Supply List for Bead Class on Ustream

My beginning Peyote Stitch Bead Class will be held LIVE on my Ustream channel - Time Warp Art - on November 18 - Friday 11AM EST.

The project will be a bracelet. The pattern PDF can be downloaded HERE.

Supply List:
-bead needle to fit your beads and thread
-nylon beading thread (Nymo) (can use dental floss to learn)
-a shank button (will be used as "clasp")
-some kind of surface to bead from - piece of leather (old coat? old purse?), suede, bead mat, washcloth
-2 colors of seed beads* - contrasting (ex. black and white, ex. light and dark)

*Delicas recommended but any size #11 seed beads can be used. You may also use larger beads, just be aware the size of the bracelet will be larger in width. Almost anything can be used to learn with!

If you'd like to get a jump on things, watch our Mitzi's Ustream recording on making a Starter Strip Ruler! Taking inspiration from a starter strip I put on my bead website years back Mitzi has created a great tool for us to use in our beadwork!

So, I am looking forward to the Bead Class on November 18th! Hope to see ya'll there!

NaNoJouMo for Nov 2

NaNoJouMo for Nov 2 - "See the Possibilities". Got a full 2 pages done again! I don't know how long that will happen but it is fun trying! I put the finishing touches and photographed it this morning.
This one is total collage - all pics from the same catalog. Did the text on the computer and printed it out then watercolor over it.

The 3rd prompt isn't up yet but it's very early. Can't wait to see what it is!

NaNoJouMo 2011 #1

As if I'm not busy enough - I take on yet another challenge! NaNoJouMo stands for National Nonstop Journaling Month! This is hosted by Dawn DeVries Sokol and you can read about it here.

So here is my Art Journal page set for today. I have die cut leaves (from book pages and scrapbook paper) and doodled in them. Made a Fall color background with 4 layers of paint, then added some rubber stamps, painted the tree branches, stamped the message and there ya go!
