ArtBead Scene December Challenge Entry

Here is my entry for the December Challenge at Art Bead Scene Blog.

I used a color palette generator to give me all the colors in The Captive Robin painting.

The Captive Robin, John Anster Fitzgerald, c.1864
I loved the Vintaj leaf I had added red alcohol inks to  and began picking out the other elements.

I chose this handmade glass bead from T Beads and some Vintaj chain and bead caps and finally my favorite Swarovski crystals for some sparkle.
Thank You for stopping by and checking out my entry now head over to Art Bead Scene and check out the other entries!

What a great bead! The colors in these intriguing paintings are just so brilliant and earthy at the same time. I love the leaf to make that forest element stand out. Simply stunning.
Enjoy the day!
