April BJP Done
Whoo hoo! Another page done! This is a biggie as it means I can now get pics of the ones I have done on the web page for the BJP. You have to have eight pieces done before doing that and that's where I am. Yay. I am two-thirds through the year with this one completed.
April's page is on blue-violet of the color wheel which fit nicely with the usual Easter month. I ran into trouble finding gifted beads this month but found some seed beads my sister had sent me from Japan. They are the shiny ones in the vertical striping. Since April is the typical Easter month, I used a cross that is actually a purple if it is held up to light. It doesn't look it on the beadwork but if you compared it to black or another color you would see it. I added the butterflies as they are also a symbol of spring and new life. There are three for the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Hmm, it doesn't hurt that 3 is a good number in design either). This is a simple piece but I like it.
Now on to May. I'm having a tough time thinking of what I want to say with this one. It will be blue and that's as far as I've gotten. Stay tuned....
