TIF Challenge, Bead Journal Project

Since this is going to be one of those months where I'm too busy to think, I decided to combine the Take it Further Challenge http://sharonb.wordpress.com/ with the Bead Journal Project http://beadjournalproject.blogspot.com/ using the color scheme option again. The sequins will be put on using a shisha method, and the other beads will be in lines that ripple around the sequins. The background is black wool that I felted and interfaced to support the beads.

I've finally figured out how to move the pictures where I want them-the learning curve is still steep on this stuff. This is the Journal I made for putting technique papers in for the class I'm testing for Sue Bleiweiss. Information on the course which she will offer in the fall can be found at http://webpages.charter.net/sbleiweiss/mmtechniquesclass.htm The fabric is an African print that I bought in Houston when my son took me to a big, great fabric store in the museum district. The button is antique.

good idea to combine those challenges, that will certainly make it easier to get both done.
