diva . I have always loved this holiday...it's all about caring and love. It doesn't have to be romantic love it can be family love or friendly love! Your creation could also end up being a thank you to a teacher or some other special role model in your life.
This was one of my first ZIA/ zentangle inspired art pieces. Of course for me ZIA's are usually greeting cards. I have a real burden for making cards....but I need to get them in the mail more often. Now that we have sold Dreamweaver my goal is to spend more time creating and sending cards to those I love.
Now, Wayne is another story...he surprised me with a beauty of a valentine this evening so I had to add it to the blog...over the years he has often done this and I love it and he knows it touches me deeply. Here is his creation for me...he really has that Akoya pattern conquered, and I haven't even tried it yet:
Stamp ARt Shoppe. Maybe we'll see some of you there. I have met some really wonderful card making enthusiasts in this wonderful stamp store, owned by Sandy Brien. In a few days she will have my boards to show to you.
This week I will fly to the UK to do a trade show in Birmingham for Stampendous with their distributor Woodware Craft Collection. Then I will travel to North Yorkshire to do two stencil certification classes for retailers in Skipton. I love that part of the world, the people in Yorkshire have such a fun sense of humor and it's fun to poke around the cute stores in Grassington and the dales. AND of course I am looking forward to sharing stenciling with Stampendous fans too.
Pam Hornschu, offered to keep up Zensdays with Lynell and Wayne, so if I get some material to her in the next 24 hours we will keep you going with more information on tangling.
The above creation was done with the following tangles: cubine, flux, mssst, zensplosion folds, pokeleaf....these are the ones that i remember the names. Go to tanglepatterns.com to learn the steps of doing these tangles. These are easy ones to start out your sten-tangle with. The stencil used was LG747 ruffled heart.
Be sure to visit back on Thursday for our February challenge....Pam is really putting together a fun month of frilly and frou frou...and of course my design team is so clever with their creations and would love to have your supportive comments coming their way. Since I am gone there will be some great cards from guest designers on my blog!
