Zentangle Challenge #87: "String Theory v. XII: Pinwheels for Peace v.II"

This week's Zentangle Challenge (www.iamthedivaczt.blogspot.ca) was to use a pinwheel for our string - in celebration of International Day of Peace, Sept. 21, 2012. My first pinwheel string (or pattern) is a quilt pinwheel... it turned out fussier than I would have liked. Tangles used are: H2O Lilly, Facets, Trimonds and Rose (Rose is supposed to have the accent over the e, like the blush colored wine, but I can't figure out how to do that on my computer).
My second pinwheel is simpler - two tangles: Tortuga, and Efilys
The third is from a pattern I found by browsing through google images of pinwheel coloring pages. This was my favorite to do, and out of the three tiles, I managed to do four new to me tangles. I've had a lot of fun with this week's challenge! The tangles I used in this third tile: MI2, Archer, Golven, Lokomotive, Yabbut and Huggins (and woodgrain for the post)

Well Sue all your tiles are beautiful. The 1st one has a great coloring touch. The 2nd one has great depth, it looks so reel that I have the feeling I haveto take it and run with it through the wind. And then the 3rd one. I can see you had a lot of fun with this one, its definitly my favorite too. Great tangles and a perfect drawing of a pinwheel.

Greaat :)

All three so beautiful, but like Didisch, the second one makes you want to run in the wind with it.
