Finding Your Voice Workshop – Week 6 – From a Children’s Book

The assignment for this week of the workshop (Finding Your Voice –Sylvie Lansdowne on Facebook) was to choose any children’s book and make a bead inspired by this book.  I was amazed at the beautiful inspiration that was to be found this way, and I’m sure that I will use this technique again.

I chose the book “The Tiny Seed” by Eric Carle and there was a cute little fishy – well,  I just fell in love with  it.

Here is the bead – far, far from the type of beads that you usually see coming out of my kiln!

    I love checking out children’s and juvenile fiction for inspiration. . . okay, I’ll confess I’d love the illustrations in all those books, no matter what. Your fish is adorable, and it looks like you’ve really captured a festive feel from the book you used!

    Thanks Angie – just looking at Fishy here makes me smile. I found looking at this type of book to be a great inspiration. I have several more ideas from just this one book.
