Bead Journal Project: July

I'm still trying to get caught up with my Bead Journal Project pieces by it seems a bit of a loosing battle.  I did finish July a few days ago, but I haven't started August and September is fast approaching!  Oh well!!!

I've included the colour palette from Vicki Welsh that is my inspiration for colour.  


Here's the finished piece, and below is a close up of the centre 'bead'.  Since I spent a lot of July photographing the many variety of birds the visit us at our cottage feeders, I thought this was an appropriate centre piece.

  2. I do love solid beading. The zingy colours of this piece make me think of acid drop sweets and my mouth waters. I'm looking forward to seeing it added to your spiral.

    Have found and enjoyed the beautiful bird photos taken at your cottage, but my favourite ones are the squirrel & racoon. We're due for another litter of grey squirrel kits in the chimney pot before too long. I just wish they behaved themselves a bit better - not the gardener's friends!

  7. Linda... right down to your color-way inspiration...M & Ms and all... jazzy, hot, fun, pretty, exciting, expansive, bird energy. I love it! Do you recall where you got the silver center piece? I'd give a few eye teeth for one (or more) of them. I'm looking forward to seeing the pieces together!
