This is a new feature on my blog which I will post weekly, usually on Mondays, called Be Inspired. I am starting this one a little early so that I can complete my orange blog writing assignment for the Etsy Blogger Street Team and I also wanted to try out the this new blog feature, Leafletter. The inspiration may be a color, a color combination, a specific subject, shape, texture, etc. I will also try to include keywords connected to the theme that may help trigger inspiration.
If you are inspired to create something from one of the Be Inspired features, please send a picture and description to my e-mail, firstname.lastname@example.org and I may feature you on my blog. The piece must be inspired by the Be Inspired post and cannot be an item created prior to the posting. If your Be Inspired piece is featured, I will send you a free pendant from my etsy shop (I will choose the pendant and it will be a surprise).
This week's inspiration, is the color orange. It has never been one of my favorite colors, but I have grown to appreciate it as I continue to grow artistically. I think I was intimidated by it's boldness, and I wasn't very comfortable combining it with other colors. Most recently I have combined it with bright pink and brown, and have finally found a soft spot for orange in my heart. So, be inspired by the color orange and take some time this week to use a little orange in your creations. You may be surprised by it's versatility!
