Pinwheels for Peace

I missed last week's Challenge from the Diva . It took me Forever to come up with Inspiration for the "Love is all you need" challenge, and then I had to work all weekend. So that piece is still a "work in progress.

That Challenge invited us to express the Love that can change the world, and Laura related that to America's great tragedy of 9/11/2001.
And springing from that, this week's Challenge:Pinwheels for Peace . You can read more about the Pinwheels for Peace project here. It's a worldwide visual celebration of the International Day of Peace (September 21). AND it uses the terrific slogan "Imagine . . . whirled peace!"

So Laura challenged us to draw and tangle, or otherwise create pinwheels. Because Saturday sneaked up on me again, I elected the "flat version," but maybe next year I can get myself, my resources, my friends and family together ahead of time!

I did do three tiles, and then to emulate a cluster of pinwheels in the wind, I put them all on the scanner together.

 In "real life" I really don't like the first one I did, which is in the center above, but the contrast between the patterns shows much better in the scanned version! Sometimes I love my scanner -- and sometimes I don't  ;  ).

For now,
Blessed Be and Joyous Tangling!

More soon!


  1. All three tiles are wonderful, and yet so different from each other. I like that you only used two tangles in each, it made for a more dramatic outcome.

  2. Well I love all three... they are all so different and striking! The first one actually has movement, the second looks like it's churning bubbles and third has such depth. I can't wait to see your "love" challenge sometime.

  3. nice job....I like them all a party! m

  4. I like them all. too. That first one really moves-much like a real pinwheel. Peace!
