Work In Progress - First Page, Pt. 1
Here's the first part of my first page, inexpertly scanned. Oddly, though my life is presently out of control in many, many directions, this is the most quiet and well-mannered piece I have ever done. I'm not sure what that's about, but it's interesting.
I started out with the green spiral bead, and it grew from that. I'm not sure whether it will stop at the left-hand curl, or keep growing out toward my thread border. I'm thinking to set a page size, and then mount the beadwork on that, so that the "live" beaded areas can vary a little in size within that framework. That way I don't have to be completely consistent as to image size, just in case the image wants to be larger or smaller.
It has been very calming and sane-making to stop and bead a few minutes every so often, and so far I'm making good progress. We'll see how it goes as things get more intense on the house front...
