But first, from last post. No Annette, you are not the only one. 🙂 When I had that sword stitched up and took a look at it my first thought was “phallic much”. lol
BBP is thisclose to being finished.
Remember my fabric is dull green, green-blue, and tan. Think Atlantic Ocean colors.
Crystals & beads oh my!
Can I tell you how much I love the fact that the seahorses are different and not mirror images of each other?
Now, why is BBP nearly done. As you can see her hand is still empty. When I started her I thought the shell was ok, but I felt she needed something more than that. My first thought was a big honking pearl. My second thought came to me while I was beading the comb in her hair. I remembered something called shisha embroidery that I had seen in a craft blog. Since BBP is combing her hair shouldn’t she have a mirror? Of course she should. I hunted down some real glass shisha mirrors (I had to order them from England), they came with cheap “frames” and I am using them in the pictures below – but I plan on stitching my mirror down like the tutorial shows and not use the frames. I’m pretty sure I’m going to use gold Krenik for the mirror frame and toss in some more beading too. I plan on practicing on a scrap piece soon – how soon… depends I might be crazy busy the next few days.
Anyway here are some test shots, I’d like your opinions on round vs square. The round is slightly smaller than the square.
Or if you think my idea for the mirror is totally cracked out, let me know that too. 😉
