I made an entry for this month's challenge at The Art Bead Scene's challenge.
June ABS Challenge
Quite an interesting color palette. After I shopped for beads at JoAnn's, on the drive home I realized just how realistic that color palette was in the nature that surrounded me as I looked out my car windows. Green grass medians with Crape Myrtle trees with bits of pink peaking through. Oleanders all lush green with beautiful red flowers. I saw the different shades of greens in the other trees as well and I really picked up on just how much green is a part of my beloved flowers and tree blossoms.
I tried the mokume gane technique to make my own art bead for the challenge. It was fun, I will definitely be trying that again. The white in the bead is not stark white, I added a little of that bluish green color to look more like that of the butterfly in the painting. Then I distressed it just a bit.
