TIO #55 - Bead-dazzle

This was a really nice one to do. I am deeply into making beads and these lovely little Lynne roses. This one is only about half an inch across and is painted with peony eco paint and sploshed with red fire cosmic shimmer. The beads are pink, gold and white poly clay, with some gold leaf moulded in.

So, this week, I would love you to dream in beads, jewellery etc ... bedazzle us please, but don't forget one really truly stamp. Mine is printed in sepia archaeval from the luscious new set of words by Elusive Images - Artistic affirmations... you HAVE to have it!!!

Hey... a couple of bits of news that are very exciting for me - I have a ticket for the Tim Holtz craft course next year, and Crafty Individuals have agreed to sponsor a prize HERE on this very site!!! Wooo..
Enjoy and hugs from

Fab tag Frankie. Well done on getting on Tim's course can't wait to see what you come up with from it. Love Elizabeth xxx

Really gorgeous, Frankie. You didn't say we had to make the beads (though I have made beads in the past) so I used some teensy-tiny beads with miniscule holes for my hanger.
