The mantle above and around my fireplace is white and for years I have wanted to do something with it. Of course, I would have loved to tangle it, but the surface is very textured and bumpy and doesn't take the tangling well. I know this because I have tangled a tile on a wall upstairs with the same texture. While it was okay for a tile size, a large area like this just wouldn't look good. I had mounted several zendala tiles on canvas that I painted for class examples and had a light bulb moment....hmmm, these are the size of the sides of my mantle. I hung them up and decided I needed some smaller ones on the top, so I mounted some regular zentangle tiles on smaller canvas. Now I have my own little mini-gallery!
