Etsy Inspiration for the Challenge

I was supposed to be creating an Etsy Treasury inspired by this month's challenge,
but Etsy is playing tricks on me and will not allow me to create one. :-(
So I thought I would just share a few things that I found on Etsy that caught my fancy
related to the inspiration painting Portrait of Olga by Pablo Picasso for July.
Click the links below the pictures to be taken to their Etsy shops!

{Glass floral headpins look like the trumpet flowers on the seat by Lori Lochner}
{Faux enamel polymer clay flowers have a soft vintage feel by Hillovely}
{Fold formed and hand patina-ed copper leaf in the perfect shade of green by MissFickleMedia}

{Lampwork glass 'Midnight Morning Glory' beads look just like the tapestry fabric by StoneDesignsbySheila}

{Ceramic leaf connector in Seaweed Green has a great texture to it by KTotten}
{The sinuous lines on these teal on turquoise lampwork beads by SpawnOfFlame reminde me of the way that she is posing.}
{The curly tendrils on the chair remind me of these handmade hook clasps from Rebecca Anderson of TheCuriousBeadShop.}
{The swirls and dots bring to mind the curve of the subject and the shape of the leafy vine in this bead by our sponsor EmaKDesigns.}
{This Teal Branches lentil by our sponsor Humblebeads is the perfect shade of Olga's dress and the shape of the trumpet shaped flowers.}
What will you be inspired by in this month's painting? The color? The shapes? The subject? Do tell!

That fold-formed leaf is just gorgeous! Every time I see her work, my hands itch to get back into metal. Maybe, one day...

Lovely selections...even if Etsy wouldn't play nice with your plan!
