A New Year

2011 starts a new year in the bead journal project, this being my 4th. I've decided to continue on with the Circle and Line Series but plan to add dimensional elements or bead off the edge. The format is 3"x3" and the beads are delica.

Your pieces were so striking last year that I'm glad to see that you are continuing with the same series. And what is the trick to getting the beads to line up straight?

Marty S - To keep the background beads in alignment I started with a ruled line and then did very careful stitching. After every few rows I remeasured to make sure the rows were straight. Really far too tedious!

Like the composition as well as the bright colors...nice way to brighten up the dreary January weather.

Have to tell you I'm in awe of you doing circles and lines! I have a very hard time beading straight lines especially. Your piece is lovely! Thanks for visiting my blog.
