Color Challenge



Well I wanted this post to happen this morning, but unfortunately my work life reared it's ugly head and I am just now having a chance to take a breath and type this. You would think that since the economy has tanked and construction is mostly at a standstill that I wouldn't be as busy as I am, however when you install and replace gas lines, you are always busy! Everybody wants heat in the winter, even in sunny Arizona. We bundle up and wear parkas when it hits 75 degrees outside!


Here is my Color Challenge that I received from Erin Prais-Hintz http://treasures-found.blogspot.com/. She mailed out paint chips with some beautiful greens to me to use as a jumping off point to create something. The color names are: Garden Path, Seawall, Lake Marsh, and Bay Breeze. I used all 4 colors between the pearls, and jade beads and the paint/ink patina that I applied to the brass piece that I etched. I included some vintage lace.
I call it my Lake Marsh Love Birds bracelet. I hope you enjoy!



Just updated my post to add the blog-hop participants. Sorry Friday and Saturday were chaos, and no they were not organized!

Fabulous piece! I always enjoy combinations of beads and fabric or ribbon of some sort.

I absolutely love - I think it might be my favourite so far! I've been wanting to get my hands on some old lace for ages now - and seeing this has just made me more determined!

I love what you did with your colors. For me, those would have been difficult colors to work with, but you did change those colors into a piece of wearable art!
