I haven't actually started stitching on my first journal piece, first I need to finish stuf from last year. I've been ill for a while so I fell behind. Today I finished 2 ATCs and 2 textile pages. I've used beads on one page and on one ATC. I love working with beads, but I still have a lot to learn.
this is a textile page I made for a swap. there are lots of beads sewn on.
ATC for a swap with the theme "10", beads are always good for centers of flowers.
this is a seam treatment I made on a cq rr block, I love those dangling leaves.
stumpwork berries on a cq rr block. the black beads are actually a trim sewn on.
my plan for the my journal is to use art nouveau/Jugendstil motifs as a focus point and I want to surround them with beading. I haven't exactly figured out how I'm going to do this, still in the planning stage.
