March Bead Journal Project - finished!

Good morning! I have finally finished my March Bead Journal Project piece. I really enjoyed the bright colors and flowing pattern. I still haven't figured out how to sew down the big orange stone under the turtle - I'm certain there are instructions in one of the many books I have on beading, but I haven't had time to flip through them to find out! Any tips are welcome.

I have a specific plan for my April piece, so I am hoping it goes a bit more quickly (once I get it started.)

Have a great day!

March Bead Journal Project - in progress

I am still plugging away at my March Bead Journal Project, and thought I would post an in-progress scan. I'm not sure when I'll finish it, but I am enjoying just doing whatever comes to mind with this one.

The fabric is a darker mossy green/brown piece of ultrasuede. I am using brighter colored beads this month, which I think stand out nicely on the background. And I had this neat-looking turtle bead that I wanted to include. So, I have sort of ended up with a turtle on an orange rock with a very colorful body of water around it. At least that's how I see it! I'm always interested in everyone's interpretation, so feel free to leave comments. Have a great week!

Happy Easter and a daffodil!

Happy Easter! Here is a bright daffodil drawing done in pen and ink and colored pencil. This was one we picked from the front yard flower bed. I love these with the orange center and yellow petals. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.
