Tangle Starts - My New Book! And a Giveaway!

Giveaway closed - winner has been contacted and book is being mailed. Thank you for participating. 
 Available as of today on Amazon.com.
(Read all the way to the end of this post
for an awesome giveaway!)
I have been wanting to put this book together
for quite some time. 
Lots of beautiful, lovely color pages for you to create art on.

Here is the description from Amazon:
Love to create zentangle / tangle art on colorful backgrounds? Are you a collage artist who loves to cut, tear, rip and glue to make fun collage elements? Love to build beautiful, colorful art journal pages? How about storing all your art in one location? Then this is the book for you! I have already created all the colorful backgrounds so all you have to do is grab your art tools and jump right in! Creating art has never been so easy or so much fun! 
Tangle Starts is just that - a start for your creative instincts to take center stage. 

Let me show you what you can do with this book.
 Tangle Starts is full of colorful backgrounds.
Full pages of bright, beautiful color that can be used a lot of different ways. 
Above is an art journal page I made with one of the backgrounds. 
You can either tear the pages out and use them as stand alones,
or you can work right in the book and have a wonderful art journal when you are all finished.
I added the animals, the words, the bench -
all that pink and purple and background design comes on the page. 
I used my Zebra Sarasa Fineliner for the pen work. 
Love that pen!
 If you are a tangle artist you can draw right on the pages and have your very own personal tangle journal. Imagine a whole book full of your very own tangle art. 
 Above is a background I drew on. I tend to tangle / draw more than I art journal, so this is mostly how I will use my copy.
This particular background in the book was made using ink sprays and a stencil. 
I used the stenciled areas to tangle this floral piece of art. 
Once I have completed all the pages,
I will be able to flip through the book and enjoy
all the artworks I've created.

Should I want to add paint, markers or other wet media to the pages,
I simply add clear gesso to the page and the colors will not
bleed through. I have already tried this and it works
very well. No bleed through with gesso.
(And since this is a printed page and not the original ink sprays, 
the color does not smear when you apply the gesso. Win/win.)
Perhaps you are a collage artist?
I used another background as the base for the page above.
I cut flowers from another piece I tangled,
and added them, along with washi tapes and pen work
to make this collage art piece.
Just for fun, I added it to your book.

You can tear pages out, rip them, cut them, punch them - whatever you wish - and use them to make collage elements. Or you can collage right onto the pages.
And you need a great pen!
I used my Zebra Sarasa Fineliner on each of
these pieces of art!

Imagine a book full of your art.
Tangle Starts is the perfect vehicle for it.

Have you wanted to try ink sprays, alcohol ink, watercolors, washi tape, collage, other mixed medias - but have been unsure how to proceed, or what supplies to purchase?
Don't wonder about that any longer. 
I have taken all the guesswork out of the equation.
And it is this very book. 

I hope you will love my new book. 
I'd like to hear what you think about it once you 
get a copy and play some.
