I thought I would post my bead journal ideas so I have them for myself in one place I can always find them. Of course that won't stop me from writing ideas down on small pieces of paper as I have been, but this is a good start.
I took some pictures last weekend in our drive up to Pacifica. They are of the hills, etc., I thought that would make a nice beading picture. I also have a cool picture of waves from the ocean that same weekend. At any rate, lots of ideas there.
Flower, with and without the material I have bought.
Crazy quilt, just lots of beads
Quilt patterns in general
Frank Lloyd Wright pattern
Native American patterns
Oriental rug patterns
Bead a dragon in peyote and put it on a page.
Use some favorite beads, I saw someone else with that idea, so I can't say it was mine, but it is a great idea and I have been doing that with my faces.
Use some of the buttons I have, in particular dragon flys
Netting of some sort, overlay
Dahlia - pink/yellow/orange colorway
I have some beautiful silk scarves to bead on
Knitting, got to get that in somehow
Experiment with colors I normally don't bead with
Use some more cabs, I have a cool agate cab that will be a nice start for my hill pictures, noted above.
Sea shells or abalone pieces
Take a favorite painting and use the same colorways, or a window of it. This is an idea I have always wanted to try again that I learned in the Breath of God class I took with Carol Wilcox Wells, see earlier post and pictures.
That's all for now. I am sure I will come up with some more.
