Let me give you a brief history of the CC7A. It was started by Alicia of All Pretty Things blog. In 2014 she asked seven artist, me being one of the seven, if we would be interested in doing a monthly challenge for 7 months, where each of us would pick a theme and make up a packet of beads and such and send out to each of the participants. This year Alicia asked us to pick a photo and make a color palette from the photo.
The month of May is my month and I chose the above photo of my Mom's Confetti Lantana plant. Lantana is in full bloom in May through September in Alabama it is a very hardy plant and one of my favorites. I love the colors in the Confetti Lantana, this plant makes me smile.
Here is what I created from my color palette.
This bracelet is made using spiral rope section divided by 8 mm fern green Swarovski bicone crystals
and silver daisy spacers.
This is Skinny Super Duo Band designed by Deborah Roberti of http://www.aroundthebeadingtable.com. I really like the green picasso Czechmate tiles.
This is a Herringbone Stitch done with Super Duos. I learned this stitch from watching a You Tube video from Potomac Bead Store Super Duo Herringbone Knit stitch. I was looking through a bag of buttons for a closure to this bracelet and found this orange and white button it was the perfect match to the orange 11/0 seed beads.
Thank you for stopping by I hope you liked what you saw, please leave a comment I love hearing from you. Thank you again Alicia.
Now please go and visit my fellow CC7A members to see what they created from the Tutti Fruity color palette.
