Hearts and Tangles

There are several tangles centered around hearts. With Valentine just around the corner, it's time to bring them out and play!
Here of four of them.

This week's It's a String Thing #77 is all about heart tangles.

  Heartstrings by Helen Williams
  Heartvine by Lori Howe
  Luv-a by CZT Sharon Coforio

In this tile, I used Heartstrings (one of my favorites) and Luv-a to tangle inside the string line (String #77 by Barabara Finwall). The string line reminded me of paisley, so I drew it using only the insides of the string line I liked the drawing and I wanted to color it. I used Sakura gel pens to do so. I outlined the patterns using a Fabrico grey marker.


Here is the same tile from a different perspective

As you can see, I drew a very simple version of Luv a and only one column of Heartstrings.  I think it would be nice with a love quote written around the paisley figures.
