voting for the August EBW challenge

Voting is up and running for the August EBW Challenge Hot Hot Hot!  Voting takes place on the EBW blog through August 15.  If you can't see all of the entries, head over here.  The mosaic is clickable.  Please check out all of the entries and vote for your favorite.

Some of you may remember that the July Challenge was Tangerine Tango.  I participated with this bright orange bangle.  It was amazing to create this vivid piece, but I wasn't feeling inspired to work with this palette again so shortly.  This is the first challenge I've skipped in months, and it's a little surreal, but I'll be back to participate in another challenge this year I'm sure.

Of course there are still lots of amazing entries for Hot Hot Hot.  If they won't inspire you for the end of summer, I don't know what will.  Here are just a few of my favorites.

  3. Beautiful pieces! You remind me...I still haven't gotten anything together for the BBA challenge this month. I know what I'm doing, but just have to sit down and get to it!

  4. All of them are real artworks! However I like Peacock Embroidery the most.

  5. I'm always so amazed with this team's work! I love the twisted herringbone piece and the peppers are perfect for the theme :)
