Review: Tangle It! Journal

My online friends Simona Cordara, Alice Hendon, and Ina Sonnenmoser recently published a book called Tangle It! Journal*.

Tangle It! cover

The size of the book is 5.5×8.5″ which makes it nicely portable for tangling on the go.

The book consists of a collection of fun, imaginative, bite-sized activities, challenges, drawing ideas, and more. The book includes space for drawing and tangling, so it’s easy to get started with just a pen and a pencil. Anyone can use this book, no experience necessary. It’s not necessary to do the activities in order, so you can open the book at any page and get started.

I used a Micron pen, a graphite pencil, and coloured pencils, and all worked well on the paper.

Here is a sample activity. The owl on the left is already tangled, ready for you to colour. The one on the right is just a line drawing for you to tangle.

owl

The book also includes 20 new patterns. This drawing is part of a two-page spread. The page on the left (not shown) contains the step-outs for the pattern Ringz, and the page below is my drawing using this pattern.

Ringz

Below is the tangle Heart Wrap, with my drawing at the bottom.

Heart Wrap

This book is a delightful collection of fun and interesting activities, for both beginner and experience tanglers. You can order it on amazon and other online book sellers.

*Disclosure: I was given a free copy of the book in exchange for a review.
