If you saw my post two weeks ago, Process - Flowers, then you are familiar with where I have been going with a particular design, Flowers. I'm not a flowery person, per se, but this winter has been so gray that I have been craving color, I guess, and have been making my own version of flower beads. Here's where I went next.
Then I decided I wanted to make some buttons. I love my button mandrels. I have to say that I made these before I received the April issue of Soda Lime Times - this is my own process, and sometimes people come up with similar ideas. In any event, I do like how these buttons look, and had fun using my pliers to make the ruffles. I'll have to figure out a way to provide more sophistication to the design; however, I can see these on a sweater for sure! These measure 24x28 and to make a statement would need to be bigger - I plan on making more in a bigger size!
While I was at it, I decided to put dots on disc beads - these ones are turquoise, lined with pea green, with teal green transparent dots. I really like these too!
So, I hope you enjoyed this second look into my own personal design process. I have decided that I need to keep a sketch journal, as well, and will be getting one and some colored pencils this week!
