3rd Annual Challenge of Color Blog Hop Reveal!


My Process:  Waited until the last minute.
Date Started:  29 November 2012
Date Finished:  29 Nov 2012, 1am

The Challenge:

  • Erin Prais-Hintz sent two random and completely different palettes from the curated pool of 40 that Brandi Hussey created inspired by the USGS Earth As Art landsat images.
    • Here are the images I was to chose from:

  • Each participant was asked to choose which palette you would like to use.  
    • I chose the top pallet called Parana River Delta.
  • Create an accessory of your choice that evokes the colors and patterns. Any accessory is applicable.  Art beads are encouraged, but are not required.  I was not required to buy anything new, so I used up some of my stash.
    • Due to time constraints, I went went with earrings.  I used the Vintaj Patinas on metal disks and added tiny lampwork rondelles.  Not bad.

  • Mark Your Calendars: Blog Hop on Friday, November 30th. Please share your palette(s) and your creation. Share your design process. Or what inspired you about this process. 
    • OMG...So soon!
  • Above all, have fun! This is not meant to stress you out. If you are not having fun, you aren't doing it right. ;-)
    • Here are my ear rings all completed:

Thank you Erin for hosting the challenge/blog hop and Brandi for the inspiration pallets!  Now, don't forget to visit the other participant blogs to see the pallets they chose as well as their designs.
