So I'd like to invite you join me in a fun new venture, beginning today: Inspired Design Challenge! On the 1st and 15th of each month, I will post a photo and during the time period in between, I would like to challenge you and myself to create one finished design or set of something based on how it inspired you. Your creative inspiration can come from the colors, textures, subject matter, or even the feeling or memory that you received when you first saw it. And anything goes—it doesn't matter if you like to work in glass like me, or prefer a different medium like clay or paint. I would love to see a variety of results, ranging from jewelry, wall art, cards, clothing, doodles—whatever your Muse jumps in and delights your heart with!
Here's the Challenge No. 1 photo, full of delicious Springtime colors from one of my favorite sources, the Design Seeds website:
All I ask is that you keep your designs to a decent subject matter (i.e. no provocative artwork) and nothing politically motivated. Post a link to your finished project as soon as you can in a comment after this post and throughout the active working time of this Challenge I will share them on my Facebook page HERE, my Pinterest board HERE, or on the next Challenge announcement blog post.
Please post ONE photo and link to your project(s) by Thursday, June 13th. And don't forget to include what materials you used and how the photo inspired you.
I'm hoping that this will become something we will all look forward to each week and have a lot of fun sharing together. So let the creative sparks fly! *Ü*
