Fruit of the Day Roundup: Week 2

 Day 6: Peach

Day 6: Peach

It's that time again! Here is the round up of #CMCFruitOfTheDay week 2. Since I've started this challenge I've been seeing fruit everywhere! I guess i'm just more aware of it:) 

This challenge is proving to be smoother than I thought it'd be. I've always wanted to do a "pattern a day" type of challenge, but never got past thinking about it. I'd start thinking about the end result before even getting started and psyche myself out. My inner critic would pop up and go on a spree of questions/negativity: "What would I draw? I can't keep up with a new pattern EVERY SINGLE DAY...that's crazy! There's no need for all that stress."  When in all actuality this has been an amazing journey for me so far and a chance to experiment. As long as I take it a day at a time and actually remember that this is a time for play then all is well.

I decided to play around with some collage for Day 7 and boy was that a serious arm workout! I made sure to take plenty of breaks haha.

I think Fig and Strawberry are definitely favorites of mine out of this week's patterns. I especially love the contrast of the neon pink gel pen on top of black ink.

So far, day 10 was the only day where I almost decided to forego a fruit post. I really wasn't feeling well, but I pushed through and got the drawing done and the post up.....and then i took a very long nap haha.

Can't wait to see what next week entails! Don't forget you can follow along on Instagram either by following me @CallMeChartreuse or by searching the hashtag #CMCFruitOfTheDay. I've also started showing what tools I used for that day's pattern. I'll be creating proper patterns out of the fan favorites.

p.s. i finally started on the Watson Bra & Bikini Pattern by Cloth Habit...talk about exciting!

Which fruit pattern has been your favorite so far? How do you challenge your creativity?
