An inclusive heart

When drawing lines, it's possible to follow your heart and include others.

Wishing you a loving Valentine's Day.  For more Valentangle inspiration, check out the Diva Challenge.

My string was created by making a stencil from a die, and tracing it onto my paper.  I used Strathmore multi media 140 lb cut to postcard size.  The die (shown) is from Impression Obsession.  I had intended to send the original art as a thank you to one of my awesome Senators.  It turned out so well that my husband talked me into making prints from the original so I can include many more recipients.  I loosely had Oblique and Isochor in mind as I drew and Static showed up on his own! 

My art, both Zentangle® and crafts such as card making, helps me to keep moving forward, eventually.  

Here are some additional "therapy" examples:

An inlay technique made lovely cards using that same die.  

A card made using a gorgeous stamp from Penny Black.

Valentines made using Lawn Fawn dies and stamps.  

Another die set from Impression Obsession.  I also used a dotted rectangle die from Lawn Fawn.  

And my February calendar in my bullet journal.  Turns out, Oof filled in looks like Bales!
