ABS Challenge November

Here is my entry for the Art Bead Scene Challenge for November.

This is only the second time I have entered the challenge and the first time was so long ago that this feels like the first!! The painting Madonna Pietra degli Scrovigni by Marie Spartali Stillman is so beautiful. It is not very often that I am inspired to make something immediately like this, but I am so glad I had a go.

The lady is surrounded by leaves in the painting and I decided to surround by beads with leaves in the same gorgeous muted shades.

I have had a lot of fun doing this. If you fancy entering this months challenge then pop over to ABS and have a go! Here is the link : Good Luck!

Gorgeous beads, and a great way to interpret this month's painting- it seemed a particularly difficult one to me, even though it's so beautiful :)

Thank you so much Hazel - I think it was the colours that called to me before anything and then all those leaves - I have a bit of a thing for leaves lol - love to incorporate them into my beads if I can. This is so much fun - I am sure to have a go again!

Thank you so much Lynda! I hadn't thought of making them in other colours, but now you mention it....Hmmmm!!!! :)
