Bye bye June .... it was grand!

June .... a month of inspiration, celebration, observation, illustration and pattern!!! 

First, my eldest turned 18!!! graduated high school and is heading to college?!?!

a show featuring: Maryjean Viano Crowe, Lesia Sochor and yours truly!

 I received samples of an illustration job and loved seeing my work on a product! 

Also sampled more of my wares from society6 !! I have been SO happy 
with the quality of each product that I have received, I have been adding more and more designs, so make sure you check out my society6 shop!!

And I wrapped up June by throwing my hat into the ring to win
a scholarship to Jessica Swift's patterncamp ...

The contestants were given 3 rounds of pattern challenges ~

round1: find patterns in nature 
round 2: find patterns around the house 

round 3: make a pattern out of objects around the house. 

for this round I discovered repeating the pattern in my iPhone app, layout, and I went a bit crazy!!! 

 And I won!!!  
I won a space in @patterncamp!!!! 
 and was reminded how much I love/think/live pattern!!!
note the pattern on the vessel that I create for
 the window display I did for Renew Arts & Industry ... 

And now on to July!!!
Thank u for sharing this wonderful month with me!!!
