Circus Rides

I have an early morning update for you today. I was woken before the crack of dawn and couldn't get back to sleep. So, I decided to clean up my beads from yesterday and put together "Circus Rides". Aren't this colors FUN!! I was going to make the bracelet all red and orange. But the first batch of beads I made felt like they were missing something. In the past I have put lime green with red and orange but this time I was drawn to my turquoise rods that I have been using in other combos lately.

I think this has started to turn into a mini challange for myself. What I am noticing myself doing is starting with one color combo, then keeping a rod or two from that pallet and making an new color combo. Wondering what I mean? I'll explain more. When I made my "Imaginary Mumps" I used ink blue, purple, aqua and turquoise with just a little green. Then I did my "Purple Pixie" Bead Box update with was all purples, and turquois. Moving on to "Painter's Drop Cloth", I kept those turquois colors and added ivory and coral. The this latest "Coffee House" update had those turquois colors again, but this time with browns. So far turquois is the color that keeps traveling into the new combo. That is until "After Image", where I kept the coral then added reds. See, one color from a previous set stays with the colors of the next set.

What I am wondering now is how long and I can keep that up. I think it would be a fun personal challenge to continue coming up with new combos that have completely different looks and feels but have some color from a previous set that carries over.

I will continue to try to do that for at least the next few weeks. You all know I don't have a very good attention span and tend to switch things up. So, will see how it goes.

I'll be back this afternoon with this week's free beads winner.
