Dare #26Erin at the Bright Owl loves Halloween and Fall. So her "dare" this week was to do a Halloween or Fall inspired zendala. Since I had already done the Halloween thing last week, I decided fall colors would be better. While my kiddos at school love Halloween, I am not so enthralled by it. Besides, I used up all my ideas on Dare #25. I used some goldish colored cardstock to work on and then brown and orange pens. Fall is one of my favorite times of the year. I love the colors, the crunch of leaves, the smell of wood smoke . . . . everything about it. So this was fun! Thanks, Erin!
Celtic Knot # 8Judy West at Creative Doodling gave us a beautiful template. Her challenge was to fill it with leaves. This was fun. I loved playing in the leaves! There are a few tiny 'boo-boos" but not enough to change the fact I really like this one. It is one of my favorites I have done in awhile. (Considering how many I do, whew!)
Challenge # 90The Diva's challenge was to take the first string pattern over at TanglePatterns.com and use it to tangle on. I had played around with this string when it first came out. I use my calendar to put those in. But rather than scanning the earlier tiles, I decided to do one in celebration of Challenge 90. I love the challenges each week. Now that doesn't mean I like them. Sometimes they are hard and I get frustrated, but I always grow and learn something new. And that I love.
