happy June, everyone!! It's time to announce this month's Honey Do List Challenge! I hope that you all had a happy and safe Memorial Day weekend and are ready for summer to really get started.
This year, my husband Eric has decided to issue me a design challenge each month to get me out of my comfort zone and to help clear out my bead stash... we're calling it the Honey Do List. I know that I'm not the only one who loves a good design challenge, so I'm inviting folks to play along!
Here is this month's inspiration and what Eric had to say about it: I wanted to use a shot from our recent trip to Oregon for this month's challenge. I took this picture at the Japanese Gardens in Portland, where I noticed the reflection of the ferns on the top of the rippling reflecting pool. I could have stood there watching the koi swim for hours! My gears are already turning... waited several minutes, dodging small children, until a koi happened by--making the shot even more interesting. Take inspiration from the color palette, the fish, the ferns, the water, the clouds--whatever strikes your fancy!
hope you'll play along with me this month!
