Octobers' Creative Challenge- Patterns

Welcome to our monthly blog challenge!
A big thank you to everyone who joined in last month's challenge. We had some gorgeous creations, and I will be announcing the winner of September's challenge in the next couple of days.
This month the challenge theme is Patterns

You can interpret it any way you like, as long as there is rubber stamping in it.

To join in with this challenge (we are limiting the challenge entries to 3 per person), is simple; all we would like you to do is, make a piece of artwork, making sure that you include the theme and some rubber stamping. Pop back here to link up using the Inklinkz at the bottom of this post, so that we can see what you've made and then, leave us a comment to let us know you have joined in with the challenge.
 As always, there will be candy for one randomly picked entrant - the winner will receive a stamp of their choice from The Artistic Stamper

In addition, you can enter the same challenge on Facebook!  

To join us on just go to our new Facebook group, and send us a request to join..  There will be a prize for the Facebook challenge, as well as the blog challenge!

And don't forget....if you use The Artistic Stamper stamps on your entry, you will entered into the draw, twice!

Here is some creativity for you from the Creative Team to help you get started....

I have used Distress crayons for basis of my project, they are great for building up colour and applied them through a selection of Artistic stamper masks.  Then using the ornate flourish 1 stamps and one of the background stamps from the Family values plate

The support of my project is a soda can I have crushed and colored with alcohol inks.
Then I have sticked 3 times the same mushroom from the Mushroom Plate I designed for The Artistic Stamper, and also the word "inspire" from Framed Words #1
This can is actually a mailart I have sent to a friend of mine.
I had already created the background on these altered book pages, and just added a pattern through Lesley's pattern mask with PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Paints. I stamped  a calligraphy mat through it with archival ink. Finally I added dots of paint on the pattern. 

We hope that you will join in this month's challenge, and also join us on Facebook too.We look forward to seeing your creations. Don't forget to add a comment when you have posted your entry.

Have a creative month

Beautiful abstract patterns! Lovely colors in Debs tag, and a magical scene in Titbesoeur's creation. Jennie's creation reminds me of batik dyed fabric and gorgeously designed tiles! Two different arts, but glorious! Thanks for the fun patterns challenge.
