Three Hearts (Zentangle ATC/ACEO)

Three Hearts (ATC, 2012)

“Three Hearts.”
Mixed media, June 2012

Not too long ago, I was helping my aunt and grandparents clean out the garage a d there was a dictionary they wanted to throw out; but, I had other plans for it. After taking the dictionary, I unbound it and turned the pages of words into canvases for my zentangle art. Currently, I’ve only made complete pieces in Artist Trading Cards (click here for more information); however, I’ve already made bigger sizes and they’re still works in progress.


This particular style has been something I’ve done for a while now, but only heard of what it is called recently (thanks to one of my readers!). According to, this form of art is: “Our Zentangle method is a way of creating beautiful images from repetitive patterns. It is fun and relaxing. Almost anyone can use it to create beautiful images. It increases focus and creativity, provides artistic satisfaction along with an increased sense of personal well being. The Zentangle method is enjoyed all over this world across a wide range of skills, interests and ages.
We believe that life is an art form and that our Zentangle method is an elegant metaphor for deliberate artistry in life.

I strongly recommend you try this out. Can’t go wrong with it!

This card was made with three others as a “set,” although it may seem like I’m going to go make some more of those later today. So, the final count for this hasn’t been set, yet.

I hope you enjoy it! Come back soon to see the rest of the set.

  1. Ben~I adore it! It looks fab!!! It is very relaxing, isn’t it? I’m so glad that you are sharing it with others. I haven’t done any in a while as I have been coloring digital images at night lately. I am so happy to see what you are doing though. It just warms my heart.

      Thank you for the sweet comment! I’m thinking about selling them (and probably give some away too)..Been doing some research and the prices have a very wide range…oh boy!

      Once again, thank you for the sweetness. Made my day!
