Tangling has become one of the most popular new design styles, with its intricate patterns and free-flowing, creative style. What often begins as a doodle on a page, beautifully detailed tangles can be spotted "growing" their way across a blank wall, embellishing a decorative pillow, or simply filling the pages of an art journal.
With Tangled Up, now young adults and tweens can discover this innovative art form in a colorful, inspiring, and guided exploration through the world of tangling. After reviewing a few basic tools and materials, along with basic techniques and embellishments helpful for getting started, tweens will embark on a creative journey through a variety of prompts, patterns, and projects guided by talented artist and teacher Penny Raile.
Featured subject matter includes developing a tangle and working unique patterns into flowers, fish, butterflies, peacocks and other animals, as well as interactive fun tangling on large canvases such as on walls and with sidewalk chalk. Aspiring artists will learn to create expressive, personalized art pieces relevant to their daily life, including monogrammed wall art in their chosen initial, tangled notebook and photo album covers, and even a decorative pillowcase. An index grid featuring a selection of popular sample patterns is included at the back of the book, for inspiration at a glance throughout the learning process.
