Beaded Face Exchange, 2007

Goodmorning ,
Well Here it is! I worked on the face pin lastnight after my company left.
I got going and was having such a good time I didn't realize the time and ended up finishing around 4am!! LOL
I am very happy with the pin which was my first effort. I haven't attatched the pin back yet, but I will do that later.Thought I would leave that part when I was fresh and rested!!!!! Whenever that is??!!
Can't wait to do another one!!!! Beading is Soooooooo addictive VBG
See you soon

Art Doll Pin

Goodmorning to everyone...
I am about to begin my first art doll pin. It will be used for an exchange I am taking part in.
I have provided a picture for you to see. I decided to do it in silver, pewter and crystal beads along with some pretty gray glass pearls. The face which is mounted on gray ultra suede, is finished in a siver tone and I tried to crackle it but that didn't show up very well. I wonder if the metallic finishes don't take to that surface too well?... Still got a pretty nice color in the end.

I wanted to get started right away but....... there is always a "but"...... I am having company to-day, so the beading will have to wait for now.....
Better run now, and get things ready.....LOL
Stay tuned for part #2

The Color Orange

Lots of fun...... I am trying out the "blog" for the first time...... So here goes!!!

The photo is of a beaded doll I just finished. It was a challenge on one of the beaded doll online groups I belong to. The challenge was to use the color orange, which is not always one we use very often... I must say I was pleased with the outcome.

The shape was to represent a hand mirror .... so on the back side I used a CD which I cut into a circle(gotta heat the CD with a heat gun to make it pliable enought to cut without shattering, but then you knew that didn't you!)

Stay tuned I have lots more to show you now that I think I have figured out this blog thing!!
