‘Tis the season for hayrides, hot cider and everyone’s favorite spiced latte. From trips to the pumpkin patch to the beauty from the changing colors of the leaves, we are falling for Autumn! For this week’s challenge, create a repeating design inspired by the cozy fall season upon us.


Overview

What do you get when you combine the harvest season, sushi that’s just too cute to eat and an artistic technique that’s spot on? The September design challenge themes, of course! This month’s themes will require you to pull out your design toolbox and show us how you celebrate the season! Are you ready for the challenge?
