As I mentioned several times before I have recently bought Totally Tangled by Sandi Steen Bartholomew. Pages 6 and 7 offer an example and invite the reader to make a creation in a similar fashion. I did just that. I used all the tangles from the example in the book, plus the cool boss tangle (the pattern that resembles a bunch of sunflower seeds) I learned recently.

and after shading:
Even though think I overdid the shades, especially on pearls, I am happy with the final result. Having the book to guide me makes a huge difference. Even though I am not new to drawing and painting I am learning a great deal of new things from Totally Tangled.
