How to draw HIDDEN HEARTS

The unauthorized pinning, reproduction or distribution of this copyrighted work is illegal.Heart-based tangles are always popular and it never ceases to amaze me to see how many different ways they can develop as part of a pattern or tangle.

Belgian CZT Ria Matheussen is back today with her sweet Hidden Hearts tangle. Ria recently shared her fun Tupi and Tupuk tangles with us.

Named Hidden Heartsbecause the hearts are a bit hidden into the tangle.

I know there are already a lot of “heart tangles” and I never thought I could find another one but, pure by coincidence, Hidden Hearts appeared on my paper while drawing and I’m happy to show this new pattern.

Hidden Hearts offers many variations. It can be used as a monotangle, as a background or in combination with other tangles”.

When I see that’s what’s going on, I turn my tile and do the tangle “upside down”, and the strokes seem to flow more readily. Hidden Hearts looks great any way you turn it.

Ria illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Hidden Hearts below and shares some pretty variations for her tangle including those in a lovely ZIA.
