Starting in late January, I begin to think about hearts for Valentine’s Day when I work on my Zentangle creations. Here’s what I came up with for this year.
This was for the Diva Challenge #382. The patterns used were Heart Rope, Heart N Half with Luv-a, Stribations, and Heart Offset:
Below is Dot Grid:
And the featured pattern in this heart is Biscus. I like the shattered mirror effect:
I made this for Diva Challenge #384. The patterns are Anthem, Heart Rope, and Fescu:
I drew Heart N Half around the edges of the larger heart:
This tile features Heartswell with Kiss in the background:
And, finally, a heart with Leashed Hart around the edges:
My favorite of these is the next-to-last one with Heartswell. Which do you like best?

For this week’s Diva Challenge. “Heart of a Champion” is supposed to draw on the Olympics for inspiration, but I got distracted by the idea of Celtic hearts and decided to experiment with them. Patterns used are Shattuck, Static, Trio, and Tulipe.
In the last few weeks, most of my artwork has been valentine-related.
First though, here are some valentines I drew last year.
This year’s valentines use a variety of techniques, mostly zentangle or doodling.

For three weeks, I’ve been working on a valentine project. I assumed I could complete one heart-themed valentine drawing a day, and that, realistically, at the end of three weeks, I’d have 10-14 mini-masterpieces.
Some of these took me as long as four sessions to complete. I ended up with nine.
I wanted a whole bunch so I could pick one to make a card for my hubby.
They were inspired by pictures I’ve been saving for the past year on my Zentangle Valentine board on Pinterest.
Can you guess which one I chose for my husband?
The one dated 1-31-17.
Which one do you like the best?
