Février / February

J'ai laissé passer le mois de janvier et me revoilà pour février et le défi mensuel de Art Bead Scene.
Voici donc l'inspiration du mois:

I let January pass but here I am again for the Art Bead Scene monthly challenge.
Here is February's inspiration: 

Amapolas, 1913
Illustration published in "News of Spring and Other Nature Studies
By Edward Julius Detmold
Watercolor, 208 by 124mm

 J'aurai aimé avoir des coquelicots et étonnement je n'en avais pas! Par contre les couleurs du pendentif de Suburban Girl Studio m'ont semblé être un bon point de départ.
Ensuite, j'ai essayé de rendre la délicatesse et la finesse des fleurs et j'ai opté pour de la soie recyclé.
J'ai du mal à travailler avec les tissus et je n'ai pu m'empêcher d'ajouter du  métal et des pierres pour donner un peu de poids.
J'ai donc fait et défait pour arriver à une disposition qui me convienne.

I wished I had poppies and surprisingly I don't. Surprisingly, because in French Coquelicot  is poppy.
But I thought the colors of this ceramic pendant by Suburban Girl Studio would be a good starting point.
Then I tried to make something that would give the feeling of the delicate flowers and I chose some recycled sari silk.
I find it quite difficult to work with fabric so I couldn't help adding some metal and stones to give some weight. 
And I had to do and undo until I found a satisfying arrangement.
