Inspired By... Ombre Giveaway!

I saw this picture in Martha Stewart Magazine (thanks Aunt Cookie!) that totally inspired me! I just fell in love with the ombre frosting! The gradation of color seems perfect for a strand of beads.

Ohhh I forgot to say what was inspiring me lately...probably fruit colours such as key lime orange and reds. But Easter has me on lovely purples and pastels.

Definitely the Spring weather... But I also get a lot of inspiration by going to Fusion Beads and checking out the Color Ideas: http://www.fusionbeads.com/colorideas/index.php

what beautiful beads, and lovely colors! I've been inspired by the colors of the woods lately, so lots of different shades of green are making me happy. :)

Right now, I am inspired by getting ready for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. I'm not even working with beads right now, honestly...I'm working on a cross stitch piece that my husband and I worked on that I am going to sell to help raise more money.

But, once that is done, I am going to let all of the wonderful spring colors sink in a little further and use that as my inspiration for now...It's been a long winter (even in Houston), and I'm ready for color and happy Spring colors!

What's inspiring me: I just finished a Photoshop elements class today and have been so inspired learning new things, it's like a jump start for my brain! Out with the mush, in with new ideas. After class, I went home and put together some pieces to use for earrings and a bracelet in springy greens. I could really use those cool new beads of yours in my bracelet! And if I had a blog, I'd definately blog about you!
Happy sunny day!

Well, right now I'm mostly inspired to eat cake LOL! My current inspiration is a beautiful raku seashell pendant is glowing shades of gold, rose and moss green.

Lucid Moon Studio said...

I agree, that cake looks yummy, but so do your beads! It's very cool to see what inspired you to make your beads. Right now I am inspired by all the photos of beautiful spring flowers that people are posting on their blogs. Thanks for the giveaway!!

That Martha, she has a way doesn't she?!
Love your version of "frosting". Great colors.

Inspiration right now is coming from a new necklace design that my customers really like.

Thanks for sharing.

Great beads and today you have Edith Pilaf playing - one of my favorites! I love looking out the window of my studio and seeing the yellows, bright greens and pinks. Love spring.

Anne Louise said...

These beads just have spring written all over them. What beautiful color and sheen. I'm placing an order for some pendants as well for a friend who is an artist in Chicago.
