I have just decided in the last few hours, that I am not going to do the Etsy Beadweaver’s Challenge. I have an idea and it is stunning, but I can’t bring it to life. I made the base and made some cool new flowers, of my own design. I made them in BRIGHT BRIGHT colors!!! I had a visual of a ‘base’ in green and ‘beaded ferns’ and bright tropical flowers on it in several different styles. This is what I had done:
I think I have too much on my mind…like getting the car replaced and finalized and all my shows coming up and a court battle and just too much stuff. Plus I have to come up with new classes for Bead Fiesta and all the shops I teach at!! That isn’t a ‘quick’ thing either. It is hard to ‘whip up designs’..but I have some fab ideas!! The flowers up in the photo are my own design and I love them..they kind of remind me of a ‘succulent’ flower in the tropics..some of those were ‘firsts’ so wasn’t sure about those, but the pattern came to life as I changed colors around. I also love my ‘fern’!! Way cool and very floppy. I will use all these ideas another time.
Have a happy..UNsnowy day!!
