After taking a break, I finally decided the weaving needed a little oomph so out came the beads. And, okay, I'm cheating a bit and using several of the Bead Gravy glass bead mixes, one in greens and one in golds, from Joggles.
Oh, while I'm thinking about it, this week's video will be posted on Tuesday, December 28th instead of Sunday, December 26th.
Anyway, back to the embellishing. All along, I've thought this small weaving looked like a Southwest landscape. But, the greens were a little too green. The beads I'm working with have a variety of shades of green so the embellishment adds a little depth and personality to the piece, I think.
I also found a package of some really interesting silk waste in sunset colors (blues, oranges, purples) in one of my bins so I'm planning to work that into the sky.
There will also likely be an appearance by some of the fibers by Ancient Earth Echoes as embellishment on the cliffs.
