Creative Juice #127

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


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


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


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.

Oops! I neglected to post some Creative Juice last Friday. I hope this wonderful batch more than makes up for it.

#DC383: Ratoon


This week’s Diva Challenge is to try a new design by Molly Hollibaugh, Ratoon. I like the over-and-under woven look of it.


#DC382: Stripe String


I’m actually combining two Diva challenges, this week‘s and last week‘s, because I wanted to do both and didn’t get around to it. I’m using brand new gelly roll pens that I bought with the money my dear brother Bill sent me for Christmas (Thank you, Bill!) and I used some designs that were featured on Tangle All Around in the last couple of weeks: Heartrope, Heart N Half (with Luv-a), Stribations, and Heart Offset, with varied levels of success. I really like Heartrope and the Heart N Half/Luv-a combo.
