Nothing to Disclose
I wasn't lying when I said that this would take a while. I'm still running on fumes, creatively, but I wanted to at least get this post up for you. I've had this idea kicking around in my head for the past week or so, and finally sat down to do it.
My inspiration was based loosely on the beaded trim of flappers' dresses. There was no specific dress that inspired the pattern; I just made it up. :)
I hope you click on these photos to zoom them in. Not because the detail warrants it, but because the base colour (Contraband) is very subtle and lovely. It's a blue-purple base with purple and pink sparks. It comes across as purple in person and is just a doll of a shade, both the apply and to admire on my fingertips.
The 'beading' was done with white acrylic paint and my tiny detail brush. Here is a direct light shot, to try to show you the complexity of Contraband a bit better:

I start my new job on Monday! I'm really very excited. I hope to finish off this month's "week" this weekend sometime, likely Sunday, so keep your eyes peeled for that. Then I can gear up for the next Digit-al Dozen week-- my promise to myself is to keep doing them until I get my mojo back, at which point I will ramp up and start posting in-between them, as I usually do.
