Thank you all for stopping by and checking out my blog this week. In last week's post I mentioned about me and my sister working at my Mom's house, sorting through everything and just hanging out. We had a hard and great week. All the memories that were brought up, the laughs, jokes and stories told were and always will be priceless. Sunday morning my sister and my Mom went home. They made it safe and sound all the way home, some 750 miles away.
Once I rested some I got to work on this week's inchie. Over at Every Inchie Monday the theme is Envelope. This is one of those themes that make me wonder if I can translate it in beads. Took me awhile to figure out what to do, and after 2 remakes it was finally done.
I used the mail icon on my email for my pattern. I used 3 colors of Delicas, this is real small and simple looking. Hope you like it.
Sunday in the Park by George Seurat? This is my take on that painting. I really love this painting, and have wanted to do some art with it for a very long time. It is such a simple painting, just a huge group of people looking at the boats on the river while sitting in the park. But for me it just seems more, there is obviously something so enthralling happening that causes them all to be forever enraptured with the river. I just love it and have always wanted to make it in beads.
This challenge however, was to make it your own, not to use someone elses pattern and to design it yourself. So instead of boats, they are looking at hot air balloons, another theme of the summer.
At first this was going to be a bracelet but after getting it done I think I am going to get it framed as an art piece. I used 25 colors of Delicas, and measures 7.7" x 2.6" and truly enjoyed every bit of it. Here is a close up of the 5 Ladies and the dog.
Also here is the original painting. The colors are all so great and there are so many, many people there. I just love it!
What a great Memorial Day they are having, right? LOL Never thought about that until now.
Anyways, have an awesome Memorial Day and blessed and creative week everyone.
Don't forget to fly on over to EIM and check out the great work from all of the awesome ladies there. Also, if you are interested in beadwork and are not already a member of Beadwork Mentoring, you can also fly on over there and ask to join.
