Zen Colouring Contest #16 - A chance to WIN SBD by colouring a weekly pattern!

in #zencolouringcontest2 years ago (edited)



Hey Steemians!

Week 16 of #zencolouringcontest starts now!

Each week I will provide a stencil to be coloured in with no restrictions on the medium used, with a chance to win 45% of this posts payout and the weeks' donations for 1st place.

To add a little twist and interaction within the community, there will be a featured colour each week, picked at random from entrant's choices. This colour must be used in some way in your interpretation (use as little or as much of the featured colour as you like).


The featured colour this week is Violet
Below is a screen capture of the random picker's selection:
(with example shades of the colour)

Love the design, hope that i can participate this week!

Holaaaa a todossss! Bonito y significativo el color Violeta...color que tiene un profundo efecto sobre la mente, equilibra la mente y ayuda a transformar las obsesiones y los miedos. Excelente elección @magiccleatus, mi gente bella aprovechemos esta tranquilidad que nos provee el color morado o violeta y volemos con la creatividad!!!

Beautiful lotus theme this week. I can’t wait to see the results come flooding in. 👏👏👏👏👏👏

Thank you. I am very interested to see what the community create. I was reviewing my old work just the other day and came across the lotus I did 6 months ago and I immediately wanted a similar pattern to be this weeks stencil!
