The is a picture of my 'March Winds' I did for the 2010 BJP last year. I'm showing the small triangles that I made for the kite tail. (You can see the finished journal at the end of this post...back to the triangles.) I read Kate McKinnon's blog, which is a hoot, and she's been making closed beaded triangles from a technique by Jean Power's from the UK. I thought the triangles from Kate/Jean were quite clever, so I started to make them yesterday. My triangles above are made differently than Jean's but I have to admit her method is quite simple. This was the start of my first triangle.
And while watching the TV last night I made two more, but I'll need several to put them together. You have to see them enclosed on Kate's blog
and on Jean's blog. I think they're fun to make and you just never know where or how you might use a beaded, enclosed triangle!
This is how I used my peyote triangles so you might be surprised where or how you can use them!
The sleeve and label are on 'Betty' so it feels SO good to have that finished. It was a fun piece to do but I'm just glad to be done with target date projects. Now I can play! OK, I always play but now I can play without guilt! Temps up to 73 and I'm off for a bike ride...no breeze so I'm sure it will be hot out! Something different, right!
