I have been getting color idea's from a this website http://design-seeds.com/ emailed daily with two color scheme's to do with what I want. :) Plus I can go to that website and pick and choose if I so desire. The first color scheme I wanted to work with is called Minted Brights. The first photo below is of that color combo. The colors I used are the closest I could find in my glass stash. I admit they might not be exact but as close as I could get. I LOVED it ! It gives me the colors to use but I need to come up with the design and techniques in which to incorporate the colors. Nice. Fun. Just more of what I need to do for myself right now. I seem to need these challenges to keep moving forward right now. I needed to keep the first color challenge simple so I made simple beads. Simple for me anyway. lol !
The second picture is of a small set of beads I am soooooo thrilled with !! I've NEVER been able to get EDP to produce the gorgeous purple it's suppose to be until I made these beads 2 weeks ago ! Wow ! I guess I held my tongue in the right position, crossed my toes and fingers while making them then waited until they came out of the kiln ! lol ! Perfection ! :) I only hope I can do it again because that purple is divine ! :) And typically, I'm not a purple fan.
Hopefully this coming week I'll feel more up to being at the torch. It's the time of year I USUALLY produce a whole bunch more than I have been.
Thanks so much for coming by ! I hope you come back again soon to see what's happenin'.
I hope you and yours have a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday !
