft. Also, the pattern on the right. Does that one have a name? Oh, dear. I think Zentangles could easily become a sort of addiction, lol.
