I made up this bracelet as a sample for a class I taught recently. It started with no plan (as usual) and then it seemed to evolve into a little garden path once I stitched on the square cube beads. So I 'grew' some flowers along the path and filled in the rest. I can't say I'm a big fan of purple, but boy I sure do seem to have a billion shades of purple beads in my stash!
And then since I was in bracelet mode and I have this skirt with really unusual colors in it that I never have anything to wear with, I started on this bracelet.
Doesn't the middle flower look like a cupcake top?
And now back to my art doll, Poppy--is your head spinning yet?
Her lower half is complete and she has some loopy fringe, but I'm at a loss as to how to finish her. I'm thinking she needs spiky 'hair' on the back of her head, since poppies are covered in soft bristles. I have no plan for her top half yet, but I do think it needs to be smooth, since the bottom is very textured. I'm thinking to incorporate some yellow, since all flowers need sun,but not still not sure. Stumped.
Oh, and did I mention I have not 1, but 2 double spine bracelets started??? Good heavens! FOCUS LYNN!
Oh, and then there's my life box, and my "the kiss" cuff bracelet and ........never mind. You get the picture.
