Sorry to be posting this so late but I've been more than a bit behind with preparations for this past weekend's big art show, the Art Wander. In all honesty, I was a little concerned about getting anything finished for this month's Honey Do List challenge! I had some lofty plans that didn't quite come to fruition (yet... I hope to do an update by the end of the weekend) but I am pretty happy with what I did manage to get done today. Anyway, enough excuses, onto the main event!
This year, my husband Eric has decided to issue me a design challenge each month to get me out of my comfort zone and to help clear out my bead stash... we're calling it the Honey Do List. I know that I'm not the only one who loves a good design challenge, so I'm inviting folks to play along!
Here's this month's inspiration and what Eric had to say about it:
I struggled a bit this month to find something suitable. I've been focused more on organic and nature shots for this challenge so I figured I'd go more urban and abstract for a change! This shot comes from the outside "patio" area of a nightclub in Nordeast Minneapolis that I discovered on a recent trip out to Indeed Brewing. I was struck by the rusted metal with faded and overlapped spray paint. Good luck!
I ended up choosing a pendant and earring charm set from Erin Prais-Hintz of Tesori Trovati that she made for her Simple Truths Sampler Club this April. I thought the colors and the sort of chaotic movement that she achieved in the pendant really worked for the graffiti art that Eric chose for us. I used Czech glass and faceted, rough pyrite nuggets to pull out some of the colors in the pendant and charms.
