Scarlett has launched her SECOND "Use the Muse" beading contest and I'm delighted to say that I've signed up for this experience again. I hope, as always, to do the bead-kit justice, and I know if nothing else that I'll grow personally from the challenge of working with a palette of beads AND some unusual items that I would not put together myself.
Although I participated in the first Use the Muse contest, I did not manage to earn any of the lovely prizes. The talent exhibited was tremendous and I still stand in awe of much of the work submitted. You can still see those entries on Scarlett's website! However, even now, I am very proud of the piece I made and am happy enough to have met the challenge and given it my best shot at that time. I hope to do the same this time around. The prizes for this contest are just amazing and I'm SO looking forward to seeing -- once again -- how everyone handles their bead-kit.
It is just amazing how so many people can receive the very same set of beads etc. and yet turn out such diverse projects! This is half the fun. I know that once again the "Muse" piece is something I've never used in previous projects and I've not yet incorporated ribbon either in any of my work to date. I'm BOUND to have fun with this one!
I grew in confidence and in ability in taking on the first Muse contest and so would most certainly encourage anyone even thinking about taking this on, to just jump in and DO it! There's still plenty of time to enter! Surprise yourself!!
