But first, lets get to last weeks. Over at Every Inchie Monday the theme was Door. My first thought was something like a door is the window to the soul. LOL I know that is not how the saying goes but that was what I thought about so I designed an open door, looking outside into clouds. This inchie has 4 colors of Delicas and I like the look of the clouds, don't you?
Also last week over at 2x2x2 the theme was Zodiac and I am not really big into the horoscope thing so I was out of my depth with this theme. But I do love the birthstones, would love to have a bunch of them to make jewelry with. So for me I made me and my kids and zodiac signs in their birthstone colors, with some added stripes on the opposing corners. For this twinchie I also used 4 colors of Delicas. Here is the finished product. Below is the a screen grab of the pattern made from BeadTool4 the program that I use to design my patterns. I sent this to 2x2x2 since I was not able to finish the pattern. I just did not want to not turn something in, you know what I mean?
Now, let's get to this weeks kinda fun. Over at EIM the theme this week is Peanuts. We have been working off of the theme from Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy and I am not 100% familiar with the book. I did see the movie but I am sure that does not do the book justice. But for me when I think of peanuts I always think of the cartoon, of course. But the best part of the cartoon for me was not the kids, (I did not like Lucy or Peppermint Patty, or the adult voices for that matter!) But I always loved Woodstock! He would never fly in a normal straight line. He always did his own thing and did not ever care what others thought. Gotta love that cute little bird! For this inchie I used 3 colors of Delicas and I just adore this one. Don't you?
Well, that is it for me this week. So please don't forget to fly on over to EIM, 2x2x2 and Dry Gulch to check out all the awesome works over there and have a blessed and creative week my friends.
Brilliant ideas on all the bead creations this week. Love the character on the inchie and amazed you did it so smallReplyDelete

Thanks Chrissie, I kinda used the white space to make it look more like WoodstockDelete

I've always loved Woodstock too and your rendition is awesome. Love the idea of your door looking outward to see the clouds as we so often think of doors as things that enclose a space. lovely artworkReplyDelete
Thanks alot Kia, glad you liked the direction I took this weekDelete
Wow, what a super collection of beadwork.ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing all your goodies, Freebird! The colors are great--I would not have thought of those for the Night in Ipanema piece, but they work well together. Woodstock is cute and so glad you finished your Zodiac twinchie. Wouldn't want you to miss a single one! Have a brilliant day! CherylReplyDelete
Thanks Cheryl, I saw the necklace & knew that it would work with the challenge colors. I am glad I got my twinchie done.Delete
