Today is the reveal of the Pretty Palettes challenge for May. I was able to find all the beads at Michaels this time, though I ended up not using one the selected beads. The Pretty Palette for May was inspired by this fabric. It's a Scandinavian design from the early 60's. I grew up in a home inspired by this very style so it's colors and shapes are very familiar to me.
Here's the result:
I'm pleased with the way it hangs. Here it is on a stand:
And, although I didn't think that I wore this combination of colors, I found that my new skirt was a perfect match! I love when that happens!
I can't wait to see everyone's designs at the link-up. There were so many ways to go with these beads that deciding on a direction was the hardest part! Here's the Pretty Palettes::May Reveal so that you can see what all of these fabulous designers have done with this inspiration!
