Pretty Palettes November Reveal

Pretty Palettes November Reveal


This month’s Pretty Palette was inspired by Molly Schaller's love of marbled paper.  She admits that book binding is another one of her crafting passions. Her town has its own book bindery called the Book Arts Collaborative. It is a collaborative project that brings Ball State students and members of the Muncie, Indiana, community together to learn more about bookbinding and printing. The Book Arts Collaborative teaches a class on making marbled paper, which is the type of paper often used in the endpaper of books, directly adhered to the inside cover and the signatures (the pages on which the bulk of the text is printed).



Here is the palette generated from this stunning swirl.

Any of you who know me, understand my fear of orange and black.  When I create with these 2 colors I get a major design block.  I am always so afraid the necklace with look Halloweeny.  But hey, it is the month of October.....

Here are the Bead Gallery® beads that I selected.
