Good Saturday Morning everyone-
I know I have got away from blogging but I am back. I will be posting every Saturday morning. Today, I am here to show you my Bead Journal Project for this year. Of course, I am all ready behind. But, I am hoping to catch up with week. Tracey and I spent a lot of time talking about going outside our comfort levels and trying something new. So, I decide I would do circles with needle felting and embellished with beads.
Here is the piece as I got started.
Putting all the elements together.
Close up of it all done.
The finished piece.
Now let me tell you a little about the piece. The birthday stone for January is Garnet and is normal red. Red garnets have long been associated with blood purification. To me meaning a clean fresh start. Blue is the color of loyalty and faith so I out lined some of the felting in blue. I used red seed beads too to show power that you need to have a clean start. Yellow suggest freshness. the color gold is associated with wealth and prosperity which I believe comes with a new beginning. The key is to help you unlock all the doors you thought were closed or to hard to open. The wooden bead that says LOVE is to remind you to keep love in our heart. Then you truly can have a blooming love all year long.
Thanks so much for stopping in. Hope you enjoyed seeing my Bead Journal Project.
