Hair bow/hair flower challenge: A June wedding!
My husband and I got married on June 15, fifteen years ago! Does that mean it's a "golden" anniversary, so I won't have to wait for the 50-year golden anniversary? LOL! Anyway, it gave me an idea for our bow challenge!
The theme for this second challenge is "A June Wedding." You may make a boutique bow or bow set, a headband, a bowband, a funky loopy bow, a fascinator, a hair flower -- basically, anything you've fashioned out of ribbon or fabric -- following this theme. What do you think of when you think about June weddings? Use your imagination! :) It can be about the wedding, or about the honeymoon, or anything that reminds you of June weddings.
There will be two prizes this time! The first will be a "Judge's Choice" Award. Our judge is the very talented Kimberly of Cali's Charm. Kimberly is the group leader of the Bowfairies, a fantastic group of bowmakers, and Kimberly is skilled with all different types of accessories. Knowing her, she'll be looking for symmetrical loops, great colors and top-notch presentation. The winner of the Judge's Choice award will receive a $15 gift certificate from The Ribbon Retreat!
The second way to win a prize is through "Voter's Choice," just like last time! I'll put all the bows on the blog and will host a poll in the sidebar, beginning Wednesday, June 8. Invite your friends and relatives to vote for your bow! The winner of the Voter's Choice Award will receive your choice of either a selection of unused ribbons and notions from my personal stash, or FREE e-book from Birdsong Bows and Patterns.
To enter, E-mail your best photograph of your finished product (either on a model or not) to me at deanna [at] birdsongbows.com by 3 a.m. Pacific time (midnight Eastern) on Tuesday, June 6 (so, basically before you go to bed Monday night). Please keep your photos around 600 pixels wide, so that they're neither too big nor too small. No more than one entry/photo per contestant, please. If you're on Flickr, feel free to post a photo to the Birdsong Flickr Photo Group as well, for all to see!
Good luck! I can't wait to see your entries. :)
Thank you to Christi Nelson of Rawsii for the gorgeous photo!
