And here I have started #3 in my religious icon series. I am trying something just a little different, this is going to be a little bit more three dimensional - with the star in two pieces on top of the background. In fact, this will be the first time that I have started with a background. I usually do the main colors and then fill in the background, hoping that I don't get bored. The idea for doing the star in layers came from another beading blogger - The Lone Beader - I hope she doesn't mind. She does some wonderful pieces, very cool stuff.
The color of the star is yet to be determined, but with a pale blue and a dark blue background, I need to really make it POP.
