beaded scarf

I made this a few months ago and just now getting around to beading it. It looked like I had plenty of beads and a plan. But, I had to do some serious scrounging for ten special beads.  I knew that I was a little short, but reality didn't sink in until I ran out of a key bead!  No way I could replace them at Michael's because most of my beads come from old jewelry.  I found a barrel bead the same width and used two of them to make the length.  Whew!

Can you tell which is different?

Here is a shot with the new fan and carpet.  Painting has to wait for my husband to have some time off  work...I can paint a picture, but for the life of me can't paint a wall.  Well, I can paint a wall, but also touch the ceiling and woodwork and would never trust myself with a gallon of paint on the new carpet!

Mystic krewe of Nyx

Got out my gelli plate to make my friend a Mardi Gras card.  She is riding in NYX parade this year.  They throw purses so made her a little favor to go in the package.

Layered a thin coat of gold paint on the plate and pulled a print through some stencils.  Then let that coat dry before brayering a thin coat of purple.  Very subtle effect but I really like it.    Hope she does.

I am here in the now.

Had so much fun using my gel pens over my latest gelli prints.  Gelli prints make such a great background to work over.  I just glue them down in small pieces with matt medium.

hamsa gelli prints

I had a great time yesterday gelli printing with my hamsa stencils I picked up in New Orleans.  Can't wait to use these in my journal.
Has anyone else out there had a problem with STOPPING?  I printed so long yesterday that I can hardly move today.  Ugh.  It is addicting.  I stopped for a while but before I knew it I was printings again!
"Hi, my name is Micky and I'm addicted to gelli printing."

I did an experiment with a few charms and it worked so well that I'm going patina everything!  If I remember right it was apple cider vinegar and coarse salt. 

I see future seashell mandalas.  
Waiting for the green.
