EBW October 2015 Challenge: "Abstract Painting"


Our challenge theme for October was chosen by the winner of the August team vote Laurie Moravec from WearableArtByLaurie:


"Abstract Painting"

The great thing about abstract painting is that you have a vast range of options. It can represent something real... or not! Any color combination, any style, any texture. Just select a color scheme and create your own masterpiece, make it look as much like you painted it as possible.


Notes to team members: 

This challenge is all about creating your own "painting", please do not copy in full or in part existing works. It is important to include some details of your inspiration for your entry and if you were inspired by a specific artist please mention it in your listing but do not include images of that artist's works as it will constitute copyright infringement. 

Please check the challenge rules to see what details must be in your listing. The entry must be listed in your Etsy shop by October 5th 2015.

EBW August 2015 Challenge "Lost Civilizations"



Edita Kricenaite from RebelSoulEK, the winner of both the team and public votes of our June Challenge, has chosen the theme for August:




Lost Civilizations


"Humanity has seen several legendary civilizations, each of them having a distinctive feature, outlook, religion and artistic expression. Which of them inspires you the most?


Interested in the history of the Indus Valley, Easter Island, Ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia or China? Drawn to mythical Atlantis or Lemuria? Do the lost civilizations of the Mayans, Etruscans or Aztecs hold a fascination for you or perhaps one not mentioned here ... there were so many!


Create a piece of jewelry for an ancient civilization and give a brief description of what inspired you and why." 



Note to team members: Please check the challenge rules to see what details must be in your listing. The entry must be listed in your Etsy shop by August 5th. Happy beading!
