This week over at Every Inchie Monday the theme is lamp. I have done lamps before on my inchies but I have never done a stained glass lamp. So this week I did one. I have always loved the look of stained glass. The lights are no exception. I always tell myself that one day I am gonna buy one. Until then I can make one in beads.
This inchie used 7 colors of delicas. Five of which were transparent. I like transparent colors but sometimes they get washed out by the thread and the clear colors. But I added them to this inchie because I was hoping that they would look like stained glass.
I am not 100% in love with the colors but I do like the impression it gives. What do you think? Also this week I was shopping at the Dollar Tree and saw something that just grabbed me. It was actually just sitting by the checkout on top of the bubble gum and I just had to grab it. Ohh those impulse buys!
What I got was a set of 6 paper clips with a square gel sticker on the top of them (in the middle) and I just knew that I wanted to bead them. I actually buy a lot of things with the intent of beading them, I know that I have a problem but I don't really care! LOL
I used some beads that I had sitting near me and made a quick pattern design. I did not like the size of the first one I did (on the right) so I redesigned it and I like the size of the new one (on the left). I then hot glued the beads onto the paper clip. What do you think?
I have 4 more that I will have to design patterns for and you know I will....eventually! LOL That is all I have for this week. I have been busy working on a few things that I will show off later on. But for now this is it. Thanks again for stopping by and checking me out and don't forget to fly on over to EIM and check out whats going on over there.
