Diva Challenge #79 - Citius, Altius, Fortius

This weekend I was lucky enough to enjoy a full day of tangling!  My post, Haliburton Treasures, outlines some of the fun we had.

This week's Diva Challenge was issued by a guest challenger, Rho Densmore.  Inspired by the Olympics, the challenge was to use the Olympic Rings to create a tangle.  I feel like I kind of cheated with this one - I used a toonie to draw the circles (cheat #1) and I used an idea that I incorporated into the Moebius challenge from a few months ago by putting Gneiss into the background (cheat #2). I used Staedtler Ergo Soft pencil crayons to colour.

Here it is - I may add another one throughout the week...

  8. I don't think you cheated! You might ordinarily use the same tangle patterns over and over. I really like the Gneiss in back.

  9. This is amazing. I've never heard of Gneiss, but it sure looks good here as background for the rings. The shading is wonderful.
