The Valentine’s Day edition of CJ. Wishing you lots of love.
A few years ago I started a tradition of posting a bunch of Zentangle® valentines in February. Last year I thought I coined a new term: Valentangle. This year I discovered there has been a Valentangle challenge for several years already, so I didn’t invent the word.
I tried to join the Valentangle2020 Facebook group (in fact, I tried several times), but I never got approved. I don’t know if it was a glitch, or I missed a secret deadline, or they really don’t want me.
Anyway, I’m still calling these Valentangles.
This one uses the pattern Ixorus:
This one combines Snail and Florz:
This design is called Pepper. Doesn’t it look like a zebra?
This one uses the design Mistrel:
This one is filled with Double S:
This might be my personal favorite of the group. Drupe:
I am calling this one “Heart Attack”:
This one uses Puffle, Onamato, and Luv-A. Puffle reminds me of ribbon candy.
