Here are some stamped cards (post on how I made them to follow this week)
I used this stencil
And the piece de resistance, my peyote bracelet complete with skulls and swarovski crystal fringe!
I changed the pattern a little
1. I did even count peyote, and made it narrower than the pattern called for
2. I did long fringe on both sides
3. I put colored skulls instead of their tasteful gray
the link to my halloween or Fall colored bracelet is at ArtBeads, and it's a free pattern.
I like Halloween
It was a good kick start to return to the studio, along with my community of Rainbow Scrap Challenge blocks. I needed to sew, and create, and make. I had a hard time coming back to it from the loss of my Poodle-son Cole as all the joy left the building. I had to go find Joy and bring it back, little by little.
The house is not as joyful as it was... I still cry each day.... it's just that I create something each day between the tears and it's a start.
Enjoy these posts from prior Halloweens with my darling boy...
