July BJP Finished!
Well, after a very interesting month of July (with Mandy's surgery and recuperation) I finally finished my July BJP!
This is the picture I used as my inspiration. I wanted to do some type of beading in a fireworks design. and I didn't want to do a red/white/blue piece just because...who knows I might rename this piece after a year or two!
This is my finished journal piece (8 1/2" x 11") entitled "Fireworks" (go figure!). This piece is quite heavy! I'll have to get out my kitchen scale and for fun see how many ounces it weighs. Any bets??
And a closeup of some of the beading. I used the good old 'feather stitch' along with #6, #8 and 11 beads and flat sequins for some of the feather stitch which I get from Joggles.com. I find these type of sequins hard to find and I'm starting to run out of them! I see Joggles only has three colors left.
So now on to August and Sept.! I'm usually right on time with my projects but thank goodness I have a legitimate excuse! Wonder how long I can blame my being behind finishing projects on Mandy! Glad she can't read or talk!
