While we see lots of doodle art being done, we wanted to take it to the next level and share some amazing projects with you that incorporate the art, which can be used as is, looks amazing when color is applied and then can be cut up into pieces and parts to fit your creative style.

Planners are all the rage and this Tangled Planner Page created by Kasia Frezja is a great way to show off your Tangles.  Color them in to match the season, the holiday or just how you feel that week.


TATTERED TANGELS PACKS – 8 themed packs with an abundance of art choices that were designed be the focus of a handmade card, the center of attention on a scrapbook layout or cut up into fine detail and added to any mixed media project.  Each pack has 12 different art pieces printed on our Leather Mistable Paper.

The pieces within the packs are filled with fun sayings, inspirational thoughts or fun simple pieces of art ready to be part of your next project.  This fun handmade card ‘Thinking of You’ by Yasmina Tin-Sang was painted with our Baseboard Mist and you can see how very different the yellows are when painted on the Tattered Tangles paper vs. being painted on the matte finish background paper.  The combination is what makes this card so special.

Agnieszka Bellaidea created this ‘Be Amazing’ mixed media card and added her own personal doodle style.  Our Tattered Tangles packs are a great way to get your doodles going.  When creating your own art you can start with our blank ‘Leather’ Paper or you can doodle anywhere you like and the results will be unique depending on the pen, marker or pencil you use and the base paper of choice.

Just a bit more about this special ‘Leather’ paper, it got the name from the way it feels, smooth like a piece of leather, but creativity what it is all about is a finish that brings the best out in all colors added and allows the paint or color float.


‘Find Yourself Canvas’ by Dana Tater.  Coloring in the Lines – add deep rich color where you want and in any color palette.  Dana then created cut outs within the art and finely cut out the title to for this layered look.  Add to a stretched canvas, journal cover or a handmade card with touches of canvas and jute tinted in rich colors to bring out this fun color palette.


This ‘Just Breathe’ Handmade Card by Marie Johansson, shows off how beautiful the Tangles are when a Watercolor paint effect is used.  Our Mist Paints are perfect for watercoloring, just blend, dip in your brush and paint.  Our Mists with a unique recipe of colors and mica glimmer, when you water color the unique blend of color of each shines beautifully through.


Tattered Tangles allows you to create your own scrapbooking paper in the color palette of your choice.  It is a perfect companion to other paper lines as well to create trendy, unique scrapbook layouts like this ‘Swirl Tangle’ Layout by Ilana Polakiewicz.
