I find it wonderful serendipity when I happen to have the very thing in my stash that represent the painting. Miss Karin all the way over in France has been amassing quite a wonderful hoard of art beads and had these beauties and that perfect shade of purple leather cord just lurking around! Read more on her blog, Gingko et Coquelicot.
Beads with a graphic punch and a bright palette are all that is needed for this pretty bracelet from Miss Katherine. Read more on her blog, Catherine’s Dreams.
The painting this month with its knockout colors inspired Miss Vera to try her hand at a new skill. Read more about it on her blog, Designed by Vera.
I am a fan of fiber arts, mostly because it involves skills that I don’t possess. Miss Jen crafted not one, but two soft cuff bracelets as the perfect backdrop for some pretty art beads. Read more on her blog, Purple Fish Studio.
I am in awe of those who create magnificently complex polymer clay canes. I simply don’t have the patience or the vision for that! I love the journey that Miss Cate shows us of her process. You really should go read it on her blog, Fulgorine.
I like the way the three dots on these yummy glass beads represent the three people in the painting. Read more of Miss Pam’s inspiration on her blog Klassy Joolz.
The abstract figures in the painting reminded Miss Beth and her mom Miss Evie of space invaders! They created this remarkable focal from the actual images in the painting and show us their sketches that turned into reality on their blog, EB Bead & Metal Works.
Okay. I admit that I am cheating a bit as I didn’t get the chance to finish my piece inspired by the painting. For this month’s painting inspiration I created my first Stroppel Cane inspired by the colors and the strong linear lines. These were sent to my Simple Truths Sampler Club members and I also have them in my Etsy shop as well. I will eventually get to making something from this – I have all the beads out and in a bowl ready for the moment to whip them up! – but I am so proud of this new skill that I wanted to share!
Thanks to all who played along with us!
I know I have mentioned this before, but it would really be a nice thing if everyone would add their exact URL to the description in Flickr. I love reading your blogs, but when I am doing this for a few days, and really reading your posts, it sure helps me out to not have to search for it!
I am thinking of a new way to do the blog hop and will see if I can make that happen next month. Time to shake things up a bit!
Stay tuned for the September challenge!
