Yes, I’m on track this month!! Louise’s creative color challenge for the month of October was what she referred to as “natural tones” – specifically wood, and adding a pattern such as woodgrain.
At first, I thought I would make something from the remaining pieces of boxwood that I have left over from my “Knock on Wood” necklace. I did hum and haw for awhile, and think up a couple of nice ideas – but I was feeling pressed for time due to my upcoming open studio. The designs I thought of would have taken more time than I had, to test first, and then make.
I realized I was putting unrealistic pressure on myself (for a fun challenge), and that I had a perfectly good design already sketched out for both woodgrain and a natural toned jasper cabochan from my collection! What luck!
So, with out further ado – I made it:
As usual, I’m looking forward to Louise’s next challenge! Although, the challenge might be fitting it in to the schedule!
Hope you are keeping dry on this rainy day (Ontario is feeling like Vancouver Island…)
