Heather's challenge includes letting readers give suggestions for a theme for each week. My sister Tami from Just One More Thing chose the theme "Olympics" as the Winter Olympics began today in Sochi, Russia!
So tonight as I listened and watched the figure skating - I created my first Zentangle.
I quickly realized that Zentangling for me - might be a bad thing . . . nothing else was getting done!! I needed to make a meal for a family at church and I needed to pack for the weekend. I wanted to sweep and mop the kitchen. Then I told myself - I had been off work today as I really had not felt well - - - so I NEEDED to sit and relax with a zentangle most of all.
I can doodle well. I can draw a really cool 3-legged foot stool - learned it in drawing classes as a young teen. But I may be zen-challenged . . . You see in the Zentangle world there are many patterns to choose from - and they are awesome!! I learned from Tami that each pattern has a little rhythm to it and a place to start - well - here is where the challenge comes for me - - -seeing it - - - but I loved it and could hardly put it down.
I consider this Olympic inspired picture a success - - - but oh boy - far from right - - - hey - remember those puzzles you did as a kid?? "Can You Find What's Wrong in This Picture?" Well go for it!
One more challenge for you - can you find the "hidden" word in the Olympic Rings? (answer at end of post)
Have a few ideas to try that will be Olympic related - hopefully improvement will come!
Thanks to Heather and Tami for inspiring me to Zentangle!
The Olympic flag ... has a white background, with five interlaced rings in the centre: blue, yellow, black, green and red ... This design is symbolic ; it represents the five inhabited continents of the world, united by Olympism, while the six colors are those that appear on all the national flags of the world at the present time.— Pierre de Coubertin (1931)
Answer: SOCHI is spelled out in the rings - one letter in each ring.
