Whew! I am amazed I was able to do so many collage pieces this month. Thank you Lord! They were so much fun, and I learned so much. Fear made me delay starting them. Stupid fear.

Spoonflower Design Challenges

I completed all of challenges this month. Again, Lots of learning here. I learned how to make a check and a plaid. And my speed is improving. Very happy about that.

Along with each challenge design, I was able to create a small collection with pattern variations and solid coordinates. I may also add a ditsy print, textured solid, stripe or other coordinating pattern to them.

For the Ikat Cross, I am going to make some slight changes before working on a collection. More fun ahead. I also will work more on the two Circle pattern Ideas. 🌻

Day 30 of February’s 30-Day Creative Gathering

Use what talent you possess:
the woods would be very silent if no birds sang
except those that sang best.
Henry Van Dyke

If you want to make time fly, do a daily challenge. Haha. It feels like we should be starting May or June. As if months have passed, instead of just one. So much work has been done. I have to admit, I am pretty stoked that I completed 30 days. Hand in the air for a high five. Haha. I wasn’t sure I’d be up to it. And truth be told, I napped a lot. I procrastinated often. The muse was napping too I think.

Tomorrow I will share my collage of the 30 pieces, and also my favorites with you. Later this week I will share a small sample of the works created by the artists in the group. You won’t want to miss it!

If people would just look at the paintings,
I don’t think they would have any trouble enjoying them.
It’s like looking at a bed of flowers,
you don’t tear your hair out over what it means.
Jackson Pollock
