Olga of Made by Olga winner of last months "Falling of Leaves" has come up with a great theme for the December challenge. Olga challenges us to "bead to the sound of silence or a bridge over troubled water, you can go look for America or visit the Scarborough fair, tell about your trouble with Cecilia or explain the meaning of life to Mrs Robinson". Mind though - all that should be told in beads!
What is you favorite song of Simon and Garfunkel? I am very curious to see what can these two amazing artists inspire you to make!
Time to get your MOJO going for this great December theme "Simon and Garfunkel - The Songs of Inspiration". You may start your entry today and list in your Etsy shop by midnight December 5th, 2010.
Any EBW member may create one new beadweaving of your own design (not from a kit, book, magazine, or class) in response to the challenge theme. You work should be entirely beadwoven, or have a substantially woven component, to feature and promote our art form. You may not renew an existing piece. Members are expected to participate in challenges when possible, and required to do so once each year. Start the weaving anytime after the theme is announced. Complete and list the work for sale on Etsy by the 5th of the month of the challenge, before midnight Etsy time. Your listing date is proof you entered by the deadline, so DO NOT RENEW your work until after the voting poll opens on the 9th. If your listing sells, you can still participate in the challenge, but please alert the moderators to the sale.
