Tangled Coloring Page

 Adult coloring pages are all the rage right now.
There are literally thousands of books for sale at
Michael's, Books-a-Million, Amazon, 
even at Tractor Supply.
So where do all those coloring opportunities come from?
And can you create your own?
They come from people like you and I,
and yes, you can create your own.
Let's start with a simple structure.
For the coloring page at the top of this post I started simple.
I drew the lines you see just above here.
Simple geometrics.
Some circles, and some lines at various angles.
Nothing to it.
Now, you could call it ready to color at this stage
you could step it up a bit
by adding tangles.
And that is what I did here.
I took that simple geometric mish mash and
added tangles to every section.
They can be simple, they can be hard.
The can be light or dark.
The idea is to have fun.

I would suggest starting with colored pencils
if you haven't colored since you were six.
You won't risk the lines running or smearing that way.

And if you don't feel like drawing up your own page to color,
just print mine out and give it a whirl.
There is a special little surprise hidden in this page.
Can you find it?
