Pattie's Creations - Challenge #74 - Anything Goes

Happy Friday!!  It's time for a new challenge at Pattie's Creations and this week it's one that anyone and everyone can join in because it's ANYTHING GOES!  Now admit it - we all love those challenges because it's time for us to just show off whatever we've been working on - or create something new.  And when it's Anything Goes, there are no guidelines to follow...you can just let your creativity shine!  

Even though it's still August, here in Ohio we have been having some Fall temperatures lately.  Believe me, I'm not complaining!  There's only so much that you can take off and still be modest when it's hot and humid.  I'm looking forward to Fall and the colors it brings.  It's my favorite time of the year.  One of the things I love about Fall is the Mum's.  In our small town we even have a Mum Festival!  For my creation this week I chose "Mums in a Basket".  I wanted to keep it rustic and soft so I used pencils to color it...and when I colored the flowers I wanted them to be more full so I took some liberty with the image and colored all around the lines too making the flowers full and the lines more like defined petals.  I really liked how it turned out.  Now admittedly the picture isn't the best.  I was running so late when I took the picture and didn't even notice it wasn't a great picture until I pulled it up to send it...but I didn't have time to retake it.  

So join in the fun and let's see what you create in the next couple weeks.  Remember that at Pattie's Creations you must use a stamped or digital image in your project some way.  Thanks for stopping by!!
