So, in order to expand on the variety of food we have available, the last couple of weeks have been filled with making passata, salsa, apple pie filling, preserving pears, drying chillies - a big job in order to put away as much as I can whilst the summer crops are still producing. Then, when that winds down, lemon season will be in full swing! I LOVE lemon season. I've already made my first batch of lemon cordial and lemon curd. yum.
The challenge! This month's UMT Diva Challenge is a pattern designed by one of my most favourite tanglers, LeeAnn I love, love her gorgeous organic tangles so it was a thrill to work with one of her patterns.
Since I haven't done a geometric/fantasy/trumpet style drawing for a while, I decided to play with tuxedo on a ball shape and went from there. I've taken a picture prior to shading so that you can see the contrast with the final result. It could probably do with a bit more depth in the shading but I got a bit bored with it so declared it officially done! lol.
After Shading - I decided to extend the pattern from the top right trumpet further along the stem as it looked a bit unfinished where I previously ended it.
Back out to the garden to do a bit of tomato pruning......
Have a great weekend!
