Challenge #288 … “Simply Gourdgeous”

The Diva Challenge this week was to use the Zentangle pattern, “Gourdgeous”, a perfect pattern for Autumn.  I taught a pattern class last weekend and this was one of the patterns I introduced to the students.  I had to assure them that it takes a little practice to get the shaping right, but that all gourds are not created equal!

My whole life, October 1st has been my favorite day of the year.  Living by the water, I see a difference in the colors and smells around me … it just feels “fresh”.  Could it also be because my birthday is this month and I think we gravitate to the season in which we were born?  Scorpios rule!

And, because I love Fall, this challenge was a fun one for me.
