Slow Stitching Sunday

My latest beaded mandala creation is coming along.  There are still a lot of ideas to explore with this one and I am enjoying every bit of it.

Making Progress

I am really enjoying stitching this piece.  There is still more to do but it is really coming together.  The addition of the butterflies, ladybug and dragonfly really work well.  More flowers and leaves need to created/added.  I love my little garden and that my hands didn't have to get dirty to create!

Work in Progress Wednesday

I am still playing with my six-inch square water experiments.  I scrunched up white fabric after adding turquoise paint.  I let it dry while scrunched up.  I love the wrinkles/texture and the way the paint pooled in some areas.  I added some cellophane and dyed paper towel.  I also added a bit of stitching.

Slow Stitching Sunday

I have made some progress on this piece.  I think it is starting to take shape.  I am trying to think of more ways to add some flower shapes.  I don't want to cover up the two yellow roses that were stitched by my Aunt.  That usually causes me difficulties, not wanting to cover up something.  The area becomes too precious and then it doesn't fit with the rest of the work.  I am still puzzling over that.

Water

It is fun for me to go through my vast stash of fabrics.  I have truly gorgeous material with which to work.  I picked out a couple of silks and a sari fabric to create this little collage.  I added beads and called it finished.  These little water experiments are quick and easy.

Mandala Meditation

I can really get lost in doodling these mandalas.  It is so relaxing to me.  They are far from perfect and I just don't care.  Can you read the word that I created on this one?

Work in Progress Wednesday

It doesn't look like much yet but this is the start of my bead journal for November.  There is a lovely shimmer to the paint I used to stencil.  I haven't had the chance to add many beads yet.
