Last month, I went to Irving, TX for a CZT Marketing Retreat. Among the myriad of wonderful things I learned there was something called Tiny Tangles. It is a technique invented by Angie Vangalis, CZT that she shared with us at the retreat.
I usually use an 005 Micron in my work anyway, so while it took me a little while, it was fun. I only had time to do one ATC-size and one Tile- size, but I plan on doing more. It’s an easy way to add color to your tangles.

I love the way this turned out. I love the color combination. I didn’t shade it since there was already color there, but I might try that next time with colored pencils. I used an 005 on this tile to draw the tangles. I used Ranger Adirondack ink pads for the color.

This was just a quick experiment where I tried to make the squares look like they were dropping downward. I used a purple 01 Micron, which is something I almost never do, and a Staz-On grey ink pad for the squares.
