Zen Colouring Contest #17 - A chance to WIN SBD by colouring a weekly pattern!

in #zencolouringcontest4 years ago (edited)



Hey Steemians!

Week 17 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 Periwinkle
Below is a screen capture of the random picker's selection:
(with example shades of the colour)

Tuesday 5th, 18:00 CET - 'Week Starts' post
Tuesday 12th, 09:00 CET - 'Week Ending' post

This weeks stencil is inspired by 'The Tesseract', the 4 dimensional analogue of the cube. The tesseract is to the cube, what the cube is to the square, one more step beyond. Much like this contest, we go one more step beyond our creativity with each week that follows. I hope you all let your creative minds fly high this week!

Have fun, but most importantly have a relaxing zen-colouring sesh!
