#DC386: Drawings and Dewd

Standard

This week’s Diva Challenge is to either finish an incomplete tile, or make a new one using the patterns Drawings and Dewd. I didn’t have anything in progress, so I tried my first-ever Drawings and Dewd.

Somehow I got out of sequence. This should have been last week’s collection. Somehow I misplaced it after I found the Grant Snider piece. . .

#DC385: Valentangle

Standard

This week’s Diva Challenge is to tangle something inspired by Valentine’s Day. I studied Chen Sin Chun’s lovely pattern, Peacock, and wondered if I could create something like it, but starting with a heart. Here is what I came up with:

#DC385, Zentangle, #HeartEcho

I’m calling it HeartEcho.

You can see my other Zentangle Valentines here.

Happy Valen-Tangles Day to You

Standard

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?

#DC384: Anthem

Standard

I drew the Diva Challenge featured tangle, Anthem, and added a little Valentine love with Heartrope and filled in with Fescu. I used a brush marker from a set my son Andy gave me a year ago for the background.
