I have a challenge for you! Here's the scoop: I pulled out some beads and cord in some of my favorite colors a while back when I was feeling a little low (that's them in the photo above). I chose some neutral tan and ecru along with teal and turquoise, then added a bit of bronze for depth. The color palette is soothing and beachy and perfect for summer (or any time you want to pretend it's summer).
Using different combinations of the colors and different patterns, I'm up to around sixteen pieces of micro macrame jewelry inspired by this palette (you can see more of them on my blog at www.KnotJustMacrame.com if you're interested).
Some pieces are fussier and some just scream "relaxing on the beach".
Lately I've been messing more with the neutral part of the palette:
So what's the challenge? I want to see what you make inspired by this photo:
Here are the details: make something inspired by the photo. It can be jewelry, sculpture, a painting - anything. Heck, decorate a cake! Make a quilt! Anything handmade. Share a photo of your creation with me by June 15, 2016. I will put together a post with photos from everyone so you can see what fun things everyone comes up with. If you'd like, do a blog post and send the link with your photo and I'll include that, too. Please send photos to me through my business Facebook page (so I don't miss something in that mysterious "other" folder) or via email.
