An Olympic Challenge

I adore the Olympics.  For as long as I can remember, once every four years, I would take a mini-vacation from my regular life and spend two weeks in front of the TV.  It didn't even matter if I liked the sport.  I just love the drama, the pageantry, the thrill of victory, the agony of defeat...  (sorry)

So, when Rho Densmore, guest blogger for the Diva challenge this week, asked us to tangle the Olympic rings, I couldn't wait to get started. Rho's art is simply beautiful and I challenged myself to come up with something as lovely.

I'm not sure I succeeded, but I will try again. After all:

So, are you taking part?

  1. Nice choice of tangles, and nice to do it in the same colour as the rings.

  10. I really like the way the colours & tangles overlap each other when the rings do. They seem to float they're so fine.
