Zentangle luv

I’m continuing to experiment with Zentangles. Here are some that may end up on Valentine’s Day cards. Sssh!

Illustration Friday

I created this little 4 x 4 pencil drawing on card stock is for Illustration Friday. Each week a word prompt is provided as a source for art. Then we post our creations. This week’s word is “dusty.” I have to admit that I initially hated this word and wondered what in the world I […]
