Challenge #154 - Valentangle

The Diva's challenge for week #154 and she's all about Valentines Day. She asks us to create a Valentangle", great term, no? I chose to embrace hearts and of course red. My heart is a play on Maria's new tangle Aquafleur with some Knightsbridge stripes, lot's of hearts, and some Printemps with lot's of Auraknot texture. I used my wonderful Derwent Inktense pencils to add a touch of red and yummy texture with my white gel pen. I'm so pleased that my Printemp spirals magically turned into wonderful little rose bouquets when I added a wash of red to the centers.

Happy Valentine's Day to you all. Hope it's sweet and full of wonderful loving thoughts, hugs, and Zentangles!

Challenge #153 - "Use My Tangle" - Jailed Johnny

The Diva's challenge for week #153 is a UMT (Use My Tangle) challenge featuring Jailed Johnny - by Sadelle Wiltshire, CZT.

This tangle allows user to apply lot's of variations. I definitely kept to the letter, not taking it literally, but used the basic elements. Check out her step out instructions. Nice tangle Sadelle!

I used string pattern #90 and went the basic Monotangle route, nestling Jailed Johnny tangleations in bed's of Tipple, shading, and line work.. Try it, you'll like it.
