The July Challenge

Welcome to the July challenge! This month the theme is ON THE BEACH. What does being on the beach (or at the seaside!) mean to you? Is it family fun with colourful beach balls and kites, relaxing on the sand under an umbrella, swimming in the sea, or collecting pebbles and looking for crabs and starfish? Do you love the colours, the blues and browns and seaweed greens? Whatever it means to you, try to capture the essence of the beach/seaside in your piece.



THE PRIZE:
This month our sponsor is Davida and she's offering £15 to spend in her online shop Old Bicycle Shop!

HOW TO ENTER:
Simply email a photograph of your entry to Liz at ottbs@live.com along with any other info we have asked for. The challenge runs until Midnight on Friday the 31st of July and the winner is drawn and announced the following day. You can email your entry at any time during the month. The challenge is open to beaders worldwide.
