May Bead Journal Page

I can not believe that this is the last page for the 2007 - 2008 Bead Journal Page quest. This is May. The face is a polymer clay face I made, painted with gesso and then used water color paints to drip all over it with my favorite colors. I really like this page because I used a bunch of different beads and used some in different techniques that I haven't used before.
I know that I'm really early with the last three pages but, I quit my job and have been using beading to "run away". I am happy that I actually finished the journey. I was afraid earlier in the year that I wouldn't finish and I really wanted to in the worse way. I proved to myself that I could make a year long commitment and do it. Best part is that I enjoyed the whole thing.
I have also enjoyed watching everyone else's pages. They are all so wonderful and creative. I have seen my own growth along the way especially in the beading ways. My favorite part is just letting the page create itself. What fun! Thank you to all for your sharing.

April Bead Journal Page

April showers bring May flowers! That's what went into my head when I did this one. I'm hoping for lots of flowers since we had lots of rain. Wish the shine came out better with the sequines I used for the puddle.

March Journal Page

March Bead Journal Page is celebrating the GREEN! I didn't catch the shine of the whole piece which started with the great cab in the center that has flakes of silver in the green. I don't know what it's called but I built around it.
