I'm having a very hard time tangling, it was a difficult week, but I thought I'd tackle Zentangle's new tangle Noom bravely in black and white and do something fast and easy. What was I thinking!
As usual, I couldn't resist and immediately started to play with Noom and some Echo Lines to see if I could make it more 3-dimensional. This is the perfect example of how Echo Lines can GREATLY transform a tangle.

The picture measures 4x4 inches. Here is a close-up:
