Diva's challenge for my day 295 was to make a piece autumn inspired with leaves. I love fall and this time of year - crisp cool mornings and beautiful colors! I decided I would go outside and find some really pretty leaves and trace them onto my paper. Then I would either tangle on the leaf space or around the leaf space. Once I had gathered the leaves, I went to tracing. I just could not get satisfied with them - they wouldn't lay flat. then I decided to paint one side and press them onto the paper. That sort of worked. The images weren't super so I just tangled over them.
Thursday was day 296 and fall festival. I love fall festival at our school - I really do. The kids have such a great time (and so do the teachers). There is a dunk tank and inflatables. Lots of games and booths to visit. We also had perfect weather for those things operating outside. The only down-side is that I get to school at 6:30 am. I left fall festival at 7:00 pm. So while I had a great time, my feet and legs were "crying". I am clearly too old for nearly 13 hour days on my feet. I did think I would be able to get out of bed on Friday morning. I worked on Adele Bruno's string challenge Thursday evening while Ray fixed supper. It uses fandance, swarm, and cruffle.
Okay. I don't like this next tile. At all. But I am so worn out, it is going to have to do for today, 297. I struggle with "over under" type tangles for some strange reason. So when I saw that Square One's challenge was to use W2, I was less than thrilled. I may try to do another more inspired one at some point.
Thank you for dropping by and leaving me some sunshine. I hope you are having a wonderful day!
