Weekly Challenge #204 "Valentangle"

Well it is February and we are snowed under. Here in Boston we have had record amounts of snow for the year with more to come. Valentines day should be a bright spot in all this cold and confusion, but I have never bought into this holiday. My husband, thinking he is being cute says, "every day is valentines day!" We also know this is not true. I do like the idea of brightening things up with a touch of red. My red pen hardly gets much use so it was juicy with ink and a pleasure to draw with.

I did find it intriguing that the Diva used a tan Zendala tile and with the use of red made it look very pretty so I got stuck on that idea. My first tile I did on a 3.5" square tan tile and the only thing I really liked about it was how the red hearts with the highlights looked so striking.

Since I have many tan Zendala tiles and almost never use them (because I really don't know how to start), I visited my favorite artists blog  Enthusiasticartist.blogspot.com and got some inspiration from her on a post about spirals. This tile took me what seemed to be forever to finish with all its detail and Zendala space, but it was fun to do and I really like the results, hearts and all.

Thank you, Margaret for letting me take your "style" out for a spin. It was a wonderful ride!

  1. I love both of these! The Zendala is wonderful. I'm a bit obsessed with Marasu right now. Well done.

  2. Both are beautiful, but the zendala is my favorite. The first is great on the tan tile.
