    Woah, these last few days have been busier than I expected - so sad, I thought I'd get to play a bit more!
    Here is what I've been able to get done in my little pockets of spare time:

    2020 August a-thon Home Sweet Home.jpg
    Image from an adult colouring book - scanned, resized, printed on craft paper, then coloured using coloured pencils. This is one of the ones for challenge 1... it's been hanging around in my "unfinished" box for well over 2 years. ^^

    2020 August a-thon Bouquet.jpg
    Another image from an adult colouring book, this time printed on white paper and coloured with alcohol markers. Also years old and unfinished, as I had coloured in the yellow centers of the flowers and realised that the markers bled on this paper. Now I carefully worked around that problem... and fixed the rest with white gel pen.

    2020 August a-thon Love.jpg
    I browsed through my favourite old encyclopedia for inspiration and found this painting, a self-portrait of the artist with her daughter. I loved the connection between them, the closeness. <3 This didn't scan too well, the little flowers and hearts are more vibrant in person.

    2020 August a-thon Tangled Shroom.jpg
    Not too sure how I feel about this - I wanted to use my acrylic POSCA pens for tangling, but the paper was all wrong for the pens. :S They were also broader than I had expected, so they didn't allow for the type of precision or detail I usually like to give my tangles. But, challenge 2, zentangle!

    I'll see what Sunday evening brings, maybe I'll be back with more later. Currently I feel like getting back into bed... it has been properly summer for the last couple weeks but the weather has turned and brought us autumn-esque storms and rain, and I just want to curl up with a mug of tea and a good book. ^^ I hope I can find some inspiration later.
    Hugs, Sarah

    I am just horrified by the California forest fires, especially at Big Basin Redwood State Park, California, where I often picnicked with my family as a child.

    I really want to remember Big Basin Redwoods State Park as it was when I was a child

    Attachment 217693 ATART 13 Walking Among the Giants

    Attachment 217694 ATART 14 Trail Among the Redwoods

    Attachment 217695 ATART 15 Sempervirens Waterfall along Sequoia Trail

    Attachment 217696 ATART 16 Redwood Leaves and Cone (Sequoia sempervirens)

    Attachment 217697 ATART 17 Banana Slug feeding on leaf. Banana slugs are often found in redwood forests. I can remember from Girl Scout camp finding a banana slug on the outhouse toilet seat. My friends and I spit toothpaste on it until it shriveled up and died!

    I agree with you, Jo - horrified at what's happening and terrified at what's going to happen to our home state (I will always consider California my home, even though it's been 14 years since I lived there). As I look out the window right now, the smoke from all the fires is drifting into southern Oregon's Rogue Valley, giving me a headache, runny nose, and cough.

    And here you've captured the beauty yet horror of it all in your paintings. Well done!

    I haven't been productive today. My daughter is clearly getting sick. That takes all my time.

    So sorry to hear your daughter isn't feeling well, Sanna. I hope she recovers quickly and that you don't get sick.

    I have marked my "France" card as a traded but I cannot find a PM where someone would ask for a trade. Anyone? I have written down all other traded cards, with whom I have traded and when we have agreed to trade etc.

    Feeling poorly, is on the form from my doctor I am seeing Wednesday. I thought of feeling poorly as a southern term or a British term. It made me chuckle. Of course I checked that box. Now I wonder if I admitted to have some illness I dont understand.

    hmmm google had a lot to say, but I didnt not in general indicate some odd disease.
