Bead Journal Project - March

For a start, this is a close-up of the face cab I used in my February post.  I 've only just got round to taking a halfway decent picture of it.  I'm not very good at close-ups.

Now for the March piece.  It really is this blue.  The polymer clay face cab came from a lot I bought on Ebay, I think, but as with all of them, too long ago to be able to acknowledge the artist properly.    The found object this month is, quite literally, something I found on the floor.  I have no idea how it came to be in my house, I'd never seen it before!  It is a millefiore-style glass button, cut on an angle, and it matched the face so beautifully that I just had to use it.  I love blue so I had lots of blue beads in the stash, in fact many more than I could sensibly use in an ATC sized piece.

It is finished with my usual encrusted edge.

Next month is going to be slightly different - still a face and a found object, but slightly different!

Does there have to be a face and a found object in each?? You're right, it's very blue, but what a lucky find.

I love your projects with faces and found objects, two of my favorite things to use on my dolls, and they make a project so interesting!

I love the blue! And the button you found! How wonderful! I'll start looking more closely before I vacuum.

I love finds like that :) for years I have found little sequin hearts around this home, my last home, and even outdoors. I have never found their source, so I've just figured like Mandy said... Angels bring them. :) An angle must have felt you needed it :)
