MMM Beaded Beauty


This is my piece for MIxed Media Monday. The theme was using beads. I did use beads but good grief....have you ever had one of those days when the universe was saying DO NOT CREATE TODAY! I have dropped more beads....shredded more thread....poked myself with the needle...you name it! But I have had this project in mind for a long time and really did enjoy doing it. It is a large piece for me, 12"x16" and that was new for me too. Anyway I am rambling. Can't wait to see what everyone did!

Almost forgot...the image is from SuzeeQue. Thanks!

Absolutely gorgeous.

Me again! I am afraid to say that my beads are digital! I took two shaped, wired, bead pictures from a digital kit by Lorie Davison at Scrapbook Graphics and used them over and over to form the frame. One of these days I am planning to try some mixed media. I do a little painting and drawing but haven't taken the big step yet. As I am known as a champion messer-upper, I don't know if it is a good idea!
