The Big Reveal

"Earthtone Playground" by Mandi Ainsworth

As I said in my sneak peak post, the lovely and generous soup Alice sent me for the Bead Soup Double Up had to “simmer” for a bit before the ideas came. The colors were very out of my realm, so I decided to play with them on a bead embroidered 3.5 X 2.5 inch art card. You can see abstractions of slides, monkey bars, and a sandbox, hehe. Hence the name of the piece, Earthtone Playground.

Apparently the beads I sent to Alice were very out of her realm as well, but her project turned out lovely! Nancy Dale put all the photos up in the Bead Mavens Gallery, which can be viewed here. Thanks to Nancy for hosting this fun swap/challenge!

    At first I thought that was the top of a tin box as in Altoids. With a good double faced tape, that would be perfect atop a metal box.
