Welcome to my 2008 Bead Journal

The theme this year is "Mirror Mirror on the Wall" - a color study. Each month I made a 5" mirror wall piece with a different color theme. The colors reflected what I was doing and how I felt. I also included a machine embroidery each month as this was new to me (note: I did adjust many embroideries with software to make some of them my own). The challenge for me was to 1) explore new color themes and 2) to use something new that I've never done before on each piece. A few of these are highlighted on the embrodery site whree I got some of the patterns.

Note: I beaded the back of the mirror so the wall piece will hang with the mirror towards the wall (so much better to see the beads!). Click on the image to see it larger and information about it.
