I have recently begun beading again. I have been playing around with floral designs and building flowers out of size 15 seed beads.
I entered all the contests that I could find with categories allowing for the use of seed beads. Most of the designs I made used a combination of colors from one of the Pantone triads proposed by My Lovely Beads for the Fashion Colorworks Contest http://www.mylovelybeads.com/contest/2013/rules.php?year=2013
I started with many ideas for Poppy Red, Monaco Blue and Grayed Jade but some how none of the designs worked out. I had much more luck with the Tender Shoots, African Violet and Lemon Zest.
