Pinwheels For Peace

Laura's Challenge #87 is celebrating Pinwheels for Peace for September 21 the International Day of Peace .
I chose to make a Pinwheel with just 2 tangles...marasu and yincut with a touch of peaceful calm blue.

  1. This is REALLY thrree-dimensional. Love the blues... so calming and 'peaceful'. Clever response to this challenge. Is it springtime down under? Delicate little purple/blue flowers. Lovely.

  2. This IS so peaceful. I love your choice of these tangles, and how light and airy it feels. Shelly - I am co-hosting a challenge at Artists in Blogland starting October 1. You can read about it here: http://artistsinblogland.blogspot.com/2012/09/announcing-autumn-challenge-fall.html I'm hoping some of the amazing artists from the zentangle world will participate. If you're so inclined, it would be an honor to see you there...

  10. Like the contrast of the two. Maybe if I keep trying will get the consistency of the tangles. Understand why my sister is a fan of your work.
