I haven't forgotten about you! Template 1-Grow a Garden!

So I thought long and hard about what I wanted to do as my next challenge, I didn't want to give you an outline or a string, I didn't want to limit the type of artwork and I didn't want to be doing something that anyone else is.
 I welcome feedback on the idea and I know it seems really simplistic, future ones I'll make a little more detailed but your finished project doesn't NEED to be it can be whatever you want it to be. I hope you like this idea and concept and if you do I'll do more of these, if not, I'll come up with something else!
Please note... There are no prizes for this challenge, but I hope you'll play anyway!

So here is the template for this week.  I call it "Grow a Garden" and this is what it looks like. Please use the link, don't try and print from the pic.

Huh? Is that what you're thinking? Well... ok, a little more info for you. I don't like taking creativity away from people and everyone has their own methods, styles, etc so I wanted to give you something that would force you to incorporate something small into what you are doing while still being "you" in your artwork. So take the template, add to it, using pens, markers, paints, chalk, whatever you want and show me what you've got. Turn it any way you like, there is no right or wrong to this!
Please upload by next Friday.  I'll have mine up probably tomorrow.

OK, here's mine! It's a little chaotic, but I was kind of going for that. It's been that kind of week!


  1. Hey Kelly,
    I just found a link to your blog on Tangle Harmony and I'm so excited to try your challenge! I love opportunities to stretch my imagination and your artwork is very inspirational.

    Thank you so much. I'm going to see if these take off, I hope they do!

  3. Beautiful garden! I had tons of fun with this challenge. I may even get the time to do another.

  4. I got to have a couple of tries, thanks for setting the challenge.

  5. I've missed the deadline but wanted to let you know that I REALLY enjoyed this challenge. I'll be posting my completed challenge on my blog early next week if you would like to stop by and see it.
    Can't wait for the next one!
