My June 2021 bead mat update, is all about getting back on track. But that’s not all, it’s my promise to myself, to get right back into the swing of things.
I think that I’ve been in a creative slump, and had spread myself too thin. The 100 Day Project was a high creative period for me, but things are a little flat these days. I normally follow a creative period, with another creative period, where I might be creating different things, but I’m always creating something.
I’m trying to bead a little every week, but that’s not all, I also want to stitch more. No, not total absorption in Stitch Meditations again, but I do want to obtain some balance.
First up on my June 2021 bead mat update, is a pin that I made for my jean jacket. Wool felt + fabric scraps + text + stitch + three little beads + kilt pin! Thanks Dwyn (and BeadFX) for sourcing the kilt pins!
I finished the wire and bead collage pendant, that I showed you last week.
Next, re-stock some components, add a nice chain, then an “Inspiration” write-up
Now on to Dwyn’s flowers! I decided to add them to a narrow, driftwood stick. But what is it? Just a decorative piece!
This is where I started.
I decided to stitch a bottle. My plan includes stitch, and a dash of beading, mixed in with a little imagination.
Right now, it’s a FrankenBottle!
I need to do some tea, rust, and Eco-dyeing, to build up my paper supplies.
Here’s an example of some of my tea, and rust dyed papers from earlier months.
I haven’t been doing much photography lately, but here’s a few iPhone shots from last Sunday. Damn, what would we do without our phones?
My June 2021 bead mat update is finished, but I still have tons of creative projects to focus on. I’ve had my second shot, so in a couple of weeks, I will start designing some in-person classes. Is there anything that you would like to see on the fall roster?
Keep safe, social distance, wear a mask, wash your hands, and get vaccinated!
