This is my bead journal project for January. First I printed one of my photos onto canvas. I then started stitching into it. Yikes! Not fun. The canvas has a coating on it so that the printer ink doesn't sink into it. It helps the colour stay more vibrant which is good. However, it does make the stitching rather unpleasant. Lesson learned. I will not be doing that again but I did need to figure out a way to keep working on this piece. I decided to take a more mixed media approach. I have used heat-set crystals, dimensional fabric paint and glass gems. I am not finished yet and may still add a bit more stitching. I am not quite sure what the next step it at this moment.
