Such A Hearty Week

Valentines Day is approaching and there seem to be a lot of heart-themed tangles coming out to try. The Diva Challenge #204 is to create a "Valentangle". I decided to draw in the round and add some pinks and reds. As you can see, my zendala tile was bent a little, but I wanted to use it. I suppose I could cut around the flower shape. Hmmm, not a bad idea, then I could build up a 3D tile. Or not.

I've been wanting to try more of the Bijou in a standard Zentangle tile. I'm still not real happy with it, but I'm slowly getting there. A bit more practice, I think.

I also wanted to give a Talavera Tile a go. Getting excited about heading to Santa Fe in April for TangleU (A CZT only event). The tiles we create, and will be swapping, are inspired by the Talavera ceramic tiles. Here's my first attempt.

Talavera Tile

I think that I've been enjoying adding some bright colors since we've been hammered by snow and cold lately. It looks very black and white outside so bringing in some color is very pleasing.
