Tangling is such an interesting art concept to me. It mixes sketching and doodling and can turn a plain drawing into an elaborate, textureful scene. I made up the word textureful, but I think it fits since tangling is about building on the realistic to produce something more interesting and dramatic (or at least patterned) than what you might see in real life. So consider that some word tangling.
Did you ever play with color forms as a kid? They looked like sticker books but instead had vinyl-like pieces you could stick and re-stick to your heart's desire. My favorite ones were the Little Mermaid color forms, where you could position Ariel and her friends all over the seascape. Setting up those scenes brought joy to my little heart. (I'm not sure if anyone makes true color forms anymore, so I'm tempted to snatch these up.)
