Perfect Pairings :: Martha's Ruby Acorn + Artybecca + Dreams and Elements + Round Rabbit

This challenge painting is just tailor made for color blocking!
What drew my attention to this piece was the delicate balance that Martha has achieved with her color play. The white stars on the right are the same size as the beads on the left, that give the piece the visual weight. The fact that the bead on the left has a star on it, brings in what I call 'The Power of Three' to the piece: three stars in a triangular shape. This piece makes your eyes roam over it, as they would an autumn landscape, soaking in the colors and marveling at how they all work together so well.

Featured Designer :: Martha's Ruby Acorn

Featured Bead Artist :: Artybecca + Dreams and Elements + Round Rabbit
Just a friendly reminder... We have a slightly new format for uploading your pictures for consideration for the Perfect Pairings each Wednesday, as well as the Monthly Challenge Recap post. We are now using Pinterest! You can find more details in this post about the exciting new changes, including a board devoted to art beads inspired by the monthly challenge! (Ooh! Look!
