One Crayon Color Challenge: Pollyanna Yellow
Hello and welcome to my stop on the One Crayon Color Challenge Blog Hop! This is hosted by the wonderfully warm and talented Sally Russick of The Studio Sublime.
Our mission was to design in a monochromatic color scheme.. my crayon challenge? Yellow! Yellow is a challenge color for me and that is for certain. I love it, but am usually a bit hesitant to use it. Why? Perhaps because it is so powerful. It is the color of sun, joy, warmth, smiles, laughter, energy... or at least for me it is Gladness is yellow, I am certain of it, and that is why my set of bracelets are named after Miss Pollyanna herself
Why bracelets? Because I am a bracelet addict these days, I love them. I love to mix, match, stack, play... I was sad when I realized I didn't have any sari silk to add to these (another addiction of mine lol). This set is full of gemstones (lemon quartz, honey jade, and citrine chips) with a handful of czech glass and a crazy attempt at a steam punk focal that I made.
I have been preparing for a craft fair (which is tomorrow... or today, depending on where you are lol) and am a bit behind on just about everything. I had big plans to make a matching necklace and earrings.. but alas, no time. So I may just have to do those in the next little while post show and put them up :). Thank you so much to Sally for organizing this, you are amazing! So go on, go see what the other crayon hoppers have pulled out of the old crayon box :)
