September Sketchbook Challenge - patterns

Patterns by Deborah Boschert
 For the sketchbook challenge this month, the theme is Patterns.  Deborah Boschert is the host, and this is an example of her artwork.
 

Now when I see of the word Patterns and art journaling on the same page, I consider all the objects around the house that can be used to make patterns.  Toilet paper rolls and screening are my favorites.




I've also been thinking about sewing lately, and am considering getting a sewing machine.  But would I really have the time, with everything else I'm doing?  Oh dear...

"Wouldn't it be nice to start sewing again?  I remember I hated it in Junior High...  I was horrible about following patterns.  No Logic!  Maybe if I wish hard, I can find a sewing machine under the tree.  Or in my stocking!  Then I can experiment with sewing paper!  What Fun!"


There's still over a week to participate in the Sketchbook Challenge.  Check out their blog; there's a great bunch of artists.

Cute! I know what you mean...as artists it's hard to stop the curiosity sometimes! I feel that I'll never get to the end of my things to make and try list!

Love your patterns! So creative. I agree with Nancy about artistic curiosity. I would really love to explore sewing more, but there is only so much time for creative endeavors.

Great patterns! As much as I wish I could, I know that sewing is not for me. I couldn't follow the patterns in junior high either so will just save myself the stress of trying again.
