Welcome to the first month of the 2015 Creative Continuum of Seven Artists. Our theme for this year is Pictures. Alicia is our coordinator, it was her brain child to bring seven artist together to create a piece of wearable art based on a monthly theme. This year Alicia suggested that we each pick a picture (preferably one of our own to avoid copy right laws) and do a color pallet. Alicia put our names in a bowl and drew out a name for each month of this challenge. Alicia got April, she chose a photo of Easter eggs from a past Easter.
Here are Alicia's own words for choosing this photo:
I went to my stash of beads and I found a polymer clay cross that my bestie Crystie gave to me. I then went to my seed bead stash and pulled out 15/0 seeds in orange, blue, pink, green, and black. I decided to do a Chenille stitch rope for the cross. Here is my version of Pastel Spring...
Oops I just noticed that the jump ring is not closed well, I need to fix that.
Doing a Chenille stitched rope in 15/0 seed beads can be a little daunting, so when I got 10 inches stitched I decided to do the rest with leather. I just so happened to have a dark olive green in my stash. I beaded loops on the ends of the Chenille rope and wire wrapped the leather to the beaded rope and then wire wrapped a toggle clasp to the other ends of the leather and called it done.
Thank you for stopping by and thank you to Alicia for bringing us all together again in 2015 to continue the Creative Continuum of Seven Artist, speaking of which, please go and visit their blogs and see what they created for "Pastel Spring".
