I have decided to try a new experiment. I have decided to try writing for ten minutes on my blog, once a week. There isa purpose to this – as you may have noticed, I have not managed to do too much writing on this website, even though it has been my intention to keep up regular posts.It is my hope that this will help me to form a habit of writing again.
I got in a new shipment of beads – some delicate yellow Delicas. Yellow is not a colour I work with often, so I’ve decided to give it a try. Most of the colours I use on a regular basis tend to be darker, or bolder, and skew towards greens and purples.
I find working with new colours, like new techniques, can be very stimulating, but also relaxing. While a new technique offers new design possibilities, I find that colour can change the look of any design, and add a new emotional tone to the piece.
And that’s my ten minutes.
Edit: Oh, by the way, if there are weird format issues, it’s because I’m working on a tablet right now and haven’t worked out all the tricks yet.
