Perfect Pairings :: Monique U + Pepita Handmade + PotteryGirl1 + Outwest + Two Glassy Ladies + BeadSwedeSupplies + ColourComplements

It is sweet serendipity when you happen to have the components you want to use on hand to make something for the monthly challenges. That is what happened to Monique of A Half-Baked Notion. She had just ordered some sweet little ombre enamel bird components right before the challenge painting was announced for the month. That is what I call meant to be(ad)! (See what I did there? 😉
The colors are lively and there are so many wonderful details to keep my eyes dancing. From a variety of art bead artists (that’s a lot of art beads!), to the handmade feathers from Monique herself, these components just sing, like the birds outside my window so happy for the warmer days of early spring. And do you see the window in the center? That is so very clever to include!

    "…meant to be(ad)" LOL yes I am a disciple of serendipity, indeed. (That clasp was one of a set custom designed by Kristen. Her work is inspired, and I am afraid I now have an enamel cross-addiction.) Almost every component in this piece was received in the months of February and March. Eerie…
