Spool'n with Christine

 
Oh I am still laughing at my helpers!  They each have their own box and as we walk through the garage a head comes up.  All of us braved the elements  this afternoon to take pictures of my latest creations.  The wind about blew us away....have you ever tried to take ornament pictures while they are  trying to fly away??
 
 
Christine of One Kiss Creations came across these spools this summer and put out a challenge to us.  She sent along the spools and some beautiful beads and asked us to create.
 
Right away I dug into the "flying missiles"  






This was a great project to keep me learning how to read peyote patterns.
 
 
I have been a painter for years and decided the next project should be painted
 





 
I used dimensional texture paints and my "flying missiles "
 
 
Next up came me just playing
 
 
I use a paint treatment to crackle and then hi-lighted the spool with gold paint
 
 
 

another mat of random colors of black/gold/silver  peyote stitch
 
 
I finished it with the beads Christine sent.....
 After show season I will take the time to make the necklace
 
Thank you Christine for being such a wonderful friend.
I will say again I love the WWW
 how else could someone from Iowa get to meet a talented woman from Pennsylvania!
