So let's get into it shall we? This week over at Every Inchie Monday the theme was Computer. I had originally decided on doing a computer mouse, since I still use one even on my laptop. I really hate the finger pad thing. Makes designing a PITA! But, it just did not look right. Since I really like Tetris I took a screen grab from the game and designed that. But when it came to beading it earlier today I just did not feel like messing with 10 different colors! LOL just call me lazy.
So I wracked my brain and finally came up with this design, a simple inchie with a deeper meaning. Computers used to be for work situations and design programs. Nowadays when we think about computers its all about surfing the web and social media. So this is where my thought process went with this inchie.
Also this week I finally sat down and did a tribute piece that I have been meaning to get to ever since I designed it. After the Orlando tragedy I felt the need to express my feelings and support in one of the only ways I know how (next to many prayers). In beads. I felt this design come to me one day at work and I quickly ran and wrote it down, once I got home I designed it but I had a few other things ahead of it. Then I felt that it was a bit late to make it but I still felt the need to make it. So here it is.
This piece is 1.5 x 1.5, and has a heart beat going through it representing the night club, Pulse. There is also the colors of the rainbow which is a common color theme for the LGTB community. There is also 49 "stars" in this to commemorate the 49 lives lost. I like how it came out; I just wish there was never a need to make this. I pray for the people who were touched and hurt by this troubling incident.
Lastly, I would like to urge everyone who has not checked out EIM or 2x2x2 to go and check them out. They are 2 great blogs with awesome challenges to stretch your creativity. Have a blessed and creative week my friends.
