Diva Challenge #254: Valentangles

“Let your love shine in….”

“All you need is love…”

“How deep is your love?”

There are SO many songs about this “crazy little thing called love” and their popularity reaches a peak this week: It’s Valentine’s Day! No wonder the Diva took up this theme and made a challenge out of it: “Create a tile or piece with a Valentine’s Day Flair”. And there are some absolutely gorgeous and love-filled contributions this week, do check them out! (preferrably after reading this post and many leaving a like or a comment 😉 ) I also want to thank everybody who came over here for the last challenge and left a like or even a comment. It’s such a nice feeling to know that there are people out there who appreciate what you’re doing! 🙂

My tile is somewhat typical and not very inventive. However, I love how it turned out (Join is such a lovely pattern!) even though the illusion of depth didn’t turn out exactly as I hoped it would. But to me it looks good and I hope for you, too!

Tangles used: Crescent Moon (heart tangleation), Join, Tipple

I’m not sure, though, that I’ll be tangling a lot more with red. I love the combination of black, white and red SO much but red is so hard to scan! This picture is pretty good now, but it took me quite a few tries to get it up this way…
Join took a bit to practise since I haven’t used it for a long time but I’m really happy how it turned out now. Oh, and I used TanglePatterns String 41 for this tile (I love it, might be doing some more tiles with this string). I’m SO bad at strings so I’m very glad that there’s a resource like that out there.

Enjoy the weekend, have a wonderful Valentine’s Day with all your loved ones and see you next week for a new Diva Challenge!

    1. Vielen Dank für den lieben Kommentar! 🙂
      Du hast natürlich Recht, wir tanglen ja nicht für den Scanner sondern für uns. Aber es ist einfach so schade, wenn das Werk auf das man stolz ist dann digital auf einmal… äh.. “suboptimal” aussieht, weil es einen Stich hat, den man nur schwer wieder wegbekommt. Aber ich hab ja bald Übungsmaterial, für einen Tausch auf Facebook arbeite ich gerade an 8 ATCs mit (kann, werd ich aber überall haben) roten Akzenten. Vielleicht hab ich danach ja den Dreh bei der Bildbearbeitung raus. 😉

      1. Ich finde, dass auch in schwarzweiss, die Bilder “in echt” viel, viel schöner aussehen, als auf dem Bildschirm. Aber ich verstehe ganz genau, was du meinst – schade ist es!

  1. I really like your heart version of crescent moon. I must try that string too, it looks impressive,
