May 2016 Bead Journal Project

Here is May.


I can't really interpret this one in the usual way as I'm not sure what it represents. I prepared the fabric back in December and originally meant to use it for February but when February came round it didn't feel right. Each month since I've looked at it and not had any ideas for it, then this month I found myself drawn to it. The fabric is a piece which I confetti dyed and because I love the delicate patterns on it I didn't want to smother it in beads. In the end I used clear buttons to let the fabric show through and just picked out a few of the lines and dots. I really don't know how it relates to May for me but it felt right so maybe my subconscious mind understands it better than me!

Here are a few close ups.
