Yea, I know, no fancy title this week. Sometimes I just can't think of something snappy to say.
Well this week over at Every Inchie Monday the theme is Etna. Did you know that Mt. Etna; which is in Sicily, Italy; is what is called a Stratovolcano. Which means they have a steep profile and periodically erupt. The lava from them cools and hardens quickly and doesn't spread too much. Which is probably a good thing for the people who live near Mt. Etna.
So without further ado here is my take on the theme. My inchie is a representation of a volcano as it is erupting. In this inchie I used 7 colors of Delicas. I used matte and opaque beads to try to show depth. I think you can see that in the picture.
Also this week over at 2x2x2 the theme is Amoeba. I decided to make a copy of a diagram of an amoeba. I really liked making this one because I got to use such great bright happy colors. It was a real fun pattern to bead up. I used 6 colors of Delicas and was about 99% happy with it. LOL I do not like that there are some squared off spots on the "arms" of the amoeba. But i did not see it until I was already beading it up so "Oh Well! No Biggie!" Hope you like it as much or more than I do lol.
That is it for me this week. I hope that you are all doing well and staying cool and dry as the rainy heat is hopefully over with for us all for right now. Also, don't forget to fly on over to EIM and 2x2x2 and check out all the awesome artwork from all the ingenious ladies over there. Have a blessed and beady week.
