bead journal project for August

I started by making the base fabric.  It has silk, dryer sheet, fancy yarns, threads, sheer fabric, hand painted fabric,fancy fabrics, glitter and paper in it.  I used a watered down glue to hold it all together.  I cut this piece from the larger piece that I created.  It's hard to tell but there are some gaps and holes in this piece that I quite like.
I think the beading adds nicely to it.  I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was not difficult to to needle through this fabric.

Angela, I love your choice of colors. The way that you placed the pieces makes the eye travel around your piece in a pleasant way. Your beading accents the entire piece. I really liked it. Gita

very nice. I like creating the backgrounds as well instead of just using a piece of fabric.

This is very creative, and I especially like it because it has some of my favorite colors too.

The different textures and colors work beautifully together and the bugle beads make the whole piece flow!
