This is the picture for the inspiration for the March challenge, as there were so many colours and it seemed disjointed to me my first reaction was to think ‘I’m not entering this month’. However I browsed through the other entries a few days ago and inspiration came along with an urge to do this challenge.
I looked through the lampwork beads I had and found some honey coloured heart shaped beads that reminded me of the deers and in the same box was the flowery lentil bead which had some of colours of the landscape in the picture, all made by Judith Johnston. I then played with several materials and beads and finally came up with some beaded strands to represent the lines in the picture. Finally I added a clasp by Joanne Tinley at Daisychain Designs.
I’ve had the lampwork beads in my stash for some time and have used them separately in other projects but would neve have thought to put them together if it was not for this challenge. So thank you Art Bead Scene for stretching my imagination and making me look more deeply at something which didn’t attract me initially to see many unique possibilities. There seems to be so many layers to this picture that you see something different everytime you look. Below is my creation
What will next month bring?
