First they whispered. Then they hummed. And then they sang. I let them. And then I joined in the music!
After the determination to grow in April and the need for control in May, in June the beads were free. They were happy and they sang. This is their song:
This piece was completely unplanned. It was spontaneous visual music. I picked the colors and just started.
The foundation is Lacy's Stiff Stuff painted with Dye-na-Flow.
The beads are 15/0s, 11/0s, 8/0s, a couple of 6/0s, some triangles, a few cubes, some crystals, and absolutely no bugles.
The page is done almost entirely in the backstitch.
I used blue Nymo B thread. Nymo is my all time favorite. I use B or D, depending on the best color match.
What I Was Thinking:
I wasn't. I just let the beads sing, and I joined in their music.
Issues that Came Up:
I wanted to learn to use a curved needle so I could use it to bead dolls. I decided to try the curved needle on some flat beading on part of this page. That was a good idea. Now I am finding it very easy to use the curved needle on my doll.
After April and May, this page was amazingly relaxing to do.
It energized me. I heard the music, and I felt like dancing.
