I was happy to see another Valentangle challenge at the DIVA's blog this week. I have always loved hearts and making valentangles! This tile was inspired by Rick & Maria's Kitchen Table Tangle video on the tangle Waybop, and the heart variation that is posted on the zentangle.com blog today.
I used a tan zendala tile, with a black, tan, and red Micron to create the Hearty Waybop and aura's. I used Noom around the outside border (love that tangle in the round!). For the background I used graphite to make the Printemps, and shade the tile. Also, a white charcoal pencil for highlights.

In February of 1947 the Loveland Valentine Remailing Program was born. Every year, over 130,000 Valentines are sent to Loveland, where volunteers hand-stamp them with a Valentine verse (contest every year) and send them on to the intended recipients. Approximately 60 volunteers gather to stamp the verse (there is a waiting list for this duty) which is sent all over the US and more than 110 countries. Since 1962, a high school senior has been chosen to represent the program and the city as "Miss Loveland Valentine".
For more than 40 years, the streets of the Sweetheart City have been lined each February with hundreds of wooden hearts. Many proclaim personalized words of affection, devotion and admiration in 25 letters or fewer. The Thompson Valley Rotary Club has been managing the program for nearly 20 years.
Community members can request nearly anything written on the hearts, including notes in foreign languages and symbols. Each message will be stenciled on the heart with the help of local students. Proceeds of the sales go to help children locally and abroad through the Thompson Valley Rotary Club.
All quite fun to read as you are riding through town (not while driving, of course...wink).
