The 2nd Annual Challenge of Colour Blog Hop!

The wonderful Erin of Treasures Found is hosting this brilliant Blog Hop.

I have never taken part in one before, so decided that it would be fun to have a go and hopefully meet some new people, find some new blogs and generally just feast my eyes on wonderful colourful creations! Not to mention, stretch myself to make something in colours chosen for me!!


I chose Teal, simply because it is always the colour that draws me when I am creating, and this is the palate that Erin chose for me from the fantastic Jessica Colaluca of Design Seeds.


















Well, what beautiful colours!! Right up my street!



So after mixing all my colours to as near as I could get to the palate, I got busy!!

Here is my Necklace. My photos are showing the teal as much more blue than green, but honestly is isn't!!!






I made a Leaf cane, using all the colours and then decorated beads using the cane and some little graphic dots of colour in just three of the colours. Hope you like it!!


Thank you Erin for hosting such a brilliant challenge. I was thrilled to take part.

p.s. I have tried so hard to cut and paste all the participants links onto here, but for some reason, it just will not work - so please, to view pop over to Erin's blog, they are all listed there!

Oh wow! I love your piece! I would have found your colors quite difficult to work with, but you made it look easy. Your clay work is really wonderful and I love the little accent dots. They give the piece so much personality!

How fabulous that you mixed all the colors up and made these beads yourself. That is true artistry, Miss Pippa! I am delighted that you decided to join in the fun, and I hope you find lots of new blogging friends through this experience. There is nothing like a good challenge to light a fire under me! Thank you for playing along in the challenge!

wow! beautiful.

Lovely necklace, a fab interpretation of your palette! Not just using the colours together in the same piece, but also the same beads. I like the piercings in the beads, they add a very nice texture and dimension to it.

I can't believe you created the beads for this challenge just to match the pallette! Lovely fun piece, it made me smile and think of summer!

Kristen said...

Your bead creations capture the palette in them.
