Hi Guys, Happy Weekend!! I found a wonderful and new to me challenge blog. Esty Inspired is a challenge blog that uses art to inspire art!! How cool is that? They select an Etsy store and feature it on their blog. The challenge is to visit that store, select something that inspires you and create something. Then share it on their blog. How fun!!
The store this week is Nanny's Room featuring an Arizona artist who primarily uses watercolor and colored pencils to create her paintings. Just beautiful!! These paintings are also sold as jewelry. Who doesn't love some bling? And handmade at that!!
So here is the item I chose to be my inspiration.
I don't normally select flowers to be in my creations. But this was so beautiful it inspired me to not only put 1 flower... but several!! Here is my inspiration piece.
The leaves were placed in to mimic the greenery in her painting. Pink was chosen as the color I picked out of the painting to use on my card. I love the pink in the rope/ribbon of the necklace. If you are looking for a fun challenge check out the EtsyInspired Challenge blog.
Thanks for stopping by today! Wishes for a great weekend.
