Weekly Diva Challenge #254


This „weeks challenge # 254 „ is about creating a tangle for Valentine.

Yesterday evening on Valentines Day I felt so „yin and yang“ , so I tangled on a round tile. I started with the Aura-Leah tangle in heart shape in the middle, used Phicops and Ovy for the dots. The black yin is covered with lilypads und in the white yang are growing some heart shaped pokeroots.

I have to admit, that since here in Germany Valentines Day turned out to be more a day for consumption than for caring I am a little bit annoyed. It seems like everybody expects at least flowers that day or even bigger presents. And a lot people even don‘t know anything about the real meaning of Valentines Day, they just know it from the commercials. Certainly I don’t know if it is the same in other Countrys.

But creating something like that Valentangle is something that comes from the heart, so thank you Laura for letting people know that there is much more than only consumption on this day!

Love to everyone and have a great new week.

  • You are right, Simone. Valentine’s day has become another commercial holiday. However, it is nice to take the time to let people know that they are loved. Everyone is so busy these days. My hubby and I uses any excuse to have a special dinner and dessert LOL! I do like that you worked on a round tile. This is a lovely piece.

    What a lovely Zendala. I do like how you incorporated the yin-yang into the valentines theme. I know what you mean about Valentines, in fact it applies to a lot of holidays that card manufacturers have jumped on the bandwagon with. Then not satisfied with ruining existing holidays like Mothering Sunday they start creating new ones like so called Fathers Day.

    I’ve just discovered it is a public holiday in Canada today, so no Diva Challenge until tomorrow, but it has given me the chance to catch up with the last few entries from last week.

  • Was für ein schönes und farbenprächtiges Zendala!
    Was den Valentins-Tag angeht, kann ich dir nur zustimmen. Es braucht keinen festen Tag, um geliebten Menschen zu zeigen, dass man sie liebt!
    Liebe Grüße, Annette
