I looked all over the web; which is the closest I can get to a flower without killing it; for a great picture of a violet. I just could not find a good looking picture that would translate into something that looked good in beads.
But I finally found a great looking picture, well at least it was a picture that I liked the color differences in it. Here is the original picture.
So, working with this I thought I had a great design. My pattern uses 7 different colors; 2 each of greens, yellows, and purples along with a cream color. I of course used my delicas. I love my delicas lol.
When I showed my son the finished product, he did not see anything. Just a bunch of blobs of colors. :( But then I asked my daughter and she saw that they were flowers! :) Of course, she kinda did hear the conversation that me and my son had so she might have just knew, but the people pleaser in me believes that she "just knew". Let me know what you think.
Don't forget to fly on over to EIM and check out all the great violet art over there.
