This "learning to be creative" has its downside... like being awakened at 4 in the morning so my right brain can share a few design ideas. *sigh* It's almost like it's getting back at me for being ignored so long.
Tomorrow I'll post about my entry for the August Art Bead Scene Challenge. These are the polymer clay elements I created for a bracelet, based on the colours and themes of the challenge painting. The fish are made with my adaptation of a mica-shift scale pattern developed by the Polymer Clay Tutor, Cindy Lietz. The mariner's wheel button and faux sea glass focal plate are my own original designs.
