August Monthly Challenge Recap



The color of the inspiration painting by Anne Redpath are bright without being saturated. The subject matter makes me think of both far off places (the ornate rug) and comforting spaces (the red slippers). Let's see what inspired you for this month!


For my own homage to this lovely painting, I created what I am calling "Magic Carpet Ride" pendants. These 2" x 3/4" connectors have sort of an off-kilter glimpse of an ornate rug, as a nod to the perspective and colors. I mixed different patterns, from botanicals to architectural for these and made them in three different metals (gold, silver and copper) and each one is different - a mystery flying its way to you with dreams and wishes come true! These are the pendants that my subscribers to the Simple Truths Sampler Club received for August. I just added these to my website (just in case you are interested!).

I loved this month's artwork and it's so cool to see what everyone has created. I just got my "Magic Carpet Ride" pendant in the mail yesterday and I just swooned when I saw it. You have so much talent and creativity and I look forward to seeing what you have dreamed up each month! Have a wonderful weekend!

The work chosen this month really was an inspiration. I loved seeing what everyone has come up with and your pendants are gorgeous. I am working on convincing the hubby that I want a subscription to your club for Yule.
