Happy New Year - hope you had a lovely Christmas.
Last year was the quietest I've had on the blogging front
since I started this blog, so this year
I hope to join in with a few more challenges.
Well that sounds a bit like a new year's resolution
and I always resolve never to make
any because I never keep them up!
Anyway, I'll start as I mean to go on and the first
challenge I've joined in with is on the blog called
"Take one painting that is well known, classical or modern,
and make something inspired by it
What can I make?
Anything as long as it involves beads!"
The painting I chose is
'Self portrait with a straw hat'
by Vincent van Gogh
I took inspiration from this painting by using the same
colours - blue and yellow and a little red.
I made a simple handbag key finder
The large flat bead in the centre is Aragonite
and the yellow faceted beads are Agate.
The red strap is leather.
(Absolutely no chance of not being able to find
your keys in your handbag with this flower
attached to them - it's quite heavy!)
Deadlines for entries is 31 January
and there is a prize for one randomly selected
Now, to find another challenge!
Thanks for looking :)
