And what an absolutely fabulous soup sent by Karen of Over the Moon Design sent!
Here's the little box and bags, a look at the gorgeous colours of sari silk I get to play with:
Here's main course :
Close up of the bicone beads, I've never seen anything like these before:
Look at the colours in these, beautiful:
Simply gorgeous Tibetan Agate Barrel beads:
And then she went and spoiled me and sent dessert too!
What a beautiful stash! I immediately knew what I wanted to do with the wooden tree, barrel beads and sari silk and I have got lots of ideas for the rest.
You can see that Karen's really thought about colour, shape, texture, size, weight and style. When I made my soup for Karen I spent a long time thinking about colour combinations and relative sizes, all other considerations didn't even enter my wee little mind. I think that really shows the difference between a true artist (Karen) and a wannabe (me).
Tomorrow I'll put up a piccie of the soup I sent Karen and you'll see what I mean. My efforts look so bland compared to Karen's!
This simple excercise of sending and receiving soup has been an eye opener for me. I think I will also put together and sending Karen a dessert using what I learnt from the soup she sent me. I'm off to have a troll around the other paticipating blogs to check out their soups. I'll pop up a list of my faves later in the week.
Tara for now xxx
