Challenge #126 Stencil Fun

I have to say that I really loved this challenge because this time I actually had no struggle with this challenge, well sort of no challenge.  The only minor challenge was trying to decide which stencil to use.  I have six so far.  Five from here and one from here.  I have used them all numerous times and love them.  I have to order from the internet when ever I want either brand.  

So here is my entry for Challenge #126 Stencil Fun.
I didn't have any official Zentangle squares so I whipped out the ruler and measured this one to be sure it was the right size.  I did it in my sketch book as you can see.  My stencil was a series of heart stencils that had a circle in the middle.  I didn't use the whole stencil but enough to make it basically uniform.  
Since I hadn't intended to show the sketch book I took black squares (I had them on hand) and blocked the square off so that it would show better.
I thought using the stencil was super easy and left the creative part of my brain for what to put in and around the hearts and for coloring with watercolors.  I had fun doing this one.  I didn't want anything fancy, so I decided lines was the way to go.  Sometimes plain and simple are still pleasing to me eye.
