Still exploring...


As I try to recreate the look of the previous flora beads, I realize that the grit of the sandpaper I use makes a big difference (sarcasm).

At first I liked these beads. I strung them up, took pictures and put them up on flickr and my fan page on Facebook. Then I didn't like them. I know...I'm wishy washy.

I added more color to the sanded off areas, and black to kind of shadow and outline the petals. I also used some black soot embossing powder to define the centers of the flowers. Not too crazy about that part.

Anyhow, here is the before and after. Which do you like best?

Hi Barb...now I'm so curious!!! :)
Anyway, I'm sorry but I love them both! I'm sure some will like the more muted colors and some will like the brighter....do both!!! Choices are a good thing!

I kind of like the darker ones. I think the colors resonate more in them. But, like Susan I think both sets are beautiful, I am just drawn more to the darker ones.

I think both sets are beautiful - the colours are really subtle on all of the flowers.

Just my personal preference, but I like the second set. Gorgeous work!
