Challenge # 60

Well, I bit the bullet and participated in one of the Etsy creative challenges. This one was to create something inspired by Paris, France. I did visit Paris on a band trip while in high school!
The architecture was what totally overwhelmed me and the fact that everything was old. Here, once its 20 yrs old, its old and you tear it down and build something new.
The next thing that stood out was the language barrier.
That's where the inspiration started.
I created a cabochon out of one of those glass bubbles with a reproduction print underneath. Next I beaded a bezel out of seed beads and voila, My take on Paris. Hope you enjoy!

Thank you for visiting my blog and the super nice compliments! I think your St. Bernard is cute! Big dogs are so funny...Brinkley thinks he's a smaller dog too and steps all over us! You've got to check out my recent blog post and look at all the crazy hair we got off of him today, unbelievable. Hope you'll stop in again! :)

I love this! The colors are really great, too. I also love to work with seed beads. I do a little bit of everything, but I think stitching with beads is my favorite medium.
