It is also the Fourth of July and in the United States we are celebrating our Independence Day with fireworks displays. There is something very mesmerizing about watching fireworks explode in the night sky in all of their brilliance.
To join in the celebration, let's create some fireworks of our own - on paper, that is!
We begin with this string~

This tangle came to mind in part because of the summer thunderstorms in our area, and because once mastered, this pattern is really fun to draw. Layering and shading add wonderful dimension to it.

The name alone fits our challenge this week and the tangle is a treat.
