Down by the River Is a Winner!

Marsha Neal Studio Silk Color Palette, Twelve Round 2 Finalists Palettes
I entered Marsha Neal's Silk Color challenge, and I am thrilled to say that the silks that I selected came in third place. I picked 9 colors that were inspired by a recent trip to the southwest. While there I took an amazing train ride from Durango, Colorado to Silverton, Colorado. This trip followed a beautiful green river through the mountains. My design using Marsha's new colors is called "Down by the River" and is inspired by this train ride.  It is the third palette from the left in the photo above.   I want to thank all who voted especially those who voted for me.  I look forward to creating some jewelry with these gorgeous silks.

And so on...

What does Marsha have planned for her participants?
1. Purchase silk knot bundles for projects, giveaways, promotions, etc.
2. Create and photograph projects using these silk palettes (round 1 and 2 all apply).
3. Blog or share those photographs about the projects and your inspirations.
4. I will be hosting some design challenges/ blog hops around things you make with these silks so you can show off your stuff!Those of you who love silk ribbons and who doesn't you might want to join the fun.

What do you think I will create?  I am thinking that I may want to use some of the sea glass that I have been hoarding since my Christmas trip to Isa Mujeres, Mexico where I picked up lots just outside of our house.
