July BJP Progress


I am finding these Bead Journal Pages difficult to start. I have all these seemingly great ideas floating in my head, but they get jumbled once I pick up a beading needle. Embroidery with fibers is so much more familiar to me; so I decided to just start beading a sampler of sorts as my page for July. I thought if I knew what sorts of effects I could get with different types of bead embroidery, maybe having this "palette" of effects would help me get started on future BJP pages. So here's my progress so far....
It's funny how sometimes when working on a challenge project, there are just sooo many rules. But take away almost all the rules, and I just don't know where to start!
Happy Beading...

Interesting look to it. I like the zig-zaggy bead part, where there really isn't a pattern, the most.

I couldn't agree with you more about challenges and having "rules" and not knowing where or how to start!
