September 2012: Autumn Colors

Autumn Colors - Inspiration from Free Beadaholique Project Tutorials

Autumn Colors - Inspiration from Free Beadaholique Project Tutorials

It’s hard to believe that it’s September already! Instead of lamenting the end of summer, let’s celebrate the coming of fall with shades of golds, rusts, oranges, reds and browns. If you’re feeling trendy and adventurous, use the Pantone Fall 2012 Fashion Color Report for more options.

Check out our free beading project tutorials for some inspiration, and see below for our hand-picked selection of autumn and Pantone colored projects.

We will select 10 finalists from the contest entries, all of whom will have their work published in our Beader’s Blog and on the Beadaholique Facebook page, for public voting. The winner will receive a $100 Beadaholique gift certificate and further exposure on our blog and Facebook page!
