Welcome to the Summer Colour Inspiration challenge, hosted by Sharyl McMillian-Nelson. My apologies to Sharyl for being a day late with this, I think I took on too much this week with 3 challenges in a row! Anyway, I got here in the end.
Sharyl provided us with a beautiful set of floral photos to use as inspiration for the challenge, asking us to pick one for our inspiration. I picked number 7, a beautiful combination of deep fuschia pinks and violet, with a touch of lime green foliage.
I had a few strands of glass and dyed stone beads in pinks and greens that I wanted to use, and while digging through my art beads I came across a gorgeous boho polymer clay owl made by Martha Eason of Menagerie Studios in just the right shades. With so many bright colours, simple seemed best so I strung a repeated sequence of beads and added some sari silk woven through the chain.
Thank you for the challenge Sharyl, I loved the colours I had to choose from! And here are the other participants:
