Simon Sez: Trees!

This week’s Simon is Robin McGee and he wants to see trees.  He has very simple instructions:

“Draw, print, or in what ever art form you like make me a tree! Or more than one! Any media, whatever technique, it’s all good.”

You have until the 24th on this one,  so there is plenty of time to create a forest on the EBSQ Forum.

EBSQ Challenge Update

The Holiday Jewelery Challenge is ready for your entries so gather the holiday detritus and get creative.  Need more info? Just scroll down…

Holiday Repurposed Jewelry Challenge is open and will run until January 25th.

Make a piece of jewelry out of “Holiday Junk”, something that would normally get tossed out!!! Wrapping paper, tinsel, bows/ribbons, a broken ornament, burnt out holiday light, that stale candy cane that’s been in your wrapping paper tub for 15 years, holiday cards, pieces of your broken Menorah that you just can’t bear to toss, wood from the dying Yule Tree, well, you get the idea.

The jewelry has to be made from at least 70% Repurposed Holiday “Junk”. This gives room for you to use jewelry wire/clasps if you like, but the more of it that is repurposed, the better!!!

The Challenge includes a prize!!!!!

——

This challenge will be running in the Artist Made Jewelry topic in the Art Specific Topics section of the EBSQ Forum.

You can find all the information current EBSQ Challenges as well as the weekly Simon Sez by checking the Challenge Central topic on the forum. It’s where everything that’s going on can be found.
