Art Elements Theme Challenge for June - Sunflowers Reveal






     I can not even believe it is the end of June already..... It's been one crazy and busy month. I wanted to join in on June's Art Elements theme challenge.  Susan picked this months theme of Sunflowers.  One of my favorite flowers. I just love the brightness of the colors.

      One thing that is pretty cool in my area is a Sunflower Maze.  If you are ever in the Fresno area, you will be A-Mazed!!! The Sunflower Maze in Centerville is so much fun and it’s Free! Location: 16155 E. Kings Canyon., Sanger.
Parking is at the Centerville Fruit Stand.







     I really wanted to get more done than just this... But, this month just flew right by. Literally.  Here is a pair of earrings I made for the challenge.


     I took some cultured sea glass, patina'd washers and wire wrapped them with some sea glass I had found in Monterey, California at the beginning of the year.  I did texture the washers and then applied the patina.  I like how these came out.  I just have not added the ear wires yet.  But I did finish them..

     I also started this pair but as you can see, I did not get very far in putting them together.. lol  This is my first attempt at using the tin from a soda pop can, adding some patina and then adding the yellow beads to them.



     Thanks for stopping by and here is a list of the other participants.  Make sure to stop by and check out their beautiful creations.

  1. The sunflower maze just looks so amazing! It must be wonderful to see it in real life! Your earring pair is lovely and I especially like how you treated the textured surface of the washer! Time can really fly fast and it is somehow surreal that this year is already halfway through!

    1. Ya the patina was the only thing I had available and it seems to be holding up. I will blog about the final results on that pair.

  11. I never would have thought of adding sea glass to a sunflower challenge - but that's what so great about these challenges. Everyone brings their unique vision to the theme. Great designs.

  13. Oh my I would love to visit that maze! When I was little we lived in Holland and I remember moving into the house and my mother being so upset because the garden was beautiful but inaccessible to all but small children because the grass area was completely surround by sunflowers! Your ear rings just embody those sunflowers in my memory.
