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

Last year for International Day of Peace, we dedicated the weekly challenge (#40) to creating Zentangled Pinwheels inspired by this great website Pinwheels for Peace. Pinwheels for Peace originally started as an art installation organized by two high school teachers in Florida. They used the project as a way to teach kids how to express their feelings about the world and what's going on in it. Since then, it's grown from 500,000 pinwheels the first year to 3.5 million last year!!


Here is my first pinwheel - tangles used: Apple Blossoms and Twisted Ribbons by Suzanne McNeill CZT

thanks for looking :)

  1. What a beautiful piec your pinwheel. The balanc between blak and whit is great by making one sid dark snd fully tangled, and the others side a lot of white. Makes the pinwheel in great balance.

  9. Hi Lila, I love both of these tangles you've used. Although these are new to me, I use a lot of Suzanne McNeill's tangles, and I'm off now to try them for myself.
    Thanks for the fantastic pinwheel!
