Bead Journal Project-January
I had signed up for another challenge for this year. I have discovered that I really like beading, so when I saw the Bead Journal Project, I signed up when they opened for membership! The plan is to select a specific shape and bead that shape repeatedly once a month. I pondered for a long time on what shape I wanted to do. So many of the beading artists had such wonderful ideas in years past, but I finally decided on the "Yin-Yang" shape for mine. I drew and cut out 12 circles-about 3 1/2 inches in diameter from Timtex and then drew the symmetrical curve to create the yin/yang. Then I had to decide on colors! And here is my January beading!
Each month I will bead a new "Yin-Yang" of different colors and different design. Then at the end of the year, I hope to create a complete work of art, using these 12 shapes.
