Seems what ever my intentions, I always come back to the leaf shape on my latest beads. So in an effort to break out of the rut, I decided to remove my hands from the design all together.
I got out my small cutters and used them to indent into the raw bead. Then colored in with the PanPastel Chalks. Just seeing what I can do with them. I like some more than others, but still playing.
I've starting working on packing up my supplies for the Christi Friesen workshop in the San Juan's this coming weekend. Am a bit concerned as my DH woke up with the stomach flu this morning and has been sicker than a dog all day. I hope it skips me - I really don't want to be sick this weekend. Will be so disappointed if that happens. Keep your fingers crossed for me.
