Sept. ABS Painting Challenge

So I'm going to let you in on a little secret.  I have often wanted to participate in Art Bead Scene monthly challenge and what really gave me the push I needed this month was the prizes!  I'm a little embarrassed about that but... DID YOU SEE THE PRIZES!?

My design includes ceramic art beads I made to look similar to those in the painting, "The White Rose and The Red Rose" by Margaret Macdonald.  I used leather with a little texture and dye to give the look of the textured canvas. I also thread some green leather through the beads to hold them to the leather.  I finished with some silk and silk cording with a couple class beads and a copper clasp.

My photo is dark but I'm trying to get better at that! I enjoyed being part of the challenge.  Now if I could just figure out how to get my pics onto Flickr and use the link tool, I will be set to try this again another month!
Thanks Heather for adding me!!
