Diva Challenge #79 - 2012 London Olympics

iamthedivaczt Photobucket
This week's Diva Challenge - hosted by Rho Densmore, CZT - is all about the olympics coming up next month in London.

The following is quoted directly from the International Olympic Committee: "The five rings represent the five continents. They are interlaced to show the universality of Olympism and the meeting of the athletes of the whole world during the Olympic Games. On the Olympic flag, the rings appear on a white background. This flag translates the idea of the universality of the Olympic Movement. At least one of the colors of the rings, including the white background, can be found on the flag of every nation in the world." 

To check out all the olympic inspired tangles, head on over to the Diva's page here.

    1. roughly 6 1/2" x 10". it's in my Smash Journal, and i used most of the page. i like working on the larger format - my hands aren't as steady as they used to be and larger is better for me. thanks for stopping by :)
