Components, Artbeads, Andrew Thornton, Green Girl and Use The Muse II
I've got lots new components sitting on my design board. I'm starting with my Frosted Links. I love their softness and depth. Now, what to pair them with?
I've just joined the Artbeads blogging partners and have some yummy Swarovski crystal ovals coming my way. The "volcano" crystal is a nice complementary color for the blue-gray Frost Link - or even the Kelp color.
But that's not all I have. I've been talking to the awesome Andrew Thornton about doing a Collaboration Exploration. Andrew is an amazingly talented artist and brother to that superlicious artist, Cynthia Thornton of Green Girl Studios. Andrew sent a handpicked selection of Green Girl components:
How awesome is Andrew? Pretty darned awesome I'd say!
I have one last set of amazing beads on their way to me. I've signed up for Use the Muse II. Can't wait to get the set of beads.
So with all these inspirational components in front of me, I better get to work.
What kind of components inspire you?
