Here is what the introduction says about
Tangle It! Journal:
Welcome to Tangle It! Journal
an entertaining art activity book
Are you ready for some tangling fun?
Are your ideas about tangling all . . .
. . . well, tangled up?
This Journal will help untangle the mystery of tangling with a brief explanation of this specific art style, then we will dive head first into a whole lot of tangletastic fun and zaniness that is tangling.
In this Journal you find:
- 20 step by step instructions of new, unpublished patterns
- Tips from fellow tanglers
- Art challenges
- Inspiration and ideas
Our very first book!
So what does it take to write and illustrate a tangle journal?
Well, I can't believe I am posting these.
We all three love cats and decided to make cats be a running theme throughout the journal. Which meant we needed cats. Oh! I so can't draw!
Ina wanted Simona and I to help her draw cats.
The ones you see in the book that look real,
that look like normal cats - those are Ina's and Simona's cats.
When you see the ones that are weird or strange or look crazy like the ones above - those are mine.
We wanted borders for the pages.
So we drew about a gazillion borders.
And page decorations.
We needed little things to spice it up here and there.
So spicing away I went.
This one was fun and it gave me an excuse to make coffee at 10:00 at night.
Tangle It! Journal is educational.
Three tangle artists - Ina Sonnenmoser, Simona Cordara, and myself
provide tangling tips throughout the book.
Tangle It! Journal has twenty new, unpublished before tangles
with step by step instructions!
Art to inspire you is sprinkled throughout the book!
Tangle It! Journal has 150 pages of challenges ~
suitable for tanglers of all levels.
Its portable size is meant to be carried with you in your on-the-go lifestyle.
Most prompts can be completed in 10-15 minutes.
There are some that are more meditative and will take longer,
they are more thought provoking.
Throw in a little crazy color for the cover.
And call it done.
Here is one of the prompts I did when we were testing the book.
For this specific one we realized the blue line was too tight,
so we removed the line to give a fuller area for tangling.
Tangle It! Journal carries a good bit of our hearts!
Ina, Simona, and I hope you will love our book
as much as we do!
I bought a bunch of copies to use as Christmas gifts.
(Great stocking stuffer!)
OK, that's all the selling I'm going to do.
Love you guys!
