This week over at Every Inchie Monday the theme is Grandmother. My first thought was the tree in Pocahontas, Grandmother Oak. But that did not translate nicely into beads so I went with an abbreviated design that resembled an embroidered corner on a hankie. Because, of course, all Grandmothers (or Mamaw, as I will one day be called) have hankies to wipe babies noses. For this one I used 4 colors of Delicas. I do like the white background beads and the metallic purple beads.
Also this week is 2x2x2 and the theme there is one that we have had before on EIM, Orange! So first I will show you what I did for EIM back in 2014.
Orange you glad I did not say banana??
So, yea, an orange GLAD! LOL I told you my humor is always a bit odd.
Well for this weeks twinchie I could not go the same route but what I did want to do was a whole citrus montage with a lemon, a lime and 2 orange slices. This one is one I have waited for all year. I just like how I used different colored and types of beads for the different colors of the fruit.
For this twinchie I used 9 colors of Delicas I love the transparent, matte and opaque look to each slice. To make this pattern I had to do it in 3 parts. First part was the Lime slice.
Then I made the orange slices last.
First I took the lime and copied it onto the lemon pattern. Saved it. Then copied the orange slices and pasted them on top of the lemon-lime slices. Lastly I colored the middle white. Parts of the lemon-lime slices are hidden by the more important orange slices. I really love how it looks.
Well, that is it for me this week. I hope that you like what you see and maybe think about joining along with the fun in EIM and 2x2x2. Trust me, the thrill you get from designing something for the simple joy of designing something is well worth it! Have a blessed and creative week my friends.
