More Progress on my March Beaded Journal Page

Here’s a peek at the progress I’ve made on my March journal page. I enjoy creating the texture of the tree bark. As I bead each twist and turn, I contemplate all of the twists and turns I’ve taken in my life up to where I am right now. I think I will make some fringy roots that will hang free. As I’ve only been in my new home for 3 weeks, I’m not feeling especially rooted right now.

    Your artwork is lovely. Thanks for showing the progress. I can’t quite imagine how you do it. Maybe someday you will give us a tutorial? Best to you!

    Thanks Lynn! For a great book on beaded embroidery, I highly recommend Robin Atkins new book, “Heart to Hands Bead Embroidery”. I got this technique from that book. It’s fabulous.

    You’ll take root soon! Your choice of colours are beautiful and I think reflect March perfectly – the chilly mornings and the warmth of the afternoon soon after a cold winter. New life, creation….

    Thanks Lunes! And our May here in New England feels like March because it’s been so chilly lately. Brrrr….

    Thanks so much for your kind comments!

  9. It’s looking great. I just finished reading Robin’s book last night and saw the connection in your piece immediately. What a great affirmation you are giving to Robin with this page!

    I’ve moved so many times I can tell you it doesn’t take long to settle in but those deep roots do take a while. But blossoms happen before roots get deep!

    Thanks Timaree, Robin is my beady hero and I wanted to honor her inspiration and guidance while also manifesting the visions in my imagination. This was a perfect fit!

  11. I knew this was going to be scrumptious!

    Just returned from New England to southern New Mexico a few days ago. Although it was chilly, my heart was cheered at all the lilacs blooming everywhere I went!
