AlphabeThursday - Vortex


 VORTEX.  Isn't that a great word.
From Wikipedia:
A vortex (plural: vortices) is a spinning, often turbulent, flow of fluid. The motion of the fluid swirling rapidly around a center is called a vortex.

I never use the word myself, even though I live in tornado alley...When I saw Sandra Strait's Tangle, I needed to try it out.  I think coloring it or drawings all sorts of designs inside your vortex would be neat.  To get started, link here.

To find other words that start with V, visit Ms. Matlock's AlphabeThursday and see!

Oooh, those tangles are so cool. They would be really fun to color. Doodling is a great creativity booster for me. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for the cool link! my girls have been drawing tangles recently - makes me wonder what they feel they're being sucked into... : )

Great choice for the letter V.

I had never even heard of tangles till I came here. Thanks for introducing me.

What a cool idea! Very awesome.

The tangles look like fun! The vortex has a lot of energy. Meeting up with the vortex of a tornado would not be fun, so hopefully, you will have no need to use the word in that context.

What a cool post! I love those tangles!!!

I am not interested in experiencing any vortex in my part of the state!

Have not seen any flying vortex's in this area, but we do have a long hurricane season!

Fun design...colors would be cool!

I love the abstract quality of that drawing. It makes me itch to get out my water colors and paint it for some reason.

I can't imagine living in Tornado Alley. Although we die here in AZ of heatstroke in the summer, I think the fear of tornadoes woud be worse...especially with the increase in natural disasters in the world.

I really enjoyed your link this week.

Thank you!

A+
