Feb bjp

I couldn’t resist a heart for February’s page.  I have various forms of beading on it – and had a great time working on it.  bjp-feb2

I made some felt for the background and tried something new.  I used the embellisher to make the felt – using a mesh tulle background, then tried some wet-felting techniques to make the finish smoother.  I used wool roving and wool scraps and most likely some cat hairs are in there as well.  I had help while I worked!

There is  bead embroidery – the pink heart – and there is a band of bead weaving and a mother of pearl heart bead. The band of bead weaving was to be part of a necklace, but it really needed to be on this page instead.    I tucked all the love and good vibes for Valentine’s Day into the back of my mind as I worked.

    Wonderful pages! Colors are so vibrant and one can feel how much you enjoyed working on them.

    And, boy, do I know what you mean about cat hairs and the cat helping out . . .

    I can FEEL your love and good vibes in this piece… It’s very special when we send positive thoughts into the universe in this way. Awesome!!!

    Nothing like a high resolution picture viewed at 100% in Photoshop to show up the cat hairs. No wonder I get to sneezing sometimes!
