Last week's Creative Challenge
Last week's creative challenge on Etsy was a color challenge to use Lipstick Red. Well, this gave me the hardest time. Even after I had the idea it was a struggle all the way through! The above is the finished result and believe me, this week, I got by with a little help from my friends.
I enjoy trying to find different ideas for aceos-which in case you are not familiar are mini pieces of art that measure 2 1/2" by 3 1/2". For this piece I took heavy gauge copper wire and formed it into the correct size. I wove the whole thing with red and variegated red craft thread-which took awhile. I attached a felt free-form volcano, and then asked for lots of suggestions from my wonderful challenge friends. Their suggestions enabled me to finish it without stressing out too much. It will be available in my Etsy shop later today.
Hope you have a great day!
