last bead journal for the year

Originally I stitched on some beads trying to do it in Robin's style.  I love that style and that is why I joined the project so that I could learn to bead like that.  Well, it just isn't my style and there is no point in trying to force myself into a mold that doesn't fit.  I am learning it is best for me to be me.  I decided I would just cut out that section.  I had been thinking about having a hole of sorts in this piece anyway.  I added some paper mesh across the hole and stitched my beads onto that.  Well, that isn't easy to do but I think it was worth it.  I also added another layer of paper behind the mesh.  This whole piece is many layers of paper all adhered together with matte medium.
