I have been inspired by the colors I see in my yard. I mixed up a handful of my favorite colors today from my acrylics. I have had these wooden beads forever and they were in need of decoration. I really like the pinks and oranges turned out. I have a large collection of smaller beads that need to be made into jewelry. I wanted to introduce bigger and more modern colors into the mix. I painted just half of the bead on the majority of them. I had left over paint, so I used it up on these eggs. I got at them craft store on sale after easter. I find that many craft ideas come only as after thoughts...ie after the holiday.
