This weeks inchie was originally gonna look like this.
I used 4 colors of Delicas and was able to put 5 trees in my inchie, I was tickled by that for sure. It was fun trying to figure out how to add so many trees using the same design as the original tree from above. I do like this one alot better. Kinda busy but you get the gist of the inchie.
Also this week I finished a commission piece. Ronnie, the guy who is building the addition onto my house asked me if I could make him something to hang in his truck with the rebel flag on it. I think after making this I might start designing "Mirror Dangles". There are so many possibilities with this. Check this out.
I again used my favorite bead, the Delicas. Using red, white and blue beads. I beaded the design flat and then zipped it up together around the wine cork. Then added fringe with alternating colors. Then I made 4 straps that came up into 2 sections attached by a lobster claw clasp and a split ring. Making it so that you can open it up and attach it around your rear view mirror. My mind has been whirling with design ideas. There will be more to come from this for sure!
Don't forget to fly on over to EIM and check out all the great artistic inchie artwork. Have a blessed week, my friends.
Awwww, they are both beautiful inchies - your beading is amazing! Love the Confederate dangle :)ReplyDelete
Thanks Zoe. According to Ronnie, I might have to make more for some of his friends, lolDelete
I had to chuckle about your comment, if a tree falls in the forest, thing. Because if it is the only tree, than yes, would any one will hear it? But, IReplyDelete
re-a-l-l-y like the lone tree inchie!! And then of course you have the whole forest,.....that is amazing!! Seriously, you amaze me with your beaded talent!!! Fantastic!!
Thanks Annette, There are so many talented artists here on EIM i am always amazed.Delete
Two great inchies! I understand the need for both here, the "lone pine" is my favourite though and the mirror dangle is a cool idea too :-)ReplyDelete
Thanks Sally, The Mirror Dangle is gonna have to be something that I work on tutorials for. Now just for more hours in the dayDelete
Both inchies are fabulous. Love the colours of the lonesome pine but the way you have created the full forest is brilliant. Love the mirror danglies too!ReplyDelete
Thanks Lisette, I love the colors as well. Now with all the comments I am wishing I had made the lone treeDelete
Both are terrific inchies and so well thought out.ReplyDelete
I love what you made for the truck they are a wonderful
Thanks Chrissies, I have a friend from Laos who will be getting one next. I cant wait to get that one done.Delete
Beats me how you do this every week. Fabulous inchies.ReplyDelete
Wendy, I feel the same way when I see everyone else's artwork. I cant figure out how you all knock it out of the park every week.Delete
Your forest is very dense. I like it.ReplyDelete
Making a wrong inchie..... sometimes.... you know... ;-)
Thanks, Trillian, Oh my gosh I forgot about that. So at least you are not alone on that one. ;)Delete
Awesome, as always! You ROCK! The mirror dangle is awesome as well.ReplyDelete
