August Bead Journal Page - finished (at last)


Whew - I was worried!! I didn't think that it would be done. Even finished the 3-bead picot around the edge. I like the fact that the design is fairly simple. Done all in beads from my vintage/antique purse. Now, my idea for September? Not going to tell you. Different, I think.

Congrats, BMan!!! Love the pattern of the beads, the way the dragon is looking right into the vortex. Whew, fab!!!! Thanks for uploading to Flickr... they look great together. Robin

Thanks Robin - funny, I didn't even notice the vortex. I had to relook at the picture. I really like it when others see things that I don't.

Now, do you want me to mail you my leftover vintage beads. I'm done!!!

I love this dragon and the vortex pattern, too. Neat stuff!

That is spectacular Liz! Do my eyes decieve me or do you have Chinese characters above the dragon?

Very good Ellen - very good. It's the symbol for love (I believe). I was going to put it in, but decided that it was making it too crowded. But it does show, doesn't it???

ummm, that wasn't the wicked witch floating over the dragon, sure looked like it to me? Well gee, musta been the subliminal Oz song thing...

So different than your normal abbynormal pieces. Keep coloring outside the lines, cause I like where you are going.

Nice dragon. He looks like he belongs on a shield for a middle ages knight.

Those were all vintage beads? No wonder the color is so unique! What size were the beads? Wow! They had to be tiny to make such wonderful detail!
Great piece!
