And if I showed you now, A. it wouldn't be finished, and B. Erin Prais-Hintz writer of Treasures Found blog would probably come right to my house, string me up by my toenails and dress me in orange! Not that there's anything wrong with orange... after all "Orange" season starts this weekend (aka the opening of hunting season.)
Erin has organized her 2nd annual color challenge. She collaborated with Jessica of Design Seeds out of Madison, WI and has given each participant their very own color palette to design with. We chose our main color and the rest was a surprise. (Side Note: If you go to Design Seeds website, you can sign up for their daily e-mail of new color palettes. I did and I LOVE getting that e-mail in the morning!)
I told Erin, surprise me - and boy did she ever! I told her I had stash in everything except red, orange or yellow. Beyond that I was open to the challenge.... and can I say, I LOVE my color palette! I would never have put all 5 of these colors together, but seeing them on paper... then creating with them, it has been helping me venture into a whole new area of creativity.
So not only am I playing with fun colors (and I'll spill just a hint, my main color is brown... but that's all I'm sayin!) I'm also designing something that I've NEVER made before!!! Yes I'm challenging myself beyond what I've ever done and I feel so liberated! Okay, I can hear Erin, I think she's on my shoulder saying, "Dawn, enough... don't say any more. It's supposed to be a surprise." I know, I know... I'm just excited at where this journey is taking me!
Enough babble! I'm off to bead!
Have a beadiful day!
