I thought I would have more time to get my entry done in time, but the two shows in this month have kicked my tail in getting anything else done. Sorry, but I will have to sit this one out  :(

Okay, everyone, the contest is almost over, which means it's that time again to ask....Do we need to extend the deadline a week? :P We know life can get a little crazy, so if anyone is almost done but could use a couple extra days, please let us know! Otherwise, we'll stick with our original deadline of entries posted by November 1.

I'm soooo sorry guys, life has definitely gotten in the way for me, I forgot to announce the contest. So I went ahead and extended it to 11/15.
Hope everyone doesn't mind, but my world has been upside down literally and I don't want the contest to flop. Thanks for understanding.

I'm gonna use instrumental jazz music as my inspiration, and just listen to itover and over to get the feel for the music, then just make something inspired by that feeling :)



That's how I came up with this!I was listening to Brian Culbertson and it just kinda flowed! 8)

Nice,  it shows:-)

Ok, this is my entry for the music challenge.

Musicians: Ron carter Quartet,
Album title:Piccolo
Track title: Sunshower

I listened to the track several times, tried dancing to it then interpreted the sounds and my movements onto paper and translated the marks I made to leather. It was really fun and I started a second one which I'll post here when its done.

The purse is new too, its partly machine stitched and partly hand stitched, its lined in black pigskin. Its light and soft and strong:-)

I may still get something together and enter, though what I'm seeing here is already kicking my idea's ass.  Still, it's fun.

I hope this is where to list our entries for this one.   All this one needed was a few finishing touches, by time I actually heard about this contest, but the song that inspired this one was playing over and over in my head, especially towards the finished product.  Enjoy  "Sultan of Swing" Dire Straits  assemblage necklace.

Hello!
I had already made an item that adjusts to the contest's requirements, I no longer own that item but I made a blog post about it: http://rasamalai.blogspot.com/p/workshop-at-work-process.html

It's a bookmark inspired by "Pur ti miro" by Claudio Monteverdi, from the opera "l'incoronazione di Poppea"

One of the sweetest love duets I have ever heard, with Philippe Jaroussky's wonderful and touching voice!

You can listen to the song at my blog and watch pictures of the process of making it.
