More BJP


Beginning, about 3/14/08


Finished 3/21/08

Here's the next BJP page, still needing to have the edges evened out and some threads trimmed, but essentially done. I'm doing my best to work faster so I can catch up with the project at some point.

Here's the page, finally finished. I'll start the next one very soon -- tonight or tomorrow. It was really interesting, working with all those greens.

New Page Started, plus Corrected Scan



Here's the start of the next BJP page. I hadn't used rhinestones in a long, long time, and I found some, so there they are. The design is from a piece of agate I recently rediscovered in the unpacking. I'm tryi8ng to work faster so I can get caught up sometime before the project ends in June.

Here's the better scan of the previous page:



The colors are more like what passes for reality around here. I'm very happy to have the scanner back in operation.

here's part 1, before the move


finished (more or less) today

Well, everything happened to me between last post and now. I drove across the country to Chicago to be with my mother for her last days, found out all kinds of stuff about how she led her life and made decisions for me that I never knew... The drive back was full of cursing and yelling, but I'm the better for it all. (but it's a good thing I was alone in the car...! XD) Got home and went into "sell the house" mode, though with our slow real estate market we didn't sell until late November and now live in a house less than half the size but better built than the previous one. The cats have adapted, and I suppose I will, too. The move was a nightmare, as most moves are. I started this in November, just before we had to really start packing and looking for our new place. It took until I set up my workspace last week to get down to finishing it up. This is a quick snapshot, which I'll replace with a better scan once I get the scanner attached... (first I have to find it!)

July Page is Done

Here's the finish of the July page.



It came out a lot more complex that I had thought it would when I started out. I just let the design grow, and it did. This was also an exercise in emphasizing colors I don't usually use a great deal, and it was interesting to work that way.

Now... on to August and September.

Here's more progress on my July Bead Journal Page. Don't know when I can post again, since I'm about to leave town and take a mega road trip across country to be with my mom. But I'll still be working on this, and maybe I'll be able to start the August page, as well.



I'll be back home in 3 or 4 weeks, and will check in with y'all then.

I figured out how to straighten out my diagonal meteor lines, and made a couple more changes. Here is the final final version of my June Bead Journal Project page.
