I totally missed out on last month's Pretty Palettes challenge. July was too full with a big needlepoint project and moving my Mom to a house around the corner. I hope August leaves me a little more space for beady creativity. I am posting the inspiration here to remind myself!
Molly has chosen a lovely quiet palette this month inspired by a beautiful pool of water lilies. I love the calm, peaceful quality of this photo.
Here are the beads she has chosen:
And, here's the palette:
The photo of the lilies looks like a painting by Monet, and that reminded me that some time ago I bought some beads that I was going to use for a similar piece. Some times I buy beads just because I like the look of them! You never do that, do you?
So, I dug them out, and they will be the start of my piece. Well, I found one piece; I know I have some smaller beads to go with this!
Here's a better photo to show the corals and greens in the unakite.
