So it's time to work on something else, which is Casie on the Rocks. Casie is my 9 pound toy fox terrier who I adopted when she was about 3 years old. Now she's 11 and beginning to slow down (which scares me to pieces). Casie sleeps by my hip almost every night, she's afraid of thunder, lightening freaks her out. She doesn't like firecrackers, cars that backfire, loud sudden noises like Alan yelling at the officials during a football (either American or European).
This picture was taken many years ago while we were on the north shore of Lake Superior, in Ontario, Canada. It's so beautiful up there - just wonderful!
I started with one piece of pellon (thank you Annie, for what seems to be my endless supply) and have added layers on it. Tree, rocks, Casie, her face, will be different layers. I started beading about April 18th and have gotten this far. The tree actually is thicker, plus using a variety of sizes (8s, 11s, and 10's) in multiple colours of brown have given the it great texture. On top of the greenery on the right, I am going to have small beaded leaves attached to the top to give it a real woodsy feel.
