Love Is In The Air



It's February the month of Love.


Two Lives, Two Hearts joined as One. 


Happy Valentine's Day 


All we need is Love.


These pages were so much fun to create.


Isn't it wonderful that sometimes all we have to do is smile 
to spread a little love 
and brighten up someone's day.


There are so many ways to show your love,
&
Love Always Wins.

Have a LOVELY day :)

  2. Hi Connie,

    I just love your doodle/zentangle drawings! Very creative and fun! I saw some indian pottery that reminded me of zentangles and took some photos this past weekend. I need to get out my sketchbook and see what I come up with.

    Thanks for visiting me. Yes, it's so nice to have a store nearby. I hope she makes it in this economy.

    Hugs,
    Kay

  6. Such cute drawings and lovely sayings. You're talented! I wish I could settle down enough to sit and draw. I haven't done it in years. And, I went to college for art! I admire that you do that.

    1. You sound like someone that needs to purchase a sketchbook and keep it handy . . . I'll just bet if you had it and a bundle of cool markers setting by your favorite chair . . . Well, you wouldn't be able to not dive right in :)
      Thanks for your lovely visit.

  12. There is joy in your art journals - I can tell you really enjoy them. I am curious - what kind of pens do you use? I am looking around for new ones.

    1. I love fine point Sharpies for my drawings and then Tombow and Tim Holtz Distress markers to color in. Tombow in my opinion have better size tips, but Tim Holtz markers come in amazing colors :) I even sometimes use crayon brand . . . they come in two sizes and they will save you a lot of money :)
      Have fun and thanks for the sweet visit.
