Yes, I’m mixing seasons here with summer flowers and announcing the FIMO Classic fall 2013 color recipe ebook. Honestly, I’m usually working with multiple seasons all at the same time. It’s spring/summer here and I’m inspired by flowers and patterns now, but I’m also working on color mixes for fall/winter 2103. Throw in the fact that I’m already looking at color trends for the spring/summer 2014 season……
Creative Play Time
It’s also easy to get caught up in the business of running a business and not having time to play and experiment. I’m determined to add some creative play time into my days, even if it’s just in short little bursts of time. The beads in the photo below show the results of my most recent play time.
I usually make teeny tiny flowers, but went with larger flowers for the hibiscus bead. The other bead is a variation of doodle beads I’ve made in the past. I used alcohol inks and then used a permanent marker for the lines. I got a little heavy handed with the green in places. I was going for a watercolor look, but the inks are a little to intense. Maybe I need to try using watercolors….
