A Flicker of Inspiration: Sunsets

August is here, and that means summer is nearly over. Although we may rush to try and fit in a few more summer activities, the days will grow shorter, and lazier. One of the most telling signs of summer’s end is our reluctance to head indoors. Sitting around the campfire or on the patio until the sun goes down is a great summer tradition, and makes for some beautiful memories. Perhaps these colorful sunsets will inspire your next great beading palette!

  1. Yeowser. Some gorgeous photos there. Enough inspiration for several pieces, I think!

  2. I have a fascination with sunsets. Every vacation I go on, I have to get a sunset picture. Love this compilation you put together!



  3. Oh, my favourite is the last one. The green sky and rich blue-green hue on the open water. A piscean dream!

  4. That one is my favorite, too! The colors are so surreal!
