Friday Finds with Lorelei: Toulouse Lautrec

This week I thought I’d give you a little help with this month’s ABS challenge, which may have some of you stumped for ideas. Although all the colors of the painting aren’t here, I did find some interesting beads that remind me of tulle or lace that would be under the main dancer’s dress. Like those lampwork glass beads from Sarah Hornick- look at the detailing, don’t they look like waves of tulle!?  I tried thinking outside the box for you!! I hope you enjoy this week’s Friday Finds.  Click the above picture and it will take you to the treasury at Etsy.

    The colors in that painting are definitely inspiring! I am going to make something fun with those colors.

    I'm also honored to have my cornflower blue pattern beads included, too! Thank you!

    I love your Friday finds, Lorelei. Very inspiring. I don't lack inspiration for this one but I just wish that I had more hours in the day to come up with something!
    Enjoy the day!
