NEW WEEKLY CHALLENGE

Okay, on to this week’s challenge! The word is ‘Shimmer’. Lots of descriptive words spring to mind, such as soft, muted, tremulous, faint, diffused, perhaps even ghostly. I love how light falls on objects to give a mood or atmosphere, perhaps reminiscent of days long gone, a thought barely there. I also love how candle light plays on objects, particularly silky ball gowns, jewels and crystal. You could even develop an idea such as fading love or friendship. I leave it to you!

Our challenge is open to anyone with a blog and open to all artistic mediums; painting, mixed media, jewelry, etc. Simply create something new - even venture outside your comfort zone if you wish - whatever strikes your fancy and fits within this week's theme.

Submissions are due by Sunday 12:00noon EST. Simply post a photo and description of your creations on your blog and come back on this post with a link back to your post. We'll put all the fabulous creations together and show off the final entries this Sunday around 5pm.

Oh and don't forget, we have a new Weekly Challenge Giveaway this month. Take a look at this gorgeous handmade cuff intricately sewn by our lovely Sharon. It’s worth entering just for a chance to win this!
