DIVA Challenge 324 - Tangled Heart

Over at the DIVA guest challengers are taking over for the summer. This first week it is Jessica Davis' turn and she goes all out on hearts. The samples she laid out are second to none...simply breathtaking!!!

Oh, well. Maybe I can talk faster than she can. Hihihi! :-1

I made two hearts - it needs two to tangle they say. The first heart I started with a big loop and covered it with a heavy band of Flowervine. Then I gave this loop a Quasimodo and voila, my heart was done.

My second  is a normal heart string, normal everything, and all in normal red, dark, and ... it looks almost sinister. I loooove the tangle Wisket, but of course, it should not be in a heart!

  1. Susie, these are great! Thanks for doing not one, but TWO hearts for this week's challenge. My favorite is the first one with the offset loop. Very cool. Thanks for participating in this week's challenge!

    1. Thank you for your kind comment, Gudrun. The second tile was just an afterbirth. Can happen when you are in the swing of things.

  4. Both heart compositions are beautiful, but just to shake things up, I'll disagree with Gudrun. I think your use of color and "texture" in your second tile is stunning. What technique and media did you use to add the dark orange to the paper? Very nice.

    1. Thank you so much for your lovely comment, Suzanne. Watercolor, Suzanne, and a bit of red color pencil on the hearts in the corner to make them stick out a bit more.

    1. My dear Anne, me too. Sometimes I get carried away with too many colors when I actually prefer it more monotone. But the tangles.... ARGH! Thanks so much for taking the time to comment.

  6. Lordy I have such short term memory! After looking at the Tangles then the video, then the comments I think what was I gonna say???? The first heart looked like it could have been worn by a bride, it would have made a lovely veil. I did a red heart with a similar pattern but it just didn't look right so I didn't submit it, now I see what I could have done! Neat work Susie!

    1. Start at the bottom of the page, Trudi, and work your way up - I mean 'scroll' your way up. By the time you reach the tiles, you'll even have forgotten that there WERE comments. LOL
      Thanks, Trudi, for your lovely comments.

  7. Two wonderful tiles. The first one is very romantic, I like the woven flowers. The second tangled in your striking way is stunning. I like both! Greetings from Germany, Margarete
