bead journal project for May

I just didn't want to give up on this piece.  I knew if I kept going I could make it into something good.  The process started with an acrylic transfer that was less than successful - as most are.  I think when you do an acrylic transfer it is best to plan for it to NOT be perfect as they so very rarely are. 
I persisted and I am glad that I did.  I think this is a pretty cool journal page.  I love the wings.  I did a rubbing with silver metallic oil pastel to get the impression.  The wings are made of wood.  They are a scrapbook item I found on ebay.

Personally, I like the imperfection of acrylic transfers :-) There are plenty of other ways to do it to get perfect results, but I love handwork that looks like handwork. Love your piece!!

Oh good that you didn't give up!!!!! This piece makes me sooooooooooo happy... I can't even tell you... Hearts with wings are the best and this one is the best of the best. Of course I clicked to enlarge and enjoyed the subtle details of shading as well. Bravo!
