Tangled Thursdays

For this weeks Tangled Thursday theme, Elaine chose "hearts".  I like tangling using a shape as a starting place, so drawing a heart and filling it wasn't pushing me to experiment. Instead, I decided to do it backwards and fill all the negative space, leaving the hearts blank.  I was very pleased with the outcome, but I really need to work on my lighting and photography.  The designs at the top are a little fuzzy.
I also drew a tangle inspired by a design I saw on-line - a heart featuring the "cancer ribbon", and it seemed only appropriate to add some touches of pink.  

Inspired by a design by  metacharis
Tangled Thursday is a weekly feature hosted by Heather at Books and Quilts.  Visit her blog to see what others are tangling or to join the fun.  


  1. Brilliant idea to use the negative space. very effective. I like the way you used Cadent on the second heart to look like a ruffle along the right edge. One of these days I will try colour. So far I've only admired other's use of it. It's your turn to select our challenge and set a due date.

    1. Thanks for the reminder, Heather.

      For next week's (November 21) challenge, the theme is "Thanksgiving". Interpret that however you would like - related shapes, words, patterns or whatever strikes you.

  2. Nice use of colour, Tami! I love the negative space one, too. I, too, am going to try colour one of these days. Even though I consider myself pretty good at taking photos, I haven't been successful at shooting pieces like this. I'm scanning mine now and it seems to be working a little better.

  3. Still amazes me how you have become an "artist" on top of your other many talents! Beautiful!
