Welcome to Tangled Thursday. A few of my local and online friends have joined me in an occasional Zentangle challenge. We'll take turns choosing a theme and them post our drawings in about 2 weeks time. All are welcome to join in the fun. If you are new to Zentangles, then visit the website for a complete explanation and all sorts of online resources. I'm also a big fan of TanglePatterns.com.
A while back, I bought some little wood shapes with the plan of painting them white and then drawing on them. I saw some on another site where the artist drew directly on the unpainted wood. It was a very appealing look.
The heart is about 2 1/2 inches high, 3 inches wide and just over 1/32 inch thick. Tangle used: W2.
The bird is about 3 1/2 inches long and a bit over 2 inches tall. Tangles used: Hair, Keeko, Papyrus, Cheesecloth and Bask-it.
It was fairly easy to draw on this wood as the surface was very smooth. occasionally the pen seemed to snag as I drew across the grain, but it drew beautifully when I was going with the grain. I am looking forward to purchasing more shapes.
I have had private messages for a few readers who have told me that they have been trying a few of the tangles. I hope that they will soon share their work either on their blog, or by sending me their photos and I'll post them here.
Our next challenge is for two weeks. This time, you need to draw on a medium other than paper. It could be glass, fabric, wood or any other type of surface. Go wild.
