Enjoy the rhythmic relaxation of coloring original tangle artwork by Jane Monk!
Coloring is a peaceful and pleasant right-brain activity that can provide a soothing and enjoyable pastime for people of any age. Unlike painting, you don't need to have the skills of an artist to create a masterpiece. All you need is to pick the colors and draw within the lines. The results can be miraculous!
Disconnect temporarily from the everyday hustle and bustle and escape to a world filled with creativity, inspiration, and serenity. Coloring helps reduce stress levels, elevates focus, and promotes a soothing, relaxing frame of mind and sense of well being.
The 52 designs in the Tangled Treasures Coloring Book are all original tangle artwork by certified Zentangle teacher Jane Monk. Monk begins the book by leading you through some basic techniques for using colored pencils or fine-point markers to color the designs, including skills like shading and blending. Each of the designs is printed on a page with a blank back, so you can remove the art from the book and frame it, if you like. Jump right in to the relaxing spell woven by Zentangles!

Tangled Treasures Coloring Book – Adult coloring Book
Tangled Treasures is by Australian artist Jane Monk. In this book she has compiled 52 of her tangle based drawings into an adult colouring book.
Jane is a self taught artist who excels with the art of tangling.
This is one of those books that I wished I had when I first started being involved in adult coloring. At the start of the book you will find an abundance of information about color theory, techniques and tips. I really like this section. It also covers backgrounds and highlights, which most books do not incorporate in their tips sections (if they have one).
The next section of the book is just as good as it contains a colored drawing. I assume because of the layout of the image that this is meant to be cut out and used as bookmarks.
The illustrations are all printed on good white paper and the paper is perforated for easy removal. The line work is crisp, black and very easy to see.
The majority of the images feature zentange designs. Some of these imagess have large spaces which will be suitable for those with visual difficulties. There are also many zentangles with small sections which may cause issues for those with arthritis, motor neuron issues or visual impairment.
I really like the selection of the whimsical issues like the flowers and birds,
fish and sea horses.
There’s a large range of variety with the images which are sure to have something to please everyone in the family.
I really like the fact that the images are perforated as it makes sharing and coloring together easy.
