Mother Nature's Colors

A pink-striped oakworm moth (Anisota virginiensis ) is what came to visit my desk the other night. What a beautiful Moth and such stunning design colors.

The overall shapes of the individual parts also have merit as beadwork possibilities. I'm not sure just how I'd do it, but a layered bead embroidered piece comes to mind.

I used an on-line color picker to extract the color palettes. Do a Google search as there are a lot of them out there. If you want some beading colors for this Fall, you wouldn't go wrong with a combination of these.
