Here Comes The Sun IA Challenge

Linda of Gemma's House is co-hosting the IA Challenge this week with Hettienne. She asked that we be inspired by celebrations honoring the sun and the upcoming season of Spring. My interpretation is simply the first flower of Spring, a rebirth, in sunshine yellow: Crocuses!
Don't forget to click on the IA link above and visit all the other artists participating this week. Play along if you wish--new challenges are posted on Mondays & you have until Noon the following Sunday to link up!
Have a happy, creative weekend everyone, and thanks Linda for a fun challenge!

Such beautiful flowers. I happen to wonder: How many beads are there in these flowers? A silly question, but it seems like a lot of work!! Happy to see that you are on the creative track again!!! Happy weekend Debbie!!

Debbie, these are stunning! Another winner! Lone had a great question! How many beads to you think are in each flower? Happy weekend Deb ;o)

Beautiful!

Lone...too many to count! But I would guess, at least 4000+ yellow in the 3 of these. It is a labor of love, for sure!

Craftymoose Crafts said...

I answered above...Plus another 3000+ for the green!

Such amazing work! Can't believe all those beads.... I've done a little beading here and there and can't imagine the effort and time that goes into these little gems.

Gorgeous!

Crocuses are so pretty! And that beadwork is very detailed, I love detail. Wonderful reminder from you that some of the brightest sun's rays actually come from within the earth, and in this case, plants.
