Welcome to the third instalment of the Brit Pack Beaders! My goodness, we have put this one back and back....life just kept getting in the way (annoying how it does that, eh?!). And in fact, life EVEN got in the way for me yesterday, the day I was supposed to be posting this reveal. I am currently rehearsing for a production in London, and sod's law, despite being in the capital of England, there is NO internet reception in our rehearsal venue. Last night was the tech rehearsal (always quite a long and drawn-out procedure - lights, electronics etc....) which meant I didn't get back to my friend's house where I'm staying til 11.30pm.....too late to engage my brain and sort out the post, definitely! So here I am, better late than never I hope :-)
You can see the lovely, lovely materials we each sent out over here. And here's the beautiful inspiration piece, chosen by Bo.
Mariana by Rossetti
Not a palette I often work with - there's something very classic about these colours together - but I really enjoyed working with it. They felt very serene and balanced, and the designs came together very easily. Of course, I know I will hop over to other people's reveals and think 'Damn! They did such a better job than I did!', because that's what I always do. But I like the simple designs I created. Take a look....
And now, hope over to my friends' blogs:
