How to draw 2V

Zentangle pattern: 2V. Image © Linda Farmer and TanglePatterns.com. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. You may use this image for your personal non-commercial reference only. The unauthorized pinning, reproduction or distribution of this copyrighted work is illegal.Today we present 2V, a dramatic new tangle from Taiwan CZT Ginny Lu.

Ginny has previously shared her very popular Seawave tangle with us.

Ginny sent along this reference photo of her inspiration for deconstructing 2V as a tangle.

many of our tangles are only one or two strokes that repeat over and over. We put a lot of time and thought into deconstructing familiar and seemingly complex patterns down to their essentials. This allows you to get into Zentangle’s process without trying to draw something.” ~ Zentangle blog

2V makes use of the Zentangle technique of rounding (Step 4) to achieve its effect.

As you’ll see below in Ginny’s lovely examples tiles there are many ways to tangle and fill 2V. I used Ginny’s basic example from her 2V steps for my grid-based example on a small scale, Ginny’s larger formats on the example tiles present many ways to vary the tangle and gives much more room to achieve the rounding — without severe eyestrain 😉

Ginny illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing 2V below. I’m totally guessing the 2V name comes from the shapes of Step 3.

    Hello,

    I like the asymmetrical design of this tangle. It “turns it on its edge” a little bit !

  • Marion Seidel

    I love it,it is really beautiful and so unique!

  • Len de Graaf

    This tangle is such a beautiful one! Thank you so much for sharing!!

  • Paula Commander

    Every day I look for something beautiful to get me through, and today I found this! Thank you.

  • This is a fabulous tangle!! The rounding step adds a beautiful touch of grace to an otherwise angular tangle. Easy to draw, very effective and many possibilities for variation … my FAVORITE kind of tangle! Thank you, Ginny! (And your examples on 3Zs are gorgeous. :D)

  • Tracy McDonald

    Nice! I like it! I really like the fact that I can make just one, as a motif.

    I just got these little picture frames. The border is just right for tangled borders or motifs as accents. I write a “Blessing” then attach a tiny metal silver heart using a jump-ring. It says ‘made with love’. Then add tangles. The back is the same size as a ’tile’, so I put a Bible verse and tangle there also (if there is room).

    Your “2V” will fit nicely in several places.
    I also glue on tiny wooden hearts or rhinestone sparkle’s, etc. Not all of these on one frame of course.

    Very nicely done.

  • Karl Reutling

    I’ll be trying 2V for sure. Thank you!

  • Laura Liu

    A great example of using “Rounding” and the string to develop more possibilities. Great Job! Love it!

  • Thank you very much for this lovely tangle!

  • Thanks for sharing. This will be a fun one to play with.

  • I had a play with this tangle today – it needs a fair bit of focus, at least it does for me – but the results are really striking and quite different. I know I’ll find a place for it on my tiles. Thanks for sharing.

  • Nicole

    Hello Ginny,
    I’ve tried your tangle right now: It’s amazing!

    Thank you very much for 2V and I hope you’ll share more of your tangles with us.

    Best regards and greeting from Germany,
    Nicole

  • Rosemary Turpin

    That`s such a gorgeous tangle, Ginny! I`ve already used it in a fluorescent piece that is currently hanging in an N.D.G. (Montreal) restaurant called Café 92 degrès! (That fluorescence was an interesting experiment.)

  • Jyothi

    Thanks for the lovely tangle. You can do so much with it.
