Two Week's AGAIN!!!

Hey everybody!  Thanks for stopping by this week.  I tell ya, working 6 days a week reeks havoc on my bead addiction!  But I did work on the inchies of last week and this week.  So let's get down to it!
Last weeks inchie theme was Camel.  I am not a fan of animals that can spit at you or step on you.  But camels are kinda funny ones.  They seem to be hams for the camera, at least on TV they seem that way.

When I was about 9 I rode a camel.  It was pretty interesting.  Not something I would want to do on a daily basis.  LOL  Also this theme was the hardest one for me this year.  I really could not get the pattern right.  I like to go with my first thought on a theme, because usually it is the best one I can come up with.  BUT, this time was not the case.  I wanted to do a camel up close (like he was looking into a camera) and behind him was the pyramids.  But no matter what tweaking I did it just looked like a deformed pile of poop in front of 2 triangles!  Not the best one, for sure!

So I went with something that I thought about but decided against; that is until I hated what I came up with LOL.  I decided to make a take on the Camel Cigarette Logo using just 2 colors. Here it is.


This week's theme over at EIM is Rhino.  This week I took a page from my camel (or the camel took a page from my Rhino!) and made him in silhouette.  This time though I only did the rhino's head.  Check him out.


That is it for me this week(s).  I hope to be able to make it on time next week.  Don't forget to fly on over to EIM and check out the great art work over there and join in the fun with us!  Have a blessed and creative week my friends!

  5. That pile of poop for a pyramid made me smile too! Sorry you had such a hard time - sometimes they just don't turn out as you want them to but the camel cigarette logo has worked a treat - I think you should give yourself a pat on the back - it always amazes me how you do these inchies in beading and your rhino is fabulous - great silhouette of the huge beast and all on an inch in beads! Wonderful hugs Jenny J
