Valentines and class projects

It's not too early to start thinking about Valentine's Day! My card has a red tile cut from card stock tangled with white ink and shaded with red pencil. In my Beyond the Basics class I usually introduce the white gelly roll pen on the black tiles. In this class I changed it to red or pink tiles so we could use them on cards. I taught some of the more complicated patterns this week and though challenging, it was fun. Remember, THERE ARE NO MISTAKES! The students tiles are pictured below.


  1. The shading on your heart is terrific; at first I actually thought it might be a cut-out! The students' tiles are great too. What stencils (?) did you use for the lettering?

    1. Thanks Margaret. On my card I used a light box and traced a calligraphy font. One of my students had her own stencil with her and that's what you see below.

  2. Love your work and great idea for a class. Your students did a great job, but that is to be expected with a great teacher ;)
