Check out the entries in the June Calendar and Art Deco challenges!

June was quite a busy month for the Beaddreamz group! Two challenges came to a close on June 30.

Our ongoing calendar challenge saw eight entries for June. A wide variety of techniques were shown, including triangle weave, freeform, and peyote. There were also two very striking entries that demonstrated bead embroidery. Once again, group members will have a difficult time choosing the favorite for June. The poll, which can be found here, will close on July 10. Members, be sure and vote! Here's a look at the June Calendar Challenge entries:

There were also eight entries in the Art Deco challenge. Members did a great job creating very diverse pieces showcasing the Art Deco era. Wikipedia defines Art Deco as "a popular international art design movement from 1925 until the 1940s, affecting the decorative arts such as architecture, interior design, and industrial design, as well as the visual arts such as fashion, painting, the graphic arts, and film. At the time, this style was seen as elegant, glamorous, functional, and modern." Their very informative Art Deco page can be found here.

Group members, don't forget to vote for the Art Deco favorite in the poll, which also closes on July 10. You can take a look at the gorgeous entries here:

Thanks to everyone who participated!
