Capitulating to the season change -- with beads
I've never looked forward to Fall, because that means Winter isn't far behind. However, I have grown to love the colors of a beautiful autumn season. My first fall card features ultrafine microbeads, my favorite size of clear beads to use. Since Suzanne at Pennywise Arts started carrying them, I've never been without. The leaves were stamped and colored with Copic markers; then I stamped paperback double-stick tape with the leaves, cut them out and applied the sticky to the colored leaves. After that, I smooshed them into ultrafine beads for this crystal sugar effect. I'll admit it: I can't stop the seasons!
