How to draw NOVIO

West Virginia tangler Beth Snoderly is back today with her Novio tangle. Beth already has well over 20 great tangles on the site and several are my personal go-tos, Pozer leaps to mind but I could add more to the list …

Beth writes,

I decided to try a heart tangle. I have been down sick with the flu and now an upper respiratory infection, because I tried to go back to work before I fully recovered. So I decided to make the best of it and tangle some.

This is Novio, which I believe means sweetheart, in Spanish. My husband is learning Spanish, so since he is my sweetheart, I figured that would be a good name for a heart tangle.

Sometimes the more simple a tangle is, the better. I went with simplicity for this one.  I change it up the way I shade it or fill it in.

I totally agree with Beth, the simpler the tangle, the better. Hearts placed in alternating offset rows make for a lovely tangle of strings of hearts on a banner that can be embellished however you like. Both the banners and the hearts.

Beth illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Novio below and shows it in a monotangle Zentangle® tile with a couple of easy variations to get your explorations started.
