Well, thats a mouthfull! Lorelei had a great giveaway awhile ago, and picked 23 lucky people to create something with a C-koop Shadow box that she sent us. Then, we'd have a blog hop to see what everyone made. Today is that day! Aren't those boxes just great? Her enamel work, though the colors are bright, is very organic, and I just love it.
I got a little orance square box with one hole at the top. Now, I don't do much pendant style stuff, and I was really hoping to NOT get orange....my brain just doesn't design in bright colors. But the box and the enamel is so awesome, that I fell in love with my little box anyway. Turns out, I can do bright, and still keep it rustic too. I think that is what I am so drawn to in these sort of challenges, is that, it makes me go outside of my comfort zone, and problem solve. I get to take something that baffles me, and figure out how to make it mine.
This is what I figured...............
Now hop on over to the other blogs to see what they made with them. I know I am, just as soon as I have some coffee!
