How to draw HEARTLINE

Zentangle pattern: Heartline. Image © Linda Farmer and TanglePatterns.com. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. You may use this image for your personal non-commercial reference only. The unauthorized pinning, reproduction or distribution of this copyrighted work is illegal.Here’s another lovely Valentine-themed tangle pattern for your collection. Heartline is from Aussie tangler Helen Williams, who shared the sweet Heartstrings tangle with us last year about this time.

Helen’s steps actually deconstruct the trademarked Open Hearts design by actress and artist Jane Seymour, aka Bond Girl Solitaire and Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman, among her many film and TV credits. So in order not to get tangled up in any potential trademark issues, today I am using one of Helen’s variations to represent the pattern.

This one is for those of you who love continuous line patterns like the official tangle Eke, Mary Masi’s Lukiline, Adele Bruno’s Fancy Nancy, Lori Howe’s Heartvine, or Ksenija Vojisavljevic’s Dooleedo.

For me the trick for this version of Heartline is to focus on aligning the top inner point of each heart with the outside edge of the previous one and to keep them puffy. Otherwise my heartlines started to go uphill or downhill, depending on how out of whack I was headed. I added a simple aura and a hint of shading to complete my example.

Helen illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Heartline here on her blog and includes some suggestions for ways to vary the pattern.

    I love this Heartline pattern. It is beautiful. I will have some fun with it. I also wanted to know how to print from Flickr so I could try the Heartvine as well. I am a newcomer and I have been enjoying every minute of tangling.
