Creative Challenge September 5

The creative possibilities this week are practically limitless, 
because the challenge theme is
Patterns
link
 So many patterns found in nature...
 I'm in awe of the leopard's spots!

link
And the trunk of a tree holds secrets we can only guess at.

link
 Art-y patterns coming straight from the imagination are fabulous!

link
link
I love the colors! 

Checks with florals?
Paisley with polka dots?
Awesome!
Mom must have been wrong when she said
don't wear stripes with plaids.

link
Use your imagination to create a pattern never seen before,
or combine your favorite patterns in a new way.
Any medium you like is welcome!

link
Above all, have fun!
Come back here by Sunday September 11
to post a link to your creation.
Guidelines are in the right sidebar.

 Remember, your entry gives you one chance
in the prize drawing, soon to be announced
for the months of September-October.

Get pattern-happy, no matter what mom said!
