Drawing and doodling can be a very calming activity with interesting results. Tangling is a focused form of doodling using detailed patterns and effects.

This kit comes with everything you need to get started with your tangles! You get a soft graphite drawing pencil & sharpener, a kneaded eraser, 20 archival paper tiles (3.5 squares), 2 archival ink pens in 0.1 and 0.2mm, and basic white drawing paper for working out your ideas. Several pages of instruction have you practicing random lines & squiggles, effects like shading & sparkle, patterns & borders, beginning creatures, flux patterns, Hollibaugh woven looks, Roxi (looks like beads on a string) and nature motifs. There are loads of tips and inspiration followed by prompts which show an outline image that you then complete as you like. You can apply these techniques to other crafts as well, such as a picture frame (shown in this book). Your 40 pg book and supplies are contained in a snazzy portfolio/box with tangling on the cover.
