ZNetShows Summer Blog Hop Reveal!

Creative Spark Summer 2014It's time for the reveal of the summer challenge from ZnetShows! Also, the new issue of the Creative Spark magazine is available, so be sure to check that out. There's also a list of the blog hop participants below, so be sure to check out the work from the rest of the ZnetShows.com design team. :D

The theme this time for the challenge was Summer Days and Summer Nights. Just as a quick refresher, the beads that I received from ZnetShows for this particular are in this blog post. I got to choose two of the colors and I went with periwinkle changes and moonstone opal, both of which are totally divine. If you love color-shift stones and glass like labradorite and sea opal, you will love these colors, too!

Anyhow, without further delay, here's what I created:

Summer Days
My daytime design is called "Butterfly Garden." Summers for me, especially as a child, have always been spent in Oklahoma helping my grandparents with their flower gardens while chasing butterflies.





Summer Nights
My evening design is called "Moonlit Path." While summer days were spent chasing bugs and picking flowers, evenings were for stargazing with my dad. I love being outside of city limits on a clear summer evening to watch the moon rise. It's always so dark you can see the Milky Way itself.





That's it for my designs. Be sure to check out all the awesome designers listed below! While you're at it, stop by the ZnetShows blog, too! ♥

Much love,

  2. Your pieces for this hop are wonderful. The metal with the green looks great and also reminds me of my summer childhoods out in the yard picking flowers and catching lightening bugs. But your nighttime pieces are so lovely! I can see why you picked those colors. It looks like the most beautiful sunset.
