AJC 2011 September Adventure Quest: ZENTANGLE MANDALA
Our Canadian Thanksgiving (October 10) is fast approaching and with it comes my favourite Season, Autumn.
Bountiful and beautiful squashes of all types and colours (including BLUE pumpkins!) are popping up in the stores, tumbling out of bins, enticing me to buy whole armloads for the table setting.
I had taken this photo of a group of Squashes in my local Safeway and put it away in my picture folio thinking it might make a nice Autumn card.
Then the Muse tapped me on the shoulder and said, ‘why don’t you ‘tangle’ them? One squash is already a perfect mandala shape.’
So I printed it out on matte photo paper, sat in front of the tv and went through at least half a dozen sharpie fine point pens.
In my Squash*Tang*Ala, you may notice one section that is different: I call that the Path Outwards.
It may not be a perfect mandala because of that, but I have learned this year to ‘embrace my imperfections!’ (g)
Harvest Blessings to you all!
