Weekly Challenge #154: valentanglin'.

The Diva challenge this week: a little Valentine's day-themed tanglin'! I did two zendalas: one in honor of my brother, who is getting hitched on Valentine's Day, and one in honor of his wife-to-be. I love him to pieces, and she is so perfect for him. Totally thrilled for them both.

Both of these are six-inch zendalas on Fabriano Tiepolo paper. 
04 sensei, 01 and 005 microns, stardust clear gelly roll pen for sparkle, 2B pencil for shading, Daniel Smith watercolors to make 'em snappy. Granulating ones... that's why they look a little grainy. I think. Gotta watch those perky cobalts.. they'll turn on you faster than you can say 'valendala'!
