Inktober: Mosaics, positivity + ribbons

A challenge is whatever you want to make of it -- use the core rules of the challenge as your starting point and off you go.

The best thing about a global challenge is that wave of positive energy that flows throughout the creative community on instagram and FB. Seeing so much art inspires us to re-focus on our own art-making. There are a heck of a lot of people drawing and mark-making and playing with ink. I'm not trying to be woo-woo about it -- but each day I look forward to yummy art in my insta-feed! It's lovely to discover new artists and new ideas. What clever things will you devise? That goes round and round. Go to Inktober 2017 No. 1 to see the full series.
