For the beginner like myself, this book includes 48 tangle patterns and borders. What I like about this book is that each step of a pattern is clearly illustrated. As you draw a pattern each new step is illustrated in red, so that you only concentrate on the next line. You don't have to decipher the instructions, as it is very clear what the next step is. This was a really big deal to me. One of the books I had purchased earlier was entirely black and white, and I felt the patterns were harder to figure out. So even if you might think this color thing is too advanced for a beginner, the author does a really good job of explaining patterns to a beginner.
The one critique I would make is that the patterns and borders don't start until halfway through the book on page 26. A beginner like myself might get overwhelmed with the all the colored snazzy stuff you see before ever getting to how to make a pattern. I was not overwhelmed. I was inspired. However, my friend ohhed and ahhed and then curled up in a ball and whimpered. So if you are brand spanking new to tangles I recommend you do this:
Browse the whole thing. Make sure you have something to wipe the drool off your lower lip. You will drool.Read more ›
The book starts out explaining color theory, and then pen and pencil techniques. In the tangle section, the author presents us with a glorious cascade of examples and projects.
What was missing (or what I was looking for) was how to do with the watercolors. I have tested how to color my tangles with watercolor and the challenge is finding a good watercolor paper. and how to get the black-white tangles show with the watercolor added to the background or with the tangle.
All in all, if you like tangles, then you will love this book, too!!!
All in all, I enjoyed this book and it nudged me out of the fear of putting color to my tangles. :)
There are lots of illustrations showing different techniques and using different tools. I particularly like the ones done in sepia tones, which the author says are good for beginners.There are ideas for bookmarks, cards, little plaques for friends, picture frames and any kind of picture you want to make. The book has a color wheel and the supplies used are explained well.
I'm very pleased with this book and it was worth the wait.
