Just take a look at this week's palette!
|It's called Beaded Brights and can be found at Design Seeds.|
Sure enough, one look at this palette and I was waking up to these brights. The hardest part for me was that pinky, peachy, coraly color below the blue. I had NO beads in that shade. I did find some buttons that came close though.
|This was the closest I could get to the colors in the palette.|
|I used gold-tone wire to give it that classic look.|
While I'm here, I finally decided on a name for my Link dump posts. Introducing. . . .
I'm still working on my goal to get in a publication and found that I saved a bunch of helpful links on the subject.
- Lorelei offered up a few tips as well as links to popular beading magazines' submission guidelines.
- Heather at Humblebeads wrote a similar blog post with tips and links. She also has a link to Lorelei's post and one from the illustrious Lori Anderson of Pretty Things.
- Lastly, Cyndi at Beading Arts offered up her own (longer) list of links to magazine submission guidelines.
Since those links are all business and no fun, let me add a tutorial to this list.
- Malin at Beading by Malin de Koning posted a great tutorial on how to make a paper box. I've made similar ones but they're always been too tall and not wide enough. This short, wide one is perfect. Thanks Malin!!
Lastly, here's a new and a sale item in the shop.
