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.

Review: Talking as Fast as I Can: From Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls

Talking as Fast as I Can: From Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls Talking as Fast as I Can: From Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls by Lauren Graham
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I just love Lauren. She played one of my fav tv moms on Gilmore Girls. I love this candid account of stories from when she was first cast as Lorelai Gilmore to revising the role almost a decade later. Her stories for college years and living in Hollywood had me laughing. One story I loved was her becoming Vegan just so she could impress Ellen DeGeneres... Seriously classic. If you are a fan of Lauren's then you should definitely check this book out.

Art Elements May Themed Challenge Reveal

I know I'm a day late. I was traveling yesterday.  Here is what I came up with..

I had an old windchine that I wanted to spruce up a bit...  So I took it apart and cleaned up the parts and drilled holes in the sea glass I had picked out.

I then wire wrapped the glass and chimes

And here is how it came out.

Thanks for taking a look.. Here are the other participants. Check out what they created.
