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.
