Welcome to the June reveal of Creative Continuum of Seven Artist blog hop. June is Sally Russick's month and she chose a soft color pallet for us to create with.
If you are not familiar with the CC7A group, let me fill you in. Last year Alicia of All the Pretty Things blog asked six others if we wanted to be a part of a group that chooses themes to create by and each of us will be given a month to host the challenge. Last year it was based on a title or event of our choice and a bead soup for us to create with. This year it is based on a color pallet from a photo we chose. It could be a photo we took ourselves or one someone else took.
Sally took this photo of garlic plants and pulled out the soft hues of green, mauve, bluish gray, gray, and off white. I chose all but the bluish gray to work with in my piece.
Here is the bracelet I made using the green, mauve, gray, and off white colors.
I am a member of the Facebook group Seedbeadersters and this three drop peyote bracelet pattern was this month's challenge. If you want to try this pattern you can find it at Fusion Beads the pattern's name is Mocha Swirl. Sally's color pallet was perfect for this bracelet. Don't you just love those colors together? I used Miyuki Delica seed beads: eggshell, matte rainbow finish gray, a shimmering chartreuse green, and matte mauve. I chose a summer maiden button for the closure.
Thank you Sally for the beautiful soft color pallet. Thank you to all of you that stopped by to take a look at what I created this month. Please leave a comment I love hearing from you and then go by and visit the others in the CC7A group to see what they created with Sally's color pallet.
We are skipping July because too many of us will be vacationing in July, also one of our members had to take a leave of absence from our group for a little while.

Happy beading Y'all,
