Here is November's bead journal project. I can hardly believe it is almost the end of the year and I only have one more project to go! This is the second year that I have participated and I have really enjoyed it. Having a deadline really works for me.
I used kitchen foil as the base. I adhered some painted tissue paper and then stitched and beaded. I also added a piece of doily I cut up and painted. I am pleased with the way it turned out.
As a self-taught artist, I have developed a practice of experimenting with my own ideas, which seem boundless. Curiosity and research continually drive me daily. For over 20 years I have taken an explorative approach towards art making. My optimistic approach to life is represented in my art as I find beauty in even the most difficult circumstances. This beautiful, imperfect life I live is meant to be shared through my creativity, resourcefulness and curiosity. I hope to influence my audience with joy.
