Feb BJP - On the wild side



Welcome to this month's BJP - I'd been doing a monochromatic colour scheme for the past 13 months, and figured it was time for a departure! This colour combination was put together by my favourite bead store. They have an awesome staff member who's excellent with colour, and this was a mix of colours that came in a package. I substituted out the bronze beads for a similar shade, so I'd have enough to do the background, and added the matte white delicas to compliment the matte square beads. The buttons are from a charity shop not far from my house.

Wow! I have seen this color combo used before and it is always so stunning. (that celery green would never be my choice so thats why its always curious to me that I love this color scheme so much).

Well, you are going to have a hard time topping this one! Gorgeous beading.

Karin, so totally different! Isn't it great to just grab the beads and see what comes out?

Very striking color combination, and impeccable beading!

Wow, I love it!! It reminds me of Spring "bubbling up"...probably why it makes me so happy to look at, since I hate Winter! =)

Beautiful! I love the matte white background. The variations between the shiny and the matte is excellent.
