#40 Pinwheels for Peace

"I am the Diva's" challenge this week reminds us that September 21, 2011 is the International Day of Peace.  The website for Pinwheels for Peace will give you all the information for this year's project.  I hope you will visit.

The zentangle challenge is to create a pinwheel however we are inspired to do so.  I  thought about it for quite awhile.  I looked at the template on Diva's site as well as the pictures on Pinwheels for Peace.  In a moment of bizarre inspiration (I say bizarre because I was between clients at work and it just came to me) I decided to create a pinwheel out of a tangled tile. I used a peace sign string that overlapped the edges of the tile and then tangled the peace sign with Xyp. Pais (a close approximation to Paix) and Inapod (Peas... as in whirled peas) complete the background. I cut the tile on the corners and folded it to create a mini pinwheel.




Thanks for stopping by,  Happy Tangling!

Shalom. Paz. Paix. Frieden. Pace. Pax. Peace.

Just love what you did. It's so light and airy. And, I see two of my favorite patterns in there-pais and inapod. Excellent!

I like how pais and inapod look when they curve around the finished pinwheel. Inspired idea!
