Jewelry and Beadwork

A little change of pace today. First, I painted some paper with metallic paints and made these two bracelets. The bracelets are from Beadaholique, and it's simple to cut the squares with a paper punch.

Bracelets

I am getting back into bead embroidery, and my friend Nicole Campanella (creator of Nicole's Bead Backing) is having a contest. I bought some of her cabochons, and I will be making a bead embroidery piece to enter the contest. You can find the info on Nicole's cabs and the contest on her website, beadwright.com.

Cabochons

I also bought these great eyes from Nixcreations on Etsy. I will incorporate some of these in my piece.

This week in art

These are the two digital paintings I created this week. Both are based on royalty-free photos from Pixabay.

This first one was created using iColorama, Metabrush, and Procreate.

Owl

This one is a still life that I layered with a crackle effect in iColorama.
